Vegetable puffs are very common tea time snack in India and its available at every local bakery in India. Vegetable Puffs are one of the most popular Indian Snacks worldwide. There are many varieties available for stuffing the Puffs pastry. The most common popular stuffing are potato and peas. Puff is also known as „Patties“ and can be made easily using pastry sheets. In German they call it as „Blaeter Teig“, which is available in all the German supermarkets. Using those pastry sheets, puffs can be made easily. In this Indian Recipe section, I have explained the homemade recipe to make Vegetable (Potato Peas) Puff.
When I was in India, after our office working hours, we used to order Vegetable or Egg or Chicken puffs. This always used to be tea time side dish for us and many of Indians. After my arrival in Germany, I didn’t get a chance to get buy Puff pastry from the shop. Since three years, I tried so many ways to make Vegetable puffs. Unfortunately none of the methods worked out for me. Finally I had tried vegetable puffs with Potato and Peas by using pastry sheet bake-dough, which we get from all the supermarkets in Germany (the pastry sheet in German is Blätter Teig). Germans usually use this pastry sheet for making some kind of typical German cakes and Pie.
When we were kids, my parents used to get super-hot vegetable puffs from bakery. Now its such easy process to make Puffs at home. It’s an excellent tea time snack. My husband loves to have Indian special foods. But, unfortunately I can’t make all the items, as we don’t get all the ingredients in Germany. I tried most of the recipes with the ingredients, which we can get from German supermarket. One of such recipe is Potato Peas Puffs. Yesterday, I made Vegetable puffs, all my friends loved it.
