I have lot of memories associated with Vegetable Puffs. My dad used to get this for me every Friday from Iyengar bakery at Tambaram.I like both the sweet and savoury version. It is also common in all college canteens and office cafeteria. Whenever I skip my breakfast, first thing I will do is to get a veg puffs from the cafetaria( Please don't follow this. It is not healthy to skip breakfast and have this first thing the morning!).

Nowadays I make this puffs often using ready made pepperidge puff pastry sheet. It will be usually available in the frozen section.
