Pasta Puffs

If you have some left over pasta, maybe you could try this out. This is a kid friendly recipe, adults will enjoy it equally. Getting kids to eat proper healthy food is a herculean task! Everyday you need to prepare something different to entertain them :).

2 tbsp vinegar
1 onion, chopped
1 capsicum, chopped
1 tbsp ginger garlic paste
1 tbsp red chilly sauce
2 tbsp tomato ketchup
2 cup cooked pasta (Macaroni or  Fusilli) 
1 tsp chilly flakes
1 tsp Oregano
Salt to taste
2 cup all purpose flour (maida)


  • Heat oil in a pan and add ginger garlic paste. Add the onion and saute it.
  • Add the capsicum and stir well. Add salt to taste
  • Add oregano, chilly flakes, tomato ketchup, red chilly sauce, vinegar and mix well.
  • Add the cooked pasta and stir well. Cook covered for 5 mins and switch off the stove. Filling is ready.
  • In a bowl, mix the flour with oil and water.
  • Knead well to make a firm dough (similar to chapati consistency). 
  • Make small lemon sized balls out of the dough and roll it out like pooris
  • Place a spoon full of filling on one half of the rolled dough and fold along the center.
  • Seal the ends using a fork (I have used a puff cutter/gujia maker to make the puffs). 
  • Similarly, make puffs with the remaining dough too.
  • Heat oil in a pan for deep frying.
  • Fry the puffs in medium heat for 5 mins carefully turning both the sides until golden brown.
  • Serve warm with ketchup.
  • Skip the chilly sauce and chilly flakes if your kids don't like spicy puffs.
  • You could use lime juice instead of vinegar.
  • You could also add other veggies of your choice like carrot, peas, potato etc
