MEAT PUFFS

                 Meat puffs always comes with nostalgic memories...................whenever i make this i always think of those childhood days when we used to go to bakeries and eat those puffs in the glass cupboards.................in those days i thought these were something only big chefs can make and requires great skill.................but coming abroad and seeing the readymade puff pastry sheets i now know that even kids can make it...................in this i have used a filling with beef kheema...................i also added some carrots and potatoes while making the filling so that my picky eater sonny will get to eat some veggies.......the trick always works becoz in the whole mix of masala he will never recogonize those..........all moms with picky eater kiddies should try this.............vegetarians can make their own filling by substituting beef with aloo,paneer etc.....................so try this and enjoy..................
