Chicken Puffs

I mostly sip on some loaded green smoothie for my lunch and so by the time the huss returns from work, I become extremely hungry and start rampaging the kitchen snack cabinet. I try my level best to stick to fruits but sometimes I give in and make some hot hot bhajis or chicken puffs for our tea time. Thanks to the readymade puff pastries available here, making puffs at home is a breeze and more economical than the Indian store bought-ones. The filling is a breeze to make and highly customizable, you can skip the chicken if you are a vegetarian or you could replace the chicken with gobi. The sky is your limit here, my friend.

~*What U Need*~
Chicken - 1 cup, cooked and shredded
Oil - 1 tbsp
Onion - 1 cup, finely sliced
Tomato - 1, chopped
Coriander - a handful, chopped
Curry leaves - 1 sprig
Green chilli - 1, sliced
Beans - 4-5, chopped
Carrot - 1, chopped
Ginger garlic paste -1 tsp
Chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
Garam masala powder - 1/2 tsp
Coriander powder - 1 tsp
Cumin powder - 1/8 tsp

Puff pastry sheets - 1 full sheet, thawed and cut into squares.

How I Made it:
Heat oil in a nonstick pan, add chilli and saute for a min. Add onions and stir-fry till cooked down and brown. Add ginger–garlic paste, and curry leaves and cook for 1 minute. Add and cook the tomatoes until soft and mushy. Add carrot and bean and stir-fry for 2 minutes. Add the spice powders and a splash of water and cook for 2-3 mins. Add the cooked meat and stir everything and cook for 3-4 mins. Remove from heat, add the coriander leaves.

Preheat oven to 350F. Roll the puff pastry to flatten it a bit. Spoon 1 tbsp of filling in the middle. Close the puff pastry using water to stick it. Egg wash it once and bake for 15 to 20 mins till golden brown and puffy. Serve warm with some ketchup!!!

So thats it Folks...
With Love,
