Spicy crisp Chicken puffs with mixed vegetables.


Ingredients:
Pastry Sheet - 1
Chicken - about 1 cup
Onion - 1 medium
Mixed Veggies - about 1 cup
Coriander/Cilantro Leaves - few sprigs
Lime/Lemon Juice - 2 tbsp
Garlic - 4 big cloves
Coriander Powder - 1 tsp
Cumin Powder - 1 tsp
Kabab Masala or any spice mix - 1/2 tsp
Cayenne Pepper/Red Chilli Powder - 1/2 tsp
Green Chilli Paste - 1/2 tsp
Black Pepper Powder - 1/4 tsp
Turmeric - 1/4 tsp
Salt
Oil

How to bake Chicken and Veggie Puffs:
1. Thaw the pastry sheet as per instructions or for about 45 minutes.
2. Dice chicken into bite size pieces.  In a mixing bowl, add lemon juice, coriander powder, cumin powder, kabab masala, cayenne pepper and little salt.  Mix all the ingredients well and add diced chicken.  Let the chicken marinate for about 2 hours or more.
3. Preheat the oven at 375 degrees F.  Bake the marinated chicken for 7 - 8 minutes.  Flip the chicken and cook for another 7 - 8 minutes or till chicken is cooked.  Alternatively, you can cook chicken in a pan on a stove top as well.  After the cooked chicken cools, dice it into smaller pieces.
4. Finely chop onions, peeled garlic and coriander leaves.  Finely chop the veggies of your choice - cabbage, green beans, capsicum/bell peppers and carrots.  You can add green peas, lima beans as well.
5. Heat about 1 tbsp oil in a pan.  Add onions, garlic, black pepper powder and salt.  Saute till onions turn soft.  Now add onions and saute at low flame till veggies are cooked.  Turn off the heat when the veggie stuffing turns dry. Add cooked chicken and cilantro.  Mix all the ingredients well and let the stuffing cool.
6. Cut the pastry sheet into 6 equal parts or as you desire.  Place the stuffing on all the 6 parts in the center and seal the edges with few drops of milk or water.  Brush the top of the stuffed pastries with egg wash or milk.
7. Preheat the oven at 400 degrees F.  Grease a baking dish with cooking spray or oil.  Place the stuffed pastries on the baking dish and bake for 25 - 30 minutes.  Enjoy crisp Chicken Puffs with ketchup.
