When I had made the Rough puff pastry sheets, I had also made mushroom puffs with them. Sharing the recipe now. To make these puffs, you can use homemade rough puff pastry sheets or store brought ones.

If using store brought ones, then follow the instructions as mentioned in the pack. You will need 300 grams puff pastry sheets.

If you want to make the puff pastry sheets at home, then you can check this easy method of making Rough puff pastry that I had posted some time back. I have also shared the recipe of making Veg Puff at home.

To make the mushroom puffs, I have used white button mushrooms. Though you can even use cremini, shiitake or portobello mushrooms.

These mushroom puffs can be served as a snack and can also be packed as a tiffin snack. You can serve them plain or with some sauce like tomato sauce or chilli sauce or even green chutney or mint chutney.

This recipe gives you around 8 to 10 mushroom puffy pastry. However, if you want to make a bigger batch then you can easily double or triple the prepared mushroom stuffing recipe.

Assembling and making mushroom puff pastry

18. Before you begin, making the mushroom puffs pastry, preheat your oven to 250 degrees celsius/480 degrees fahrenheit for at least 15 minutes.

I have used here Homemade rough puff pastry. Sprinkle some flour and gently roll the pastry a bit to even it.

If you used the puff pastry recipe, which I have posted on blog, then slice the puff pastry in three equal parts.

Take just one part and wrap the remaining two parts in a foil or cling film and refrigerate or freeze.

19. Sprinkle some flour on the dough and roll it evenly to get a ¼ to ½ inch thick base.

20. Now slice in rectangles. For a neater finish you can trim the edges if you want. The trimmed edges can be joined to make a dough or you can just roll them up in a spiral shape and bake with the mushroom puffs.

21. Place 2 to 3 tablespoons of the prepared mushroom stuffing in the center. Brush the edges with water.

22. Then join and lightly press the edges of each mushroom puff. Don’t press too much as we want the layers in them.

If you want you can even press lightly with a fork to give some design. Some milk can also be brushed on the mushroom puffs to get a golden color.

23. Now place the mushroom puff in the preheated oven in the center rack with both the top and bottom heating elements on. 

Bake mushroom puff pastry for 30 to 40 minutes at 250 degrees celsius/482 degrees fahrenheit. In my oven it took 40 minutes. The crust should become golden.

Since oven temperatures vary, keep a check while baking. If your oven does not have a temperature of 250 degrees celsius/482 degrees fahrenheit, then use the maximum temperature in your oven for both preheating and baking.

25. When the mushroom puffs have become golden, then remove them from the oven. Wait for 2 to 3 minutes and with a spatula (or with your hands if you can tolerate the heat) lift them and carefully place them on a wired baking tray.

26. Serve mushroom puffs warm or at room temperature with mint chutney or tomato ketchup or coriander chutney or any chutney of your choice.

If not serving, then once mushroom puff cools down, store them in an air-tight box or container.

They make for an excellent evening tea-time snack or party snack.

    1. rakshitha, you can bake these puffs in the convection mode of a microwave oven. use the maximum temperature in the oven. mostly microwave ovens have 200 degrees celsius, so you can use this temperature. timing will vary on your oven capacity and model. so there is no exact timing. bake till the crust is golden.

  1. It looks easy to make at first, but it requires patience and great effort. Though it is something I will definitely try!
