Dabeli Puff Pastry

Author: Ruchita // Category: , , ,

Yes you read it right. Something different from the normal veg pastry that we make. This idea was suggested by my husband who always likes to try new things while cooking. I wasn't sure of it initially but thought of giving it a try anyways and to my surprise it turned out to be quite delicious. Hope you all would try too and agree with me.

1 packet Puff pastry roll or sheet (can be obtained at any superstore)
5-6 Potatoes boiled and mashed
1/2 cup peanuts (optional)
8-10 tbsp Dabeli masala (depending on flavour)
1/2 cup Pomegranate seeds
Salt as per taste
2 tsp Olive oil
Little qty Maida for rolling

1) Heat 1 tsp Oil in a vessel and add the mashed potatoes to it. Add 7-8 tbsp Dabeli masala and salt as per taste. Stir well and cook till all the masala mixes well. Keep aside.

2) If using Peanuts then follow this step. Heat 1 tsp oil in a vessel and roast the peanuts till they turn light brown. Add 2 tbsp dabeli masala and salt as per tatste. You can add 1/2 tsp sugar if you want to give it a sweet taste. Ensure that the peanuts are brown and fully covered with the masala.

3) Add the Peanuts and Pomegranate seeds to the mashed potato mixture when ready to stuff the pastries.

4) Keep the pastry sheets out for some time if refrigerated so that it becomes soft. Make small balls of the pastry and roll them into small circles like rotis around 12 cm diameter, with help of rolling pin. Use plain flour (maida) to help while rolling.

5) Cut the prepared circles into half. Take one half of the roti and make a cone shape out of same just like a samosa. Fill the cone with the prepared mixture of mashed potato, peanuts and pomegranate. Seal the sides of cone by pressing lightly with hands and ensure that it is properly sealed.

6) Repeat the above procedure for all remaining pastries as shown in pic above.

7) Preheat the oven for 5-6 mins at around 200C .

8) Meanwhile take a baking tray and grease with little oil or alternately place a non stick cooking liner on the tray. Arrange the pastries on the tray and bake it for 10-15 mins depending upon the oven.

9) Keep checking the pastries at regular interval and turn them over so that they are evenly cooked at both sides. Remove when brown in color. Serve with Coriander chutney or Ketchup.
