Making Puff Pastry @ Home

Making puff pastry is a tedious process which needs a lot of patience. Here i've made South Indian style Vegetable puffs with the puff pastry sheets i made.

Ingredients :

Plain Flour - 150 gms
Water - 1 cup
Butter - 250 gms
Salt - 1 tsp


Butter should be kept at room temperature for 15 mins

Puff Pastry Sheet Preparation:

Mix the flour, water and salt and knead the dough for few seconds and roll it using a rolling pin.
Now place the butter in the middle and cover it with the dough. Roll it again with a rolling pin. Repeat the process 5 or 6 times.Refrigirate it for an hour to avoid the butter melting away . Repeat this process thrice.Finally cut the puff pastry sheets . Freeze it and use when required . This comes in handy when we feel lazy to cook or there's an unexpected guest @ home.
