CHICKEN PUFF

I was starving to have chicken puff since long. So got a chance to prepare when my cousine visited my place. He too enjoyed having it and trust me friends they were just too good to be true. We enjoyed having puffs with brocolli garlic fry. Its very good quite filling appetizer at parties and also would be perfect on rainy day.


INGREDIENTS.

1 Sheet Puff pastries.

1 1/2 cup Boiled shredded chicken.

1 Chopped onion.

1 tbsp Chopped Garlic.

1 tbsp Chopped Ginger.

1/2 Mashed Potato.

1 tsp Chilli powder.

1/2 tsp Turmeric powder.

1 tbsp Garam masala.

1 tbsp Oil.

1 Egg.

Salt and pepper to taste.

METHOD.

For shredded chicken:
I used chicken thigh pieces. Cut into small piece. Boil water adding salt and red chilli powder. Drop the chicken piece and let it cook for 15 min. Drain and shred them. Keep it aside.

For the stuffing:


Heat oil in a pan. Add ginger and garlic followed by chopped onions. Saute them till onions becomes translucent. After its done, add chilli pdr, turmeric pdr, garam masala and salt. Then add shredded chicken and mashed potato. Mix it all together so that masala coats the chicken mixture. Lastly add the crushed pepper and remove. Allow the mixture to cool.

Thaw the puff pastry as per the manufacturer's direction. Sprinkle some flour on the top of your board. Now cut the puff sheets into 6 squares carfully. Take out spoonful of chicken mixture and place them on the one side of each pastries pieces.
Seal the edges with water and fold them carefully. Press the edges with a fork to give a good look.


Whisk an egg and brush them on the top of each puffs. This makes puffs shiny and even more crispy. Pop them into an preheated oven for about 15 min or until its golden brown.


Serve them hot with ur favourite veggie stir fry.



Enjoy!!
