Vegetable Puffs


Here's a simple snack for a party. Takes hardly any time to put together, and totally delicious. These can be prepared well in advance and kept.


I have lot of memories associated with Vegetable Puffs. My mom used to get this for me very often. I like both the sweet and savoury version. Nowadays I make this puffs often using homemade puff pastry sheet, making them at home gives you a different joy that just cannot be explained. I made these for a party in my house and they turned out superb with crispy outer layer and delicious filling.
Ingredients:

1 Pastry sheet
4 Potatoes
2 Carrots
1/2 Cup Beans
1 Onions – finely chopped
4 Green chillies –  finely chopped
1/4 Teaspoon Turmeric powder
1 Teaspoon Coriander- Cumin powder
A pinch of Garam masala powder
1 Tablespoon Coriander leaves – finely chopped
Salt as required
1 Tablespoon Oil

Method

Take a pastry sheet from freezer and thaw for 30 minutes.

Boil the potatoes,peel and cut into small pieces or mash them lighlty .

Heat oil in a pan, add chopped onions fry till translucent, then add the beans, carrots, green chillies and fry for  few mintues.  Add turmeric, salt, coriander cumin powder and fry well.  Cover and cook till veggies are cook.  Then add mashed potatoes and fry for 3 -4 minutes.  Take down from flame add the garam masala powder and coriander leaves.  Mix well and keep to cool.

Slowly unfold the pastry sheet and cut into  square pieces. Roll each piece with rolling pin to make it little thinner.


Put about 2 tablespoons of vegetable filling in each of them, applying little water over the edges.  Fold the puff and lightly press the edges.  Arrange them in a tray (do not grease the tray) and lightly brush them with milk.

Bake in a preheat oven to 180  degree. Place the prepared puffs on a baking tray and bake for 20 to 25 minutes.

Tastes good when warm with tomato ketchup.
