Chicken Puffs


Spicy chicken puffs is a favorite tea time snack with my family..when I say spicy it is the really spicy peppery chicken puffs with hot piping tea.  This crunchy munchy tea time snack is perfect for every occasion. Puffs can be made with several types of filling. But my most favorite is this chicken filled pastry. I was so happy to find a pack of ready to roll puff pasty sheet at our local grocery store. I was really missing the spicy yummy puffs sold at the corner bakery near my home in Kerala. The aroma of the fresh baked puffs would fill the surroundings and many times we felt that he purposely baked them in the evenings when we children were coming back from school  hungry :)
