Vegetable Puff Recipe using Homemade Puff Pastry Sheets | Veg Puffs Recipe

Vegetable puffsPuff pastry sheets are made up of laminated dough and butter packet. Puffs available in bakeries are very light, flaky, mechanically leavened pastry containing several layers of fats. But if we make the puff pastries at home we can avoid more usage of fats and make healthy. I have planned to post home made puff pastry recipe first before posting the vegetable puff recipe but still the pastry sheet post was not ready so am posting the vegetable puffs recipe here and soon will post How to make puff pastry sheets at home.
Vegetable Puffs are our most favorite snack that i make often at home but not now a days due to shortage of the pastry sheets at store near to my house.I then thought of making them at home and this is the first time ,some how i got the good result. Taste also same like store bought pastry sheets and happy that i have used very little fat for them.

I have already posted some recipes using the pastry sheets like Cheesy mushroom puffs,Puff Pastry Soup,Fruits mince pies,Sweet Pastry pin wheels.
Here is the recipe for the vegetable puffs,

  • use fingers firmly, press into the sides and press away ( help seal).
  • Put the Puffs on a foil or baking trays. Place in the pre-heated oven at  for 15-30 minutes.Once they are out of the oven, transfer them to a cooling rack and allow them to rest and cool down for 5 minutes.Serve with chutney or ketchup.
My Notes:

1. Use any vegetable of your choice and spice combination for the Puffs.Paneer makes the puff very rice and tasty.Adding finely chopped green chillies or cilantro are optional .
2. It is very important to allow the stuffings to cool for 5 minutes and then use it .

3.Use up left-overs subzis, keema or just scramble some eggs according to wish to make it innovative!

Enjoy the flaky Vegetable by adding your yummy and innovation stuffing.
