Vegetable Puffs

>> Monday, March 28, 2011

Hello everyone,

I hope everyone had a great weekend. Yeah, we did shopping, cleaning, laundry and lots of cooking.. ;) While shopping as usual I was busy with the grocery and Sree was roaming here and there. And he bumped on puff sheets kept in the freezer section.. Aww!! he almost ran towards me and yelled "My Vegetable Puffs!!!!!!!".. You've promised me a month ago and still haven't prepared.. Oops!! it's true.. I was postponing it for a month.. Sree is crazy about snack items esp. spicy stuffs.. And chicken puffs is his favourite.. But I was least interested in non-veg puffs. So, finally we decided with vegetable puffs.

I was confused with the shape of puffs. Some are rectangular and some are triangular shaped. Then, Sree was explaining the concept.. To differentiate between puffs, vegetable puffs are rectangular, non-veg puffs are triangular and paneer puffs are bit bigger in size.. WOW!! what an explaination but atleast makes sense.. ;)


Finally, on Sunday evening we had vegetable puffs with a cup of  hot tea. Here is the recipe for vegetable puffs.

Ingredients:

Puff Pastry Sheets - 1 packet, thawed
Potatoes - 2, boiled and mashed
Onion - 1, thinly sliced
Green Peas - 1/4 cup, boiled
Carrots - 1/4 cup, chopped and boiled
Ginger-Garlic paste - 1 tsp
Red Chilli pwd - 1 tsp
Turmeric Pwd - a pinch
Garam Masala - 1/2 tsp
Cumin - 1/2 tsp
Oil - 1 tsp
Salt to taste


Method:

In a pan, heat oil and add cumin. When they sizzle, add onion and saute until translucent. Add ginger-garlic paste. Saute for few mins. Add all the masalas and 1 tsp water. Saute the masalas.

Add vegetables (mashed potatoes, boiled green peas and carrot) to the masala. Add salt and mix well.
Remove from heat and let it cool for sometime.

Preheat oven to 400F for 15 mins. Meanwhile, take puff pastry sheets over a lightly floured surface. Roll it out a little using rolling pin and cut into required shape and size. Mine was already cut into rectangular shape. So nothing much to do. :D


Take a spoonful of vegetable mixture and place it on one side. Make sure, you leave little space on sides of the sheet. Close the sheet from the other end. As sheets are bit sticky, so just press and seal the sides.

Bake them for 20-25 mins or until they are golden brown.

Serve hot with ketchup or chutney.

Enjoy!!
