Curry Puffs


3 Potatoes, boiled, peeled and mashed

1 cup Green peas, boiled

2 Onions, medium (chopped)

2 Frozen puff pastry sheets

1 tbsp chillie powder

1 tsp coriander powder

1 tsp garam masala

1/2 tbsp dry mango powder

1 tbsp lemon juice

salt to taste

3 tsp oil


1. Heat oil in a kadhai, add onions and fry till soft.

2. When onions turn light brown, add boiled green peas and fry for 2-3 minutes on medium flame stirring in between.

3. Add chillie powder, garam masala, coriander powder, salt, dry mango powder and fry for 2 minutes.

4. Add mashed potatoes, mix well and allow to cook for about 5-6 minutes on low flame.

5. Switch off the flame, add lime juice, mix well and allow to cool. Mean while we will get ready with the puff pastry sheets.

6. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

7. Take 2 frozen puff pastry sheets, place them on an oven proof tray. Place in the oven for about 10 seconds to allow the pastry sheets turn soft.

8. Cut the puff pastry sheets to 8 equal pieces. Take a puff pastry piece, place a spoonful of curry in the centre. Seal it on top with another piece of puff pastry.

9. Gently cover all the four sides of the puff so that the curry does'nt pop out during baking time.

10. In the same way prepare remaining puffs and place them on a greased tray.

11. Bake these in the preheated oven for 20 minutes till the puffs turn golden brown.

Serve hot with tomato ketchup.
