Vegetable puff


When it comes to my tea time, I like to have some snacks & biscuits for munching along with a cup of tea. Occasionally, I spend little more time for its preparation. I bought puff pastry sheets & found lying in the fridge for few days, immediately I decided to make this tasty & my favourite vegetable puff. It was crispy & crunchy and perfect with tea. I remember my younger days, amma keep it ready after we come from school. Lovely days :)

Ingredients :
  1. Puff pastry sheet
  2. Vegetables (Carrot, beans, cauliflower, cabbage, potato) - 1 cup
  3. Onion - 1/2 piece
  4. Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
  5. Chilly powder - 1 tsp
  6. Turmeric powder - 1/8 tsp
  7. Lemon juice - 1/2 tsp
  8. Ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp
  9. Chopped corrainder
  10. Corriander powder - 1 tsp
  11. Chaat masala - 1/2 tsp
  12. Salt to taste
  13. Egg white - 1 no

Method :

  • Cook the vegetables in the salted water & keep aside.
  • Heat oil in the pan, add cumin seeds, chopped onions. Saute them for 3 min.
  • Add turmeric powder, ginger garlic paste & the cooked vegetables. Saute them for 3 min.
  • Add corriander powder, chaat masala, chopped corriander & finally lemon juice.
  • Allow the stuffing to cool.
  • Beat the egg white & keep aside.
  • Meanwhile cut the puff pasty in the desired shape & size. (I made rectangle shapes).
  • First, brush the egg white in the corners of the individual puff pastry. Stuff the vegetable mixture & seal the corners.
  • Also, brush the egg white on the top of the stuffed puff pastry on either side.
  • Rest the stuffed pastry in the freezer for 5 mins before baking.
  • Preheat the oven at 220 C & bake them for 10 to 15 min till crispy & golden brown in color.

Enjoy it with tea :)
