Vegetable Puff

I got the inspiration of making puff after i read Archana's Spicy Meat Puff. I had a doubt as to where we would get the pastry sheets, and again it was cleared by Vineela and LG, thanks vineela and thanks LG. I found them and decided i will treat my little one and vinodh with this..I remember how much vinodh used to like them when we were in india. Every time the weather used to be gloomy he use to ask me if we could have a veg puff and a cup of hot coffee..What a treat isin't? But after coming out of india, never got the same taste that we used to eat.. This is how i made it..
