Aloo Puff

Doesn’t matter if I prepare each dish in-house, I still feel that there are many snacks/munchies which doubles my joy while eating on streets :P ‘Aloo Puff’ which is usually known as ‘Veg Puff’ on any food-stall in India. It’s a flaky, crispy n yummy snack that anyone would love to have for on-the-go biting :) I always used to get 2 puffs from a stall in the next street n mum always accompanied me in this quick treat ;) Here, I have to make it by myself only :(

Wanted to make this for a long time, but was waiting the right time! Right time in the sense of utilizing remaining sheets within a day or two :) A weekday evening when hubby works from home n I don’t get anything else to serve with a cuppa tea… opened a pack of Puff Pastry sheets, which I actually got to make a baklava rolls. Just used 1 of those sheets n made this cute little puffs!!! Try it out.. it’s quite an easy snack to make :)
