How to make Pate a choux

  1. Preheat your oven to 190 degree C. Boil milk, water, salt, sugar and butter. Take off heat and add sifted flour whisking all the time. Put it back on heat and mix till the dough comes to one round ball which will approx take 5 to 10 minutes.
  2. It is just a process to cook the flour. take off heat and cool it down. Add the eggs one by one incorporating it with the flour mixture. Finally what you get is a lovely shiny dough which falls with the slightest resistance.
  3. Put the mixture into piping bags with star nozzle or round nozzle depending on what shape you want to make. Round shapes for profiteroles, long cylindrical shapes for eclair or swan body shape for the swans.
  4. Also reserve some dough to make the swan heads. For the heads the temperature needs to brought down to 176 degree C for about 10 to 12 minutes.
  5. The choux needs to bake for about 25 to 30 minutes depending on the size or till its golden outside. The inside will be hollow and the bottom has a good crust. Cool it down completely before filling.
  6. The filling is quite easy as u bring together the mango puree, the custard, cream cheese, vanilla and whipped cream. Make holes in the pastry and fill with the cream. All good to go.
