Simple Puffs

I had some subji leftover from afternoon. It was kind of in a weird quantity, not too much to be used again for a meal and not too little to discard. So I thought of just making them into puffs for a nice evening snack when hubby comes back home. Since that is too spicy for my 18 month old, I also baked a batch of the same puffs using just cheddar cheese, basil and pepper for her. Needless to say, in the end there were two very happy people.


Cabbage Poriyal
- 1 cup
Puff Pastry sheets - 4
Grated Cheddar Cheese (or any variety) - 1 cup
Ground Pepper - 1 tsp
Dried Basil - 1/2 tsp
Butter (to apply on sheets if necessary)

  • Mix the cheese, pepper and basil and set aside.
  • Spread out a pastry sheet. Coat it with a little melted butter if directions call for it.
  • Spread half of the cabbage poriyal on top of it almost evenly.
  • Place one more pastry sheet on top. Spread the other half of the poriyal.
  • Hold both the sheets together and roll them.
  • Cut into 2 inch wide discs.
  • Preheat oven and bake thoroughly as indicated in the puff pastry package.
  • Repeat the same process by substituting the cheese mixture.
  • Serve with hot sauce / mint chutney.
