Jain Curried Puffs

Jain Curried Puffs

This snack brings back all the memories from movie theaters in India. We would get puffs along with popcorn and Thumbs up and we would go back to our seats and enjoy them during the movie intervals.
They turn out super light and flaky and it could be enjoyed any time during the day with chai or coffee. The curry leaf tadka adds an extra zing to these. I used frozen vegetables to make it quick.The filling can be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator for few days.
