Only the GREATEST veg puffs on earth!!!

The other day I get a call from my bf asking me how long to bake puff pastry in the oven... I tell him that the directions are on the box, he says he has followed the directions but the puffs are still not done...I am no where near where he is, so I can't take a look at them for myself... so I start asking him lots of questions about the temperature, the pan, where he put the pan, how far away from heat source, etc...
I couldn't figure out what he was doing wrong, except that he hadn't turned them or rotated them, but eventually it all worked out, even though they were a little brown in the middle... But it was so funny to hear him getting all worked up because it wasn't turning out the way he was expecting... Ever since I had made them for him, the TOO TANGY ones, he wanted to try making them... he got all interested in the puff pastry and how to use it and watched me wrap the filling... So when he went home, he made some himself and took pictures, which is just TOO CUTE!!!

I was pretty much informed, in not so many words, that his filling was better than mine... which, if I remember correctly, had potatoes, tomatoes, onions, chilies and different "masala powders" that he just threw in there (which is how he makes a lot of things, I noticed.) I guess these powders didn't have so much amchur or tamarind!!! I wish I could have tasted them, and found something to fuss about... like maybe, they weren't tangy enough!!! ;) But he always makes yummy foods, so I probably would have loved them anyway!

Poor guy (brat) suffering through the tangy puffs!

Ha ha that is so cute of him to take pict of the puffs, The stuffing seems spicy and aromatic (All guys do the same, pick all the masala and just flavor the Indian dish-Boom they ve so flavorful dish!) Usually we don't add any tamar or amchur pwder for this puff masala!

~ Maybe that's why he was fussing, cuz it had some amchur... Now he will throw your comment in my face!!! But yeah, it was cute when he took pics :))

You got an assistant! If you're too busy with something, now he can take over :) I wonder what he put in them. The filling sounds similar to samosas' filling a little.

Thats so funny and cute! I once had an ex who wanted to repeat a gnocchi recipe I did,but panicked as he called the dough-'the blob' threatening to overcome him.Mind you-he eventually became an amazing chef!.It seems that your bf turned out to be quite skilled..you may want to let him show off those skills more often.. :) love,mia

Puffs look good. Your bf sounds so much like my husband. My husband rarely cooks, but always claims he's a better cook than me :-) Mostly, he cooks when i'm not around, so i can't tell :D

meeso said...

~ Thanks, everybody... Hey, if all these guys are better cooks then why aren't they cooking for us everyday, all the time??? ;)
