  • Baby potatoes – Choose same sized small aloo (potatoes). You can use cooked, peeled whole aloo or half sliced aloo.
  • Readymade puff pastry sheets – I used already rolled puff pastry sheets readily available in shops.
  • Onion – You need lots of onion for balancing the taste of puff along with boiled aloo.
  • Spices powders – Use you favorite spices for flavor along with red chilli powder. Mine has coriander powder, garam masala powder.

Where to buy puff pastry sheets in Chennai?

Amma Naana supermarket has puff pastry sheets, please do check. I used already rolled out sheets, but there is also block type which needs to be rolled out before baking.

Instructions

1. Take out the pastry sheets and leave it on counter top.

Storage

You can prepare the puffs until the step before baking, freeze it by arranging in a tray. Once frozen, put inside a freezer bag and freeze up to 3 months.

To bake frozen puffs, you need not defrost it. Just bake it straight away. Baking time may vary.

Top tip

Apparently, you can also do this without oven. There are many videos in the youtube. Just the same way you would do cake baking without oven. Here’s a useful link.

Please do not forget to see the package instructions on how to process the pastry sheet. Some needs to be rolled out, some are ready to bake. Mine is ready to bake.

I found half cut potato puffs are more balanced in taste than using whole potatoes.

Also make sure to use lots of onion, because after sauteeing, it shrinks in volume.
