How to Make Special Vegetable Puffs

  • Sift the flour with a teaspoon of salt and baking powder.
  • Mix butter with the flour and knead into a stiff dough using very less water. Keep aside.
  • Heat 2 tbsp oil in a pan, saute the chopped ginger and onions lightly.
  • Add all the vegetables, chilly powder, pepper powder, coriander leaves, garam masala and salt.
  • Add a little water.
  • Stir well and cook on low heat till the vegetables are cooked and all the water dries up.
  • Remove and keep aside to cool.
  • Now take the prepared pastry dough onto a floured board and roll out into a thin sheet.
  • Cut rounds of about 10 cm diameter with a saucer.
  • Put a little of the cooked vegetable on one half of the rounds and fold the other half over.
  • Seal the edges by dampening with a little water.
  • Prepare the puffs in this way till all the dough and vegetable mixture are used up.
  • Heat oil in a fairly deep pan till smoky.
  • Slowly drop in the puffs, one by one (as many as the pan can hold).
  • Fry till crisp and brown on both sides.
  • Remove from the oil and drain.
