    Oil
    Grind into a Paste:


    Garlic-2 flakes
    Ginger-1/2 inch
    Green chilies-2
    Dough:

    Sieve Maida & salt. Add cold water & knead to a smooth dough. Cover the dough with a wet cloth and keep it aside for 30 minutes. Keep some maida for dusting.

    To Prepare the Stuffing:

    Cook the potatoes, peas, beans & carrot. Mash the potatoes coarsely. Heat oil in a pan & add cumin seeds and ground ginger, garlic & chili paste. Fry for few minutes. Add chopped onions and fry until, brown. Then put the boiled vegetables, turmeric powder, red chili powder, garam masala powder & salt. Mix well and fry until done. Then squeeze lime juice & put cilantro. Remove from fire.

    Puff Preparation:

    Melt vanaspathy and whip it till creamy & keep it aside. Take the dough & knead once again until it becomes smooth & elastic. Roll the dough into a large thin rectangle on a flat surface by dusting with remaining maida. Apply vanaspathy to 2/3rd of the rectangle leaving 1/2 an inch space all around.

    Fold the empty portion (without vanaspathy) first and the other side (with vanaspathy) on top of it. Roll this lightly into a rectangle and repeat the same process twice using the remaining vanaspathy.

    Cut this into small rectangles and keep the stuffing at the center & fold across. Seal the edges with water. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

    Pre heat the oven at 300 C. Apply little water to a tray and arrange the puffs with enough space in between. Brush little milk on top of the puffs and bake for 45 minutes u
    ntil golden brown. Serve hot.
