Veggie Puffs

I had a couple requests to share the recipe... I adapted this from the Vegetable Cutlets recipe from Betty Crockers Indian Home Cooking.

You will need one package of frozen puff pastry, thawed.


  • 1 Tbs. vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp. cumin seeds
  • 1 small red onion, chopped small
  • 1 Tbs. ginger paste
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 16 ounce bag frozen mixed vegetables of choice
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 Tbs. mango powder
  • salt, to taste
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 tsp. cayenne powder
  • 1/4 cup water

Heat oil in large skillet, when hot, add cumin seed and sizzle 30 seconds. Add onion, ginger and garlic, fry for 2 - 3 minutes, until onion is golden. Stir in remaining filling and fry 1 - 2 minutes. Add water, reduce heat, and cover, simmering for 10 minutes. If water remains, remove lid and simmer a few more minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Stuff and bake! Eat and enjoy!

~ Thanks Vidhas... I see recipes for pastry sheets on quite a few blogs.

~ I'm glad you got the book, Cham! It's a good one, interesting thing is, the author doesn't eat meat and uses others to taste his food to write the recipes!
