Ingredients For stuffing
1 cup Mixed vegetables chopped finely (i used carrots, onion, tomato, potatoes, mushroom, peas, capsicum )
2 green chillies chopped finely
1tbsp ginger garlic paste
7-8 Curry leaves
1 tbspn red Chilli powder
1/2 tbspn sambhar powder or garam masala
1/2 tspn turmeric powder
1/2 tspn coriander powder
About 1tspn Mustard, jeera for sauté
Salt to taste.
Method : In a pan, heat some oil and sauté mustard and jeera until they crackle and then add in onion, curry leaves and green chillies. Sauté till slightly browned and add in. Ginger garlic paste and fry till raw smell goes away. Next add in veggies one by one and sauté everything till well cooked. Add in all spice powders and salt and stir well for 5 mins. Keep aside For puff base I used a ready made puff pastry sheet( 1 sheet is about 12 inches square and yields 4 puffs). Preheat oven to 220 deg celcius.
Meanwhile prepare a baking tray lined with aluminium foil and grease with oil slightly. Thaw and prepare the pastry sheets as per the instructions given in the cover. Cut the big pastry sheet into smaller squares and place 2 tbspn stuffing in each square and fold over in a triangle or fold in half (rectangular). Press down the edges with a fork. Place the puffs on the baking tray and coat the top with ghee slightly. Bake for 20-25 mins on 220deg celcius until the puff has become flaky and browned well. Serve with chilli ketchup and piping hot tea
