How to make Paneer And Spinach Puff Recipe

  1. To begin making the Paneer And Spinach Puff Recipe, first prep all the ingredients for the puff and keep aside.

  2. To make the puff crust, combine the salt, flour and butter and knead with your fingers until you get a coarse crumb like mixture.

  3. Add a few tablespoons of cold water at a time and make a smooth and yet firm dough. Knead well and wrap in a cling film and refrigerate for a couple of hours.

  4. While the puff pastry is refrigerating, we will prepare the spinach and paneer filling.

  5. Heat oil in a wok, add the garlic and saute for a few seconds. Add the chopped spinach and stir fry until all the moisture is evaporated.

  6. Once the moisture is evaporated, add the paneer and the remaining filling ingredients. Saute until all are well combined. Check the taste and adjust seasonings accordingly.

  7. Preheat the oven to 180 C. Grease the muffin pans with butter and keep aside.

  8. Place the chilled puff dough on a flat surface. Dust flour on the surface and roll the rough into a large square. Cut large square pieces of the dough and place each square into the muffin cavity.

  9. Spoon the spinach and paneer filling into the cavity and bring the edges of the puff together and pinch to seal.

  10. Place the Spinach and Paneer puff in the oven and bake until golden brown and crisp. Once done, remove from the oven and serve warm.

  11. Serve the Paneer and Spinach Puff as a tea time snack along with a cup of Adrak Chai.
