Vegetable Puff Recipe | How to Make Veg Puff | Startup Cooking



vegetable puff

Vegetable Puff is an Indian appetizer or snack recipe that is popularly sold in many bakeries in India. It is basically a flaky pastry filled with some kind of savory filling, it may be vegetables, chicken, egg or only with potato filling and then baked until crispy and golden brown. These crispy, flaky savory pastries are usually relished with a cup of hot tea or coffee in the evening. 

I have used the store brought frozen puff pastry sheets because it is less time consuming. Before using the frozen puff pastry sheets thaw it as per the package instructions. Don't leave the sheets outside for too long then it becomes too soft and it will be difficult to handle. You can also use homemade pastry sheets for this yummy snack.

The recipe for veggie puff is really easy and the best part about this recipe is you can make these preparations ahead of time and either refrigerate or freeze them. Just bake and serve for big parties or sudden guests.

This snack is great for kids birthday parties, evening snack, special occasions, festivals, pot lucks or any get-together. Follow my step by step photo recipe to prepare Vegetable Puff. If you like this recipe share it, tweet it and pin it. Please do try and post your comments.
