Aloo Puffs

Golden, flaky, spicy and perfect with tea! That is the dish in a nutshell. It brings back great memories, Christmas parties at school, birthdays with friends and more recently, evening teas with husband... And there are tell tale signs of having eaten some, a trail of crumbs on your clothes!
Puff pastry is readily available in most American supermarkets. In India you can try local bakeries, they sometimes sell these. It can be made at home as well but requires some effort. The size we are looking at is about 10x10 or 12x12. The ones below are a large size. If you want you can also make 6 smaller ones from one sheet.

Ingredients:

1 1/2 - 2 cups basic potato stuffing
1 sheet frozen puff pastry
1 tablespoon melted butter (optional)
Water to seal the pastry

Thaw the puff pastry in the refrigerator. Preheat the oven to 400 F. Cut the pastry sheet into 4 pieces. Place about 1/3-1/2 cup of the filling in the center of one puff pastry piece. Wet the edge with water and press to seal completely. Place a parchment paper on the baking tray and place the 4 puffs keeping 1 inch space between each of the pieces. Brush the melted butter on the surface to give it an even more golden hue (the ones in the photo above are without butter). Bake for 15 minutes or till the puffs are puffed and golden on the outside. Serve hot with a cup of tea and some ketchup on the side!
