    • Welcome Prachi. Glad to know that you liked this vegetable puff recipe.

  2. in otg it is made on both heating on or only 1 side heating on

    • both top and bottom heating elements are on in OTG.

  3. Hello Mam i tried today but it was too hard on top and was not at all like urs crispy wat would be the reason?where i went wrong plz correct me..

    • khanita, did you use store brought puff pastry or homemade. if you have used homemade puff pastry, then if the butter melts while mixing and kneading the dough, then the pastry will become dense or hard. the butter has to be in solid form and should not melt while mixing, kneading, rolling and forming the pastry dough.
