Veg Puff...I Never get bored of these beauties & the hubby's fav. appetizer too.. I can still remember the college times.. during lunch break this used to be our favorite  snacks. In India we get veg puffs in most of the bakeries, the smell of fresh hot veg puffs  is absolutely tempting.
As now I m staying in US we can't get these freshly baked puffs in bakeries but the puff pastry sheets are easily available in all grocery store.
