What is a Croissant?
A croissant is a type of pastry, classically made with puff pastry dough so that it is light, flaky, and extremely buttery. Traditionally, croissants are formed into croissant shapes, which is probably where the name originated, since croissant means “croissant” in French. The pastries are extremely popular in France as well as in other nations, and are typically eaten with breakfast. In some cases, croissants may also be filled with sweet or savory ingredient, or used like bread to make croissant sandwiches.(Source: WiseGeek)
Sometimes we eat croissants for breakfast usually during weekdays when everybody is in a hurry in the morning. This is so delicious and filling! On one Sunday I wanted to try a different breakfast that is healthy and can be prepared in a short period of time. The 3 lonely croissants were staring at me, so thought of using them for my breakfast idea. The Curious George in me wanted to turn these croissants into a desi breakfast with all the veggies and spicy chilies.
