Vegetable puffs ( without using puff pastry)

                                In US, though in some shops ,our hometown famous puffs are available. They are bit costlier and taste is not up to the mark.So i thought of preparing it in home. I heard making pastry sheet in home is not an easy one.The alternative way,buying pastry sheets and preparing it in home just the filling. I don't know when ever i buy pastry sheet,either i won't use till expire date and only remind it when it got expired,else when i remember it and try to make it ,the sheet would be jammed well and fellt difficult to roll it.So most of my sheet will be wasted.I found an alternative way in net to prepare puffs. In my home freezer,we always have frozen parota. I heard we can make puff using frozen parota sheet. Sounds intresting,right. So whenever we feel to have puffs,we use the parota sheet and preparing filling for it or use leftover curries.


Frozen parota - 2
Egg - 1
Water - 2 tbsp

Filling :
Potato - 1 big
Chopped vegetable - 1 cup(Carrot,peas,beans,cauliflower)
Onion - 1 medium size
Chilli powder - 1 tbsp
Garam masala - 1/2 tbsp
Salt - as per taste
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Coriander powder - 1 tsp
Coriander leaves - 3 tbsp (chopped)
Curry leaves - 2 tbsp(Finely chopped)

For baking:
Baking tray - 1
Aluminium foil - to cover baking tray
Oil spray


* Chop all the vegetables and onion into fine pieces.
* Thaw the parota sheet alteast for 20 minutes.
* Pre-heat conventional to 325 degree.

1.In a kadai,add oil .Once it is warm,add onion,curry leaves and all vegetables. Cover and cook for 6     minutes.Once the vegetables are cooked ,now add potato and all dry  ingredients . Mix well and cook for 3 more minutes. Finally add coriander leaves and mix well. Transfer to a bowl and cool it.
2. Take the parota sheet which is in room tempertaure. Cut it in the center into half.Cut the circle into two semi circles.Apply little oil on top of the sheet and keep the filling in one corner of semi circle sheet and fold it with other corner.Apply water on corners to seal the edges.(If needed,we can cut the pointed edge ,so that we can get exact square shape of the puffs).
3.Beat the egg in a bowl and apply as a coat on top of the puffs.Place all the prepared puffs on oil coated aluminium foil.
4.Place the baking tray in conventional oven and bake for 10 minutes on each side.

Serve it hot alone or with tomato ketcup.


* We can add any vegetables to the filling.
* To get more puff thickness,instead of cutting the sheet,just fold the sheet and use it.
* Vegetarians can avoid coating egg,instead can use oil as coating.
* While baking,keep the tray in middle rack.
