At home i tried this puffs with ready made puff pastry sheets(available in any Grocery store from frozen section).Like me now,my kids also love to eat  these puffs.Heres the recipe...

  • allow the vegetable stuffing to cool down completely.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  • Prepare the puff pastry sheets as per the instructions given in the cover.
  • Then cut the sheets in to rectangular shape and keep 2 tbsp of filling at one side and fold the other side and cover it..seal the edges with water.do same for all sheets and
  • Place them in an oven safe container and bake it for 30-40 minutes.

Tips: To get nice brown color brush the puffs with butter or egg white..(i didn't do it)
You can also reduce the filling amount..(.i like more filling )
Check the puffs for every 15 minutes...once u get nice brown color and crispy remove from the oven..no need to wait for 30-40 minutes.(for me it took 32 minutes)

  1. hi sangee,

    can i use spring roll pastry sheet for this ???if so how??

    1. You cannot substitue puff pastry with spring roll sheets for vegetable puffs...to make puffs u should use pastry sheets only.
      But still u can use spring roll sheet n it will be like samosa or spring rolls only.
      To use spring roll sheets- thaw it completely before use, then take one sheet keep the filling seal the edges with maida water n roll/shape to your desired shapes.
      Hope this helps if u want to know in detail?! Sure will make a post kn using spring roll sheets...Thanks n feel free to ask any doubts or to share ur suggestions.
