  • Potato - 2, medium

  • Cumin Seeds - 1 tsp
  • Red chilli powder/ pav bhaji powder - 1 tsp + ¼ tsp(I used pav bhaji powder)

  • Garam masala powder - ½ tsp
  • Fennel seed powder – ⅛ tsp (optional)
  • Chat masala – pinch
  • Turmeric powder - ⅛ tsp
  • Oil/ ghee - As needed
  • Salt - as needed
Method
  1. Cook the potatoes in pressure cooker/ microwave and peel the skin; mash the potatoes
  2. Add oil to the pan and heat it on medium flame. When the oil becomes hot add fennel seed powder and cumin seeds; let it crackle.
  3. Add ginger garlic paste and sauté for 30 seconds. Add onion and sauté till it becomes translucent. Add garam masala, coriander powder, pav bhaji masala, turmeric powder and allow it to cook for 3 – 5 mins
  4. Add the Veggies, 3 tbsp of water and salt; close the lid and cook for 6-8 min till the veggies are cooked. If required sprinkle extra water. Add the mashed potato and 1 tbsp of water; sauté for 2-3 minutes till the masala blends well
  5. Pre heat the oven to 425 Degree Fahrenheit and line the baking tray with parchment paper/ aluminum foil; grease it with cooking spray/ oil
  6. Thaw the pastry sheets as per the instructions on the cover
  7. Cut into rectangles of the desired size and place it on the parchment paper
  8. Put 2-3tbsp of filling on one of the sheets; fold and cover the stuffing. Seal the edges with fork marks. Repeat the process and grease the puff with oil/ghee
  9. Bake for 15-20 mins, until golden brown in color. Let it cool for 2-3 minutes, enjoy the puff with some ketchup
Notes
1. Paneer/tofu, cabbage, capsicum etc. can also be added for stuffing
2. I stuffed the puff directly in the baking sheet instead it can be done in a plate and transferred
3. If you desired to cut down oil, grease the puff with egg wash
4.If you are consuming the puff after sometime, let it remain in the oven till you consume to retain he crispness
