To prepare this veg puff recipe, you will need a few ingredients, such as butter, flour, eggs, salt, and water. Ensure that you follow the instructions carefully and knead the dough properly to avoid any lumps. You can add more vegetables to the filling if you wish to change the taste. Moreover, the amount of butter used in this recipe can be adjusted according to your preference.
Start by thawing the puff pastry sheets as instructed on the package. Sprinkle some flour on your work surface to prevent the dough from sticking. Then, divide one of the thawed sheets into 9 equal parts. Slightly elongate/stretch each part into a rectangular shape and add couple of tablespoon of the filling on one side (bottom portion) of the rectangle. Close it by overlapping the top side over the bottom and press to seal. Repeat the process for remaining puffed pastry squares and place it on a baking tray. Brush each puff with milk and bake in preheated oven until the top turns golden brown. بف خضار
