32 VEGETABLE PUFF

Vegetable Puffs


Who will not say to this crispy snack. It is my all time favourite. Just can make any of your favourite filling and stuff the sheets and bake and enjoy your home made puffs. Though I make this is often at home, never took any pictures and posted the recipe until a friend asked me to do few days back.


Puff pastry sheet - 2
Onion - 1 small chopped fine
Ginger garlic paste - 1 tbsp
Tomato - 1 medium chopped fine
Potato - 3 small
Mixed chopped vegetables( carrot, beans, green peas.....)
Capsicum - 1 small chopped
Chilli powder - 1 tsp
Coriander powder - 1 tsp
Cumin powder - 1/2 tsp
Coriander leaves - few chopped
Salt as needed
Oil - 1 tbsp
Butter or egg white - for brushing


Boil potatoes seperately in a pressure or microwave till very soft. Remove peel skin and mash well. Cook the other vegetables till soft but firm, can cook in a microwave. Just sprinkle little water and cook for 8 - 10 mts. Keep aside.

Thaw the puff pastry sheet for 20 minutes. If there is any crack, then apply few drops of water and seal.


Heat oil in a pan and add onion, fry till light brown. Next add ginger garlic paste and saute for over a minute till raw smell leaves. Then add tomatoes , mash and cook till pulpy and water leaves out fully. Now add all the powders and mix well. Finally add the cooked veggies( potato and other cooked veggies). Also add salt and coriander leaves. Reduce flame and mix well and cook for 2 - 3 minutes. Remove and cool completely.


Spread the puff sheets and cut each sheet into 9. One one side of each slice keep some stuffing and carefully fold into half. Repeat until you are done with all slices. If you have any remaining stuffing, you can use it for some vegetable cutlets or can use in your bread sandwich.

Use a fork to press and seal the edges. This will also give a nice look to your puffs.


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Brush melted butter or egg whites on top on each puff slices. Keep in the oven and allow it to cook/bake for 40 minutes. Keep checking in between. Cook till nice brown. Remove and serve hot with your favourite sauce.
