Vegetable Puffs

My memories of the Crispy Crust veggie puff with soft stuffed spiced onions goes back to the days when I came to US more than a decade ago.Never had a thought that these puffs can be done at home!One of the best served tea time snack especially during winter season.

1 sheet Puff Pastry

For Stuffing:
Onion - 1/2 ( chopped )
Mustard & cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp each
Turmeric powder - a pinch
Chopped coriander
Green chillies - 2 or red chillie powder (   1/4 tsp)
Garlic to taste is optional
Oil - 2 tbsps
Salt to taste.
You can even add mixed vegetables for stuffing.

Method :
1. The first thing you have to do is thaw the pastry sheets for about 10 minutes.
Later cut the desired shapes. Usually cut them into square.
2. Meanwhile on the other side, in a heated sauce pan add oil with mustard,cumin seeds.After they splutter,add onions,turmeric powder & green chillies
3. Sauté them for about 5 minutes.
4. Mix well,adjust salt to taste.Turn off the heat and let it cool down.
5.By this time the sheets should be soft enough to stuff .With the help of a spoon spread the spiced onion curry above the sheet.gently seal them on the sides
6.Preheat the oven for 400 deg.Put them on a greased baking sheet and place it in the oven.Bake them for about 10 to 15 minutes or till crispy golden brown.Serve with tomato ketchup.
