Modak puffs- with Cabbage curry and puff pastry sheets

I thought why can't we make modak shape curry puff and I also I wanted to try Cabbage filling in curry puff from many days. I already tried this recipe with phyllo dough sheets ( click Here for recipe), They came out very perfect. Now I'm trying with puff pastry sheets.

Potato---boiled and sliced 1cup( I used Baby potatos, unpeeled)
Cabbage finely chopped- 3cups

onions---1/2 and 1/2 cup
green chilies/ peppers---finely chopped---2ts

green peas (batani)--1/4cup
salt to taste
chat masala/ pudina
chutney powder (available in Indian Stores.)


  • Take pastry sheet out of the box and let it come down to room temperature.

  • Mean while prepare curry,

  • Take a pan heat 2ts of oil and add 1/2 cup of onions+ green chilies+ turmeric+green peas and fry until onions are half cooked

  • Now add Cabbage and Cook until the mixture is completely cooked under medium flame.

  • Add boiled and diced potato to this and mix well by adding salt to taste and chat masala or pudina/mint chutney powder to taste..

  • Now the curry is ready, add  remaining 1/2 cup onions to the curry and mix well.

  • Take the pastry dough unfold it and cut it in to 9squares,

  • Take a baking tray covered with aluminium foil and grease it with oil.

  • Mean while pre heat the oven at 350F.

  • Sprinkle the chat masala on each dough-let,Strech it with hands / roll it with roti maker / pizza roller.

  • Now add the curry on top of a cup and fold it just as you fold modak and bake for 10-15min at 350F.

  • Enjoy with green chutney or tomato sauce.

  • This is a perfect evening tea time snack, I'm sure you will love it :)

    IDLI batter became watery friends need your suggestions

    Morning while talking  to my hubby, I was adding water into over night fermented Idli batter, while talking I didn't realize how much water I'm adding. Few more water drops spoiled my whole batter. Consistency now is thin. I left it that way in refrigerator. I can make utappam but I want Idli, friends any ideas to repair it?

    How to make delicious soft bread buns with self rising flour?

    We can play with the bread bun recipe. Every one has their own version of making them. I had experimented with different kinds of recipes and came out with my own recipe which is perfect for making soft buns. These buns are perfect for making sandwich/tea time snack. I love self rising flour and its uses, I had already posted pan cakes and cake with self rising flour. It is very easy to use and yields very fruitful results.

    Dhokla with the readymade flour available in the market

    Dhokla is one of the dish I always wanted to try, this time I bought some ready made dokla flour form the "Patel brothers" one of the Indian grocery store in our near by area. The ingredients on the pack say that it contains besin (Gram flour) and rice flour. I was little confused, about the kind of ingredients that goes into the recipe. Later I did a little research and came up with my own recipe. It worked, dokla came out wonderfully. I never tasted dokla before, but now after making this yummy and healthy Indian flour cakes, I regret for not tasting them before. Form now dokla always stays in the weekly snack menu of our home.

    I feel so dumb sometimes, because I bought dokla flour but forgot the fact that I do not have dokla plates. If your case is same like me, give me "high-5"!! No problem you can use the idli plates instead. Problem solved!  Now coming to the recipe.

    Dokla flour- 1 cup
    Curd/ Yogurt-1/2cup
    Turmeric-1/4 t.s
    Chilli powder-1/4 t.…
