Vegetable Puffs and Awards

Whenever I think about these vegetable puffs, I turn nostalgic and think of the days my dad used to get hot hot puffs from the bakery and we would be waiting for it..They were mostly got from the bakery and not prepared at home..But now that we get the puff pastries here it is an easy process to prepare these wonderful puffs filled with our favorite veggies..They serve as a perfect evening snack and we enjoyed it with tea..They serve as a perfect appetizer in any party..This is my entry for Recipe Marathon Day 2.But this is a very late entry I know, but my net connection was off yesterday so am posting this today..But felt it is better late than never..


Ingredients ( For 2 puffs)

Puff pastry (thawed) - 1
Potato - 1 small sized
Carrot - 1
Green peas - 1/4 cup
Onion - 1/4 chopped
Garlic - 1 pod
Chilli powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Garam masala - 1/2  teaspoon
Cumin - 1/2 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Oil - 1 teaspoon

The ingredients are only for 2 puffs..Multiply it according to your requirements.


Boil the vegetables with enough water and salt until they turn soft and mushy.
In a pan heat the oil,add cumin,onions,garlic and saute for a while.Add the vegetables and saute until the water evaporates.Add the chilli powder,garam masala and required salt.
Allow the contents to cool completely.
Meanwhile allow the puff pastry to thaw according to the package instructions.
Preheat oven to 400 degree F.
Place the puff pastry over a slightly floured counter and thin it out a little with the help of a rolling pin.Cut the pastry into the size required for a puff and place a spoonful of the vegetable mixture and close the puff pastry from one end to the other and seal with the help of little water.
Apply some oil over the top of the pastry..This gives a nice golden colour to the puffs.
Bake for about 20 minutes or until they turn golden brown.
Enjoy with any ketchup and tea..
