A savory puff with a filling of cooked vegetables and spices, this tasty snack is quick to make and even quicker to devour. The key to this recipe lies in the subtle use of spices and ensuring that all ingredients are fresh. While potatoes, carrots and green peas are the classic choice, feel free to customize with any vegetable that is in season.
This healthy snack is great for a high tea party or as an after school treat for the kids. It also makes for a delicious snack for guests on a party platter along with some chai or coffee.
These puffs are baked instead of fried, making them a healthier alternative. They can be stored in an airtight container for up to a week and can even be frozen and thawed when needed.
To make veg puff at home, start by thawing the pastry sheets as instructed on the package. Once thawed, sprinkle some flour on the work surface to prevent the sheet from sticking. Now take one portion and slightly elongate/stretch it to form a rectangle. Place a couple of tablespoons of the prepared stuffing on one side (bottom portion) of the rectangle and fold the top half over the bottom and press to seal.
Bake the veg puff in the preheated oven as per the instructions on the package. Once done, brush with milk for more golden colour and serve. This snack is best served warm and can be accompanied by tomato ketch up or green coriander chutney and a cup of tea or coffee. بف خضار
