    Can you make these ahead and freeze for parties?

    • Molly Kumar October 14, 2019 (7:26 pm)

      Hello Manisha, yes you can freeze them for a week. Please cover the uncooked patties using cling wrap or freeze on baking tray, once frozen, place them in a zip lock bag. Just thaw on baking tray and bake on the day you want to serve. Thanks, Molly

  • James January 19, 2019 (11:47 pm)

    We have made this recipe so many times and turns out amazing every single time! Making it again for tomorrow’s game.

    • Molly Kumar January 19, 2019 (11:59 pm)

      Hi James, thanks soooo much for making this a part of your gameday celebrations and for trying it again n again 🙂 Molly

  • Alex January 19, 2019 (7:48 pm)

    I have dry ground coriander seed….can this be used instead of fresh coriander?
    Can fresh cilantro be used instead of fresh coriander?
    No fresh coriander where I live

    • Molly Kumar January 19, 2019 (11:25 pm)

      Hi Alex, glad you are going to try the recipe and yes, you can use Fresh Cilantro instead of coriander. Also, the ‘Dry Mango’ is optional (for adding lil bit of tart/tangy flavor). Thanks, Molly

  • Angela September 1, 2017 (8:47 pm)

    Do you have to roll out the dough or do you use it as is? How big should the squares be?

    • Molly Kumar September 3, 2017 (7:42 am)

      Hi Angela, you can roll out the dough a little but not much as you want it slightly thick (1/4 inch thick). I made about 9 puffs with each sheet, so you can cut it as per choice (big or small size).

    I love all things curry. Paired with pastry… a total win-win!

    • Molly Kumar October 16, 2016 (6:17 am)

      Seriously, the combination of Curry+Pastry = lot of goodies 😉

  • Just Jo October 8, 2016 (11:18 am)

    Oh YES! I love this idea Molly – I always have some of my homemade puff pastry in the freezer and I am a freak for all things Indian so these have to be made very soon. In fact, they would clear our the remains of my veg drawer very nicely 😀

    • Molly Kumar October 16, 2016 (6:07 am)

      That would be awesome and I’m happy you’re gonna try them soon 🙂

  • Coco in the Kitchen October 5, 2016 (4:43 pm)
