Paratha Puffs

Have you ever try baking with the frozen Paratha? If not, you should because it is really easy. I find it much tastier than puff pastry and less fat. I hardly use puff pastries because of the amount of butter in it. This little puff is really good for afternoon tea , party food or snack for children. Is really easy to make. Do give it a try.

This is what I used 'Kawan' brand 'roti canai'
Cut the paratha bread into 3. Put the filling in the middle of the pastry and closed up the edges. The use a fork to press down the edges. For the filling I used leftover roast chicken, onions, garlic and green peas. For seasoning I used BBQ sauce, paprika, chili powder, salt and pepper

Brush the puffs with egg and bake in a pre-heated 350 degree F until golden brown.

Serve it with a cup of coffee or tea.

Note : You can used any kind of filling for this puffs. It can curry puff filling, char siew filling or even tuna and sardin filling. Make sure you dust the counter and your fingers with some flour before handling the pastries because it can get quite sticky.

Gert,
Is this the same pastry that you made curry puff with?
I tried to find it in the frozen section a few time but to no avail.
Tension betul... I have a big can of sardin and ready to bake some...
