Easy POTATO CURRY Filled Puffs (Vegan)




Introduction: Easy POTATO CURRY Filled Puffs (Vegan)

This is a delicious, easy to prepare dish that will not take a lot of time. It is like a veggie pot pie that is filled with potatoes, carrots, peas, onions and seasoned with curry.  I tasted one that was made at a deli and thought to myself : "I can make this at home"... so this is what I came up with and it was worth the effort.   EASY is again the key word. If you are feeding a crowd, double or triple the recipe. One pastry is (with soup or salad) is a filling meal.  All ingredients are things you probably have in your refrig/freezer/pantry.  Very simple to put together.

Step 1:

10 small red Potatoes (or 2 Russets are fine)
1 Carrot
1/2 of a Onion
1/3 Cup of Peas (I used frozen)
Cooking oil ( I use Sesame)
1 box of Pepperidge Farm frozen Puff Pastry 
Indian Curry spice

Step 2: Prep Work

Before you start anything, take out (from the freezer) the Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry. It must be thawed for at least 45 minutes before using.   Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Step 3: Chop Veggies

Peel and chop potatoes.

Step 4: Dice

Dice onions and carrots.

Step 5: Steam Potatoes

Steam the potatoes until tender - 10-15 minutes.

Step 6: Saute the Veggies

Whle the potatoes are steaming, put 1 Tablespoon of (untoasted) sesame oil in a pan. Saute onions, add carrots, and peas. Add soy sauce for a slight salty taste.

Step 7: Potatoes Done Steaming

Stick a fork into the potato to see if it is done. Lift steamer out of the pan, throw the steam water away and put potatoes back in the pan.

Step 8: Mix

Mix the cooked veggies with the steamed potatoes. 

Step 9: Season Filling Mixture

Season to taste with salt, pepper, curry powder. Toss together.

Step 10: Working With the Puff Pastry

There are 2 sheets of puff pastry in the box. After 45 minutes of thawing, it is ready. Unroll one sheet and cut it into 4 pieces.

Step 11: Filling

Spoon a good amount of filling on to the quarter piece of puff pastry.

Step 12: Fold Pastry

Fold corners together to meet at the middle.

Step 13: Seal Edges

Close up the pastry by pinching it together so it is sealed tight.

Step 14: Squish Together

Squish (is that a real word?) the pastry together so there are no points sticking out.

Step 15: Repeat

Repeat this process (filing, sealing, squishing the puff pastry) This one box of puff pastry will make 8 babies. Place it on a baking sheet.  I lined my cookie sheet with parchment paper, but it is not necessary if you don't have it on hand.

Step 16: Bake

Bake it in a preheated 400 degree oven for 25 minutes. (Time depends on how hot your oven runs) Check on it after 20 minutes. To be done, it must be nice and brown on the bottom and light golden and crusty looking on the top. Leave it in the oven until it looks done.

Step 17: Done!

Take out of the oven and let it cool till warm. 

Step 18: Serve

Yummmmmm! Enjoy....

    Thanks this recipe is really lovely. I added coconut milk because mine looked a bit dry and it was delicious.

    I think filling these with spiced lentil+spinach mixture could be awesome. Thanks!

    Thanks for the comment -glad you like the looks of these. I am a vegan and I always make sure that the things I buy are vegan. Here are the ingredients of the Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry Sheets (copied straight from the back of the box) :

    "Made from: unbleached enriched wheat flour (flour, niacin,reduced iron, thiamine mononitrate[Vitamin B1], Ribolavin[Vitamin B2], folic acid), water, vegetable oils (palm, soybean), contains 2 percent of less of: high frutose corn syrup, salt, monodiglycerides, soy lecithin, malted barley flour, tumeric and annatto extracts for color. Pepperidge Farn, Inc. Norwalk, CT 06756"

    All vegan, no butter.

    I would like find a recipe to make my own Puff sheets...but for now, these bake up wonderfully beautiful...
