Vegetable puff Today’ recipe under the savory and miscellaneous baking theme for the mega marathon is vegetable puff.
Vegetable puff always reminds,my college days where we used to eat these puff almost every other day.Our college bus used to stop near the bakery shop and after getting down we used to hit the bakery and enjoy these puff with a cup of tea.
After coming to U.S,made veggie and egg puff with the store bought puff sheet,almost for every party or get to gathers. After some point we all got bored and stopped making.Its been almost an year we had these.
But this time I wanted to try making the puff pastry at home and it came out so good.I followed the basic Vahchef method.

This method is so simple and easy to make in short span of time and the outcome is a crispy and flaky puff.I baked only 7 puff and kept the rest in the freezer for future use.I made these puff on a sunny day and we were doing the lawn work,so we had it along with the lemonade instead of tea.The puff pastry can also be frozen for later use.I made the pastry on the previous day and made puff on the next day.Lets move on to the recipe.
