Veggy Cheesy Puff

This is a wonderful picnic or a movie or a togo snack. Easy to make with very little efforts. The first time I made these puffs when my darling hubby, Shu and myself went for a picnic on the Antelop island in Salt lake city Utah.

Today I am planning to make some triangular shaped and also want to experiment with different and exciting shapes to serve for tea parties. 


Sliced onions - 1 cup
Shredded cabbage -1 cup
Green peas-1 cup
Puff pastry dough (frozen)
red chilli powder(paprika)- 1tsp
garam masala or curry powder- 1 tsp
lime juice
Freshly chopped cilantro (coriander leaves)
Grated cheese
salt to taste

  Thaw the pastry dough. It should not become very soft. Or keep it in the refrigerator so that the shortening in it does not melt at room temperature.
1. Heat oil in a pan.
2. Saute onions till they turn translucent.
3. Add shredded cabbage and peas.
4. Add salt, mix well, cover the pan and allow the veggies to cook for 5-8 mins or untill they are nice and tender.
5. add turmeric, paprika and garam masala (optional). Mix well.
6. Cover and cook for another 3 min.
7. Add lime juice and freshly cut cilantro. Allow the filling to cool
8. Open the three fold pastry dough gently. If the dough cracks don't worry :)  :)  :) roll the dough with the rolling pin.
9. Cut into 2" squares

10.  Add tsp of veggie filling and grated cheese.

11. Fold into triangular shape.

12. Bake in preheated oven at 375 degree for 20 min. or till it turns golden brown.
13. Cool for 5 mins.

14. Enjoy!!!!

Make pastry dough cup in cupcake pan. Fill it with a tbsp. of filling and grated cheese. Bake for 20 min.
