Rinse, peel and chop 2 medium potatoes, 1 medium carrot in small cubes.
You will need about 1/2 cup chopped potatoes, 1/3 to 1/2 cup chopped carrots. Take them in a small pan or bowl. Also add 1/3 cup green peas.
Now place this pan in a pressure cooker. Before placing the pan in pressure cooker, add 1.5 cups water in the cooker.
Pressure cook for 3 to 4 whistles or 8 to 9 minutes or till the veggies are steamed well.
When the pressure settles down, open the lid and check if the veggies are cooked well or not.
You can also steam or cook the veggies in a pot or pan or a steamer. Strain the veggies and keep aside.

rolling and stuffing veg puff
Before you begin, making the veg puffs, preheat your oven to 250 degrees celsius/480 degrees fahrenheit for at least 15 minutes.
Follow the instructions on the puff pastry packet to defrost or thaw it.
Sprinkle some flour on the dough and roll it evenly to get a 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick base.
Now slice in rectangles. For a neater finish you can trim the edges if you want.
Place 2 to 3 tablespoons of the stuffing in center.
Brush the edges with water.
Then join and lightly press the edges of each 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 puffs to get a golden color.
baking veg puff
Now place the veg puffs in the preheated oven in the center rack with both the top and bottom heating elements on.
Bake veg puffs for 30 to 40 minutes at 250 degrees celsius. In my oven it took 40 minutes.
The crust should become golden. Since oven temperatures vary, keep a check while baking.
Wait for 2 to 3 minutes and with a spatula lift veg puff and place on wired baking tray.
Serve veg puff warm or at room temperature with green chutney or tomato ketchup. if not serving, then once they cool down, store the curry puff in an air tight box or container.
