Recipe type: Snack
Cuisine: Indian
Serves: 12
Ingredients
  • ½ recipe vegan puff pastry
  • 3 medium potatoes, boiled and chopped into a medium dice
  • 1 cup frozen green peas
  • 2 green chillies, finely minced
  • 2 tsp canola oil
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • A generous pinch of asafetida (hing)
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • 1 tbsp grated ginger
  • ¼ cup chopped coriander leaves
  • Salt to taste
Instructions
  1. Heat the oil and add the cumin seeds and asafetida. When the cumin sputters and crackles, add the ginger, stir-fry for a few seconds, then add the turmeric. Stir quickly to mix, stir in the chillies, then add the potatoes.
  2. Saute, stirring frequently, for a few minutes until the potatoes are well-coated with the turmeric and oil. Add salt, mix in the coriander leaves, and set aside to cool.
  3. Roll out the puff pastry into a square of about 8 inches. Cut with a pizza cutter into six pieces by making one cut down the middle and then three cuts horizontally.
  4. Take one of the squares and roll separately into a slightly larger square. Place a couple of heaped teaspoons of the filling in the center, moisten two sides, and fold over the puff pastry in a triangle. Press down on the edges to ensure they are sealed.
  5. Repeat until you have 12 puffs.
  6. Bake in a 350-degree oven for 45-60 minutes on an ungreased baking sheet until they are crisp and lightly golden-brown.
  7. Serve hot with some chutney or even ketchup.
