Author Notes

A snack that is traditionally deep fried, resulting in a very crispy finish, but the bread would soak the oil up like a sponge! I have adapted the recipe and added cubes of butter and bake these instead, the amount of butter can be adjusted to you liking. The arjardt, or cucumber relish is usually served with a large variety of fried foods, predominantly tart, it will cut through the oiliness and richness of fried foods, bringing back a welcomed balance and cleansing the palette. —siamesecooking
