Chicken Puffs recipe or the Chicken Puff Pastry, Indian Style a must try snack which will make you nostalgic with the puffs that you used eat from the bakery near your home.
Whether it is veg, chicken or mutton, everyone must have tasted the puffs at least once from your nearby bakery.
While making the samosas and other snacks was easy, but the baking food was out of scope as we didn’t have an oven while growing up. I think in those days, it was pretty common not to own an oven in India as much strange as it sounds now.
So it was but natural that we would always have to rely on bakery bought chicken puff pastry Indian Style, to satisfy our cravings. (Provided the bakery served halaal meat, otherwise we would stick to the veg puffs).
Now with all the ready made puff pastries available, even in India now, there is no excuse that we can skip this easy to make chicken puffs recipe.
With the store bought puff pastry sheet, all you have to do is make a chicken filling of your choice and turn it into an awesome chicken puffs recipe in Indian Style
You can find the puff pastries in the frozen section of the supermarkets in India. You can even add some veggies along with chicken to get an even better taste.
I like to add peas sometimes, as my youngest kiddo loves the peas. The taste is really awesome when you add in the veggies.
However today I just decided to stick to the original chicken puff recipe and not add any veggie and confuse you all.
Just remember you can tweak it according to your family’s preferences.
There is no one way of making any dish. Each family has it’s own unique taste buds and we can make them accordingly. Just remember to follow through the basic steps. Every region of India has it’s own unique taste and spices.
I love the piping hot chicken puffs recipe right out of the oven. It is really fun making the chicken puff pastry or for that matter any kind of puffs, as you can experiment with the filling and make it into fun shapes every time.
Let me know in comments, what is your most preferred filling for the puffs?
