Gobi Puffs/Cauliflower Puffs

        This is the first time i didn't post any recipe and also didn't visited any of your blogs also for 4 days continuously...becoz of  the problem exist in Blogger.com.The problem comes and goes off..really frustrated,so i was idle with more patience...As i am on the way to post my 200th recipe this problem makes me more irritating n i was worried a  lot...There were some recipes still in draft with photos alone..Hope at least by this week i try to post all my recipes in full swing :)
Coming to this Gobi Puffs..compared to veg,egg n mushroom puffs i like this gobi puffs very much..This is my Home town special...available only in Saravana Bakery,Salem.That too with time limited ie.11.30 am to 1.30 pm. Me and my sister during weekend our only job was to relish these gobi puffs from SB.I don't know the exact recipe of gobi stuff prepared by them but i enjoyed it in my own style :) The result was so good and we all enjoyed..After seeing Aipi's samosa puff,baked in muffin pan..i  also tried for a attractive shapes.Thanx Aipi.kids liked this flower like cups a lot :)
