METHOD
PREPARING THE FILLING
  1. Assemble ingredients for the filling.
  2. Heat oil in a pan. Add chopped onions and broccoli. Saute until onions are translucent. If using fresh broccoli florets, cook that in oil first. When broccoli is tender, add onions and cook until onions are translucent.
  3. Mix in all the spices.
  4. Add salt.
  5. Pour in chili paste.
  6. And mix until well blended. Adjust seasonings and take it off the flame.
  7. Allow the mixture to cool completely. Add shredded cheese and mix well.
  8. Make sure the mixture is completely cooled before adding cheese or else it will turn into a gooey mess. Set it aside.
MAKING OF PUFFS
  1. Thaw pastry sheets. (see tips above)
  2. Unwrap and spread out the puff pastry sheet so that it is flat on the counter.
  3. Using a rolling pin, roll out the puff pastry sheet until it is bigger in size, smooth and even. If the sheet feels sticky, dust the top of the sheet with a little flour and start rolling.
  4. Preheat oven at 350 degree F. Using a pizza cutter, cut squares out of the puff pastry sheet.
  5. Take one square. Place the filling in the center.
  6. Apply water on the edges of the square. (see tips above)
  7. Fold the top corner over the filling. It will look like a triangle.
  8. Press the triangle gently to release any trapped air. Finally use a fork and crimp all the corners together.
  9. Repeat the process with rest of the triangles. Arrange triangles on a baking tray. These puff pastry puffs can be made in advance. Complete the process to this point, cover with foil or plastic wrap and refrigerate. When ready to bake….
  10. Brush with butter or egg wash and bake for 30 minutes or until the turnovers turn golden brown in color. Remember to turn them half way during baking.
  11. Other way would be to make round pies out of these pastry sheets. Cut rounds and stuff the sheets as shown above.
  12. Secure the edges.
  13. Brush with butter or egg wash and bake for 30 minutes or until the puffs turn golden brown in color. Remember to turn them half way during baking.
  14. Perfectly baked puffs.
  15. Allow the puffs to cool on the baking sheets for 4 to 5 minutes before transferring them on to plate.
  16. Some may stick to the sheet. No worries, carefully run a butter knife under and across the puffs and they will loosen.
  17. Serve with your favorite chutney or hot sauce and enjoy!
