Instructions
Step 1: Prepare the pastry bun
  1. Place one sheet of prata and remove the top plastic layer. Line 3 pieces of chocolate on the prata skin and use a pizza knife and slice it into strips according to the width of the chocolate bar. Roll up the individual chocolate bar with the prata skin and remove the excess.
  2. Repeat the same steps for the remaining bun.
  3. With the opening facing down, place it on the baking sheet. Leave a gap of 2-inch from the next bun as the prata skin will expand as it bakes.
Step 2: Bake the pastry bun
  1. Brush the pastry buns with egg wash.
  2. Place the buns into the oven. Bake for 180oC for 10 mins, until golden brown.
  3. Remove from the oven and let cool for 3 mins.
Step 3: Prepare the ganache, dust it with powder and serve
  1. Lay the chocolates in their individual bowl. In a saucepan, heat up whipping cream on low heat. Once it starts to simmer, pour into the chocolates. For the green tea with white chocolate ganache, add in green tea powder into the white chocolate ganache.
  2. Drizzle over the baked pastry buns, leave it cool for a while.
  3. Sieve strawberry/chocolate/green tea powder lightly and it's ready to serve.
