Vegetable Filling for Puffs

Arranging puffs and baking:

1. Carefully remove one pastry sheet and lay on a floured surface.

2. Cut it into 4 squares each. You can cut into smaller parts too.


3. Place a tablespoon of the filling in the middle of each part.

4. Slowly pull from one side and seal to the other end. Then seal off all other sides.


5. Place them on a baking tray and bake them at 200 degree Celsius for 20 minutes or until the top has turned golden brown.


Serve with tomato ketchup.


Notes:

1. Handle the pastry sheet as little as possible using a light careful touch to avoid stretching and damaging the layers.

2. Whenever cutting the pastry sheet, use a sharp knife.

3. If pastry sheet has become too soft to handle, refrigerate till firmer, approximately 10 minutes.

4. Do not put lot of stuffing into the pastry sheet.

5. The filling should be dry. Do not add any water to cook the vegetables.
