Paneer-Mushroom Puffs

A few ingredients make me happy! For example, Mushrooms <3 Give me mushrooms paired up with any ingredient and I’ll gobble up all!!! Weekend breakfast or brunch never goes without it… And even on weekdays, I love adding it to curries, rice dishes, patties etc. Now you only say, isn’t it so versatile?

Sometime back, a foodie-buddy Nidhi made these puffs! Ohh yes, she made a batch for India vs. South Africa match… What if I wasn’t going to go stadium? I also baked a small batch for two of us ;) The combination of ingredients worked too good… Mushrooms, Olives, Paneer and Capsicum!!! “Win-Win” it was. Yes, India won and these puffs too ;) Here you go with her ingredients with my Indian spices-addition…
