Indian Chicken Puff Pastry Recipes are one of the most popular Indian food dishes, especially during festivals like Diwali and Christmas. The puff pastry is made from wheat flour (usually Maida), butter, sugar, and milk.
It is a family favorite in India that can be enjoyed year-round with all your favorite toppings, traditionally curd or Mirchi ka achar (a green chutney).
Puff pastry also can be baked, fried, and filled with a wide variety of savory or sweet fillings and is great for parties.
It’s a versatile dough that can make different types of pastries- savory, sweet, or plain. Because it’s a thin dough that is delicate and easy to work with, puff pastry is also perfect for children.
It is an excellent base for making savory Indian snacks like samosas, pakoras, or thalis. Dipping the flat dough in spicy sauces or adding veggies to its surface makes it the best Indian appetizer.
The popularity of Indian Puff Pastry recipes is all over India. In Southern India, a common variation is to spread the pastries with a fiery red chutney made with boiled and crushed tomatoes, onions, and red chili peppers.
Adjacent to Maharashtra, Puff Pastry recipes are also popular in Gujarat, which adds mashed cilantro/coriander leaves while kneading the dough. One of my favorite Indian Puff Pastry Recipes is from Punjab.
