Vegetable Curry Puff


Learnt From: My friend Saroj.

Makes: 12 puffs

Ingredients:

Puff Pastry Sheets --- 1 packet (I got this from Price Chopper)
Potatoes --- 2
Carrots --- 2
Green Peas --- ¾ cup (I used frozen peas)
Turmeric Powder --- a pinch
Salt --- as per taste
Red chilly powder --- 1 tsp
Garam masala --- 1 tsp
Coriander / Dhania powder --- ½ tsp
Cumin / Jeera Powder --- ½ tsp
Water --- ¼ cup
Coriander leaves --- 6-8 strands

Note:

You can even add cabbage and cauliflower to it. It is much more tastier. But I used only potato and carrots. If are using other vegetables also adjust the spices and do it with one potato and one carrot.

For Seasoning:

Oil --- 1 tblsn
Mustard Seeds --- ¾ tsp
Cumin seeds --- ½ tsp
Hing --- a pinch

Process:

First take the puff pastry sheets from the freezer and keep them outside. (It should be out for 40 minutes approximately before using. So first keep them out and in the mean while start making curry. )


Peel the skin of potatoes and carrots. Clean them and chop them into very small pieces. Keep the chopped potato pieces in water. So that … the color of potatoes won’t change.
Heat a tblsn of oil in a pan.
Season it nicely with mustard seeds, cumin seeds and a pinch of hing.
Then add the chopped vegetables and cleaned green peas to the pan.


Add a pinch of turmeric powder and enough salt to the vegetables.
Add ¼ cup of water.
Cover it and cook till they are half done.


Stir occasionally.
In the meanwhile, chop coriander leaves. Keep them aside.
Add a tsp of red chilly powder, a tsp of garam masala, ½ a tsp of dhania powder and ½ a tsp of jeera powder. Add water if needed.
Again cover it and cook till done. Stir occasionally.


Add chopped coriander leaves … cook for a while and turn off the heat.
Now take the puffs and cut nicely wherever there is a folding. You will 6 sheets from one packet. Again cut each sheet into half. Then you will get 12 pieces from one full packet.
Take a sheet and test it. The sheets should not be hard. It should be soft and foldable. Then it is right to use. If it’s not … wait for some more time till you are able to fold it.
Pre-heat the oven at bake and 400 degree Fahrenheit (till the red light turns off).
Take water in a small bowl. Dip one of your fingers into the water and apply water to the 4 edges of the piece.
Now take full spoon of the curry and place it on the sheet.


Close the edges nicely. Make sure the edges of puff stick properly.


In the same manner stuff the curry into the puffs.
Place the stuffed puffs in an aluminum foil or cake pan or persulin plate. Anything is fine.
When the oven is pre-heated (when the red light of the oven turns off), keep the plates in the oven carefully.
Keep the thicker one on the bottom grill of the oven and keep the aluminum foil on the top of grill.


Bake it for 30-35 minutes till the upper layer of the puffs turn to brown color and crispy.
Turn off the oven switches, keep the oven open and wait for 10 minutes.


Take the plates carefully from the oven.
Wait for 5 more minutes.
Have them or serve them with tomato ketchup.


Look the layers of the puff.


Enjoy the taste of curry puffs. MMM … Yummyyyy …

  7. I have a theory that young, slim, beautiful girls cannot cook. The best cooks look matronly, more like a prestige pressure cooker in girth.

    I have to say you proved me completely wrong. Great web site. Tried the veg puff. Haven't had one in 10 years. Wonderful.

    Suggestion - Allow the readers to contribute recipes on this website. Of course, you should be the moderator/editor.

  10. Hi,

    I have been meaning to try making veggie puffs for some time now. I love your recipe and will try it soon. It looks easy, detailed and tasty. I saw on You Tube that instead of puff pastry sheets we can use the Malayasian (Khawan brand)uncooked frozen Parathas. Will try this and let you know the outcome. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
