Aloo puff recipe, Potato puffs recipe

Potato puffs/ Aloo puff is a popular Indian snack prepared by filling puff pastry sheets with spicy mashed potato mixture and baked to perfection. I never knew that there was something called aloo puffs until last year when I noticed in a café. We all/ I am used to typical veg puffs/ egg puffs/ chicken puffs but puffs with all time favorite veggie potato was a must try I thought and wished to taste it and it was super yum. Since it is lockdown and the climate was super cold last week thought to bake these puffs with potato filling as I don’t like making/ having much of fried food. I made the filling according to what I felt was there in the shop’s puffs, wont say it was same but close to its taste and was surely delish. So I had some leftover puff pastry sheets at home after making veg puffs so made use of those to make these potato puffs. In this recipe I have used very less quantity of ginger garlic paste as I dint want its flavors to be dominating in the puffs. So if you like puffs/ a great fan of aloo/ potato do try your hands on this recipe and let me know your feedback! So let’s get to the making!
