Spinach & Feta Cheese Puffs


         Again this is another dish that I had made before leaving to India. I had a box of feta cheese and a sheet of puff pastry that I had to finish up, since my daughter is a big fan of puffs ( which is nothing but puff pastry with some filling), I made this. It's a simple recipe, very easy to put together, but nevertheless very tasty and a perfect appetizer or starter..

Need To Have

  • Puff Pastry - 1 sheet
  • Onions - 2
  • Chopped Spinach - 1 cup
  • Potato - 1
  • Feta Cheese - 2 oz
  • Red Chilly Flakes - 1/2 teaspoon



Method
          Thaw the puff pastry sheet and boil the potato. Heat some oil, add the chopped onions, saute till transparent, then add the chopped spinach and the chilly flakes. Keep sauteing till the spinach wilts and the water dries up. Peel and mash the potatoes slightly, add it to the spinach, mix well. Now remove from heat, add the feta cheese, check the salt and spice level, cool it completely. Preheat the oven to 400F. Now, dust some flour and spread out the puffy pastry sheet, using a rolling pin, roll it out a little. Cut it out into 20 little squares, place the filling on one side of the square and fold the other side over it (it will be in the shape of small rectangles). Arrange them on a baking pan, leaving a little space in between and bake them for 15 minutes. Serve them warm with some tomato sauce.
