This too like lemon rice has been as draft and in my photo slide for about 4 - 5 months ..for the simple reason its so simple.. hahaha..
Actually this is my very favorite item.I used to be so crazy about this in India, specially the one that was sold in 'Hot Puff's kilpauk. I love to learn new dishes specially the once i like to eat.So my dad arranged me to visit a bakery ,where the chef taught me how they made puffs.It wasn't too hard but i felt the pastry preparation was real waste of time .....Instead i can get nice big veggi puffs in 'Hot puffs'
After coming here in one of the potluck we had this in our menu.I didn't want to choose this as my item.But later one of my neighbour said it was so easy that we just have to buy the pastry sheet and use our filling and bake.... OMG! it sounded simple.so i was finally able to do my favorite item ...
