Vegetable Puffs

Posted by Annita on March 13, 2006

Finally I got a better crust for puffs.Yesterday I made Vegetable Puffs using Pepperidge Farm Ready to roll sheets.I got it from the frozen section(Pie crust) of Walmart Super Center.I’ve posted a Chicken Puffs recipe before,in which I’ve used Phyllo sheets.Now I guess Phyllo sheets are not a good choice for puffs.And this is how i made the filling for my veg puffs …
Boiled Potatoes -3
Chopped Onion-1
Chopped Green Chillies -3
Green Peas – 1/2 cup
Ginger-Garlic paste -1/2 tsp
Turmeric Powder -a pinch
Red chilly powder -1/2 tsp.
Garam masala -1 tsp
Coriander leaves chopped – 1 tbsp
Jeera seeds – 1/2 tsp
Lemon juice – 1 tsp
Salt – to taste
Oil – as needed
Mash potatoes lightly with hand and keep aside.Heat oil in pan and allow jeera seeds to splutter.Add onion ,ginger-garlic paste,green chillies and salt and saute for a while.Add all the masala powders and again saute for a few minutes.Add mashed potatoes and green peas and mix well.Simmer for few more minutes .Switch off the burner and add coriander leaves and lemon juice.Mix well and keep aside.And now the filling is ready to use.Now just put the filling in the pastry sheets after cutting it to any desired shape.The pastry sheets should be rolled thin before cutting…you can roll it just like chappathi.After the filling is done fold it over and stick the ends together using water or beaten egg white.
Bake it in a preheated 400F oven for 15- 20 mts or until brown.

    I have always used those Pepperidge pastry sheets and they work out perfect.

    At first I made a mistake of trying it with Phyllo sheets…:))


  2. […] Recently i bought puffed pastry sheets for the first time and made vegetable puffs using Anita's recipe and it turned out just like the store bought ones. I had one sheet left and wanted to try spinach pockets that i had seen in food network TV , but they used few ingredients that i dint have in my pantry. I was checking for some recipe using puffed pastry sheets and i found Emerils recipe. The recipe was very simple but again i dint have few ingredients . I added peanuts for a extra crunch so had to do it with what i had . The results were awesome !! here's the recipe … […]

    Hi Annita!
    Hope you and uyour family are doing well. I learnt this recipe of making puffs with Pepperidge farms pastry sheets soon after coming to California 6 years back:)And since then it has been one of my family favourites. But I will definitely try your recipe for filling. I used to love the veg puffs we get in bakeries in Kerala. They taste different from the ones I used to have growing up in Delhi:) I hope these are the south indian way of making them: will def try. thanks dear.

    Thanks for this wonderful recipe – this is the first time I have used puff pastry sheets – so had no clue what to except. But still it turned out good. Even my 4 yr old who hates spicy food ate one! For those who have questions as to how much you need to roll the sheet, I guess you can roll it out to about 1 1/2 of its original size .

    I’m looking for a good vegetable biryani recipe – if you have one or have a link please do post it here.

    Thanks once again.

  21. Gayathri said

    Thanks for the recipe.. It looks and sounds really good. I am in Chicago and got the ‘pastry sheets’. I just wanted to chk with u if what i got was the right thing. The pastry sheets that i got are tissue thin.. with several rolled into one package. How do i now use this? do i butter sheet by sheet/ do i roll it? or have i bought the wrong ones? i would love to make these but am confused as to how to go about it.. i would really appreciate ur help.. thanks

    Gayatri,I think you’ve bought the wrong sheets…Did you buy Athens Fillo easy to use pastry sheets…?
    That comes in layers..i made puffs with that at first..check my chicken puffs

    Then i found pepperidge farm puff pastry sheets…thats better than the other thing…this doesn’t come in layers…its just a thick sheet of dough…you can make good puffs with pepperidge farm pastry is available in all the local grocery stores .Hope this helps

    Hi Annita! I made these for a potluck yesterday and everyone loved these puffs! I almost got the phyllo sheets by accident (since they were on sale) but I’m so glad I stuck to the Pepperidge Farm puff pastry sheets. Thank you SO much for this wonderful blog!
