Chicken and Egg puff
Puff the name itself tells us.......It is puffed up,fluffy and flacky.It is the basic thing to make with various stuffings.A vegetarian,Non-vegetarian or even sweet.It is so crispy and flaky by the way it is prepared.Needs more attention and patience to make this pastry.I tried it for 3 or more times but got it right only now.........
If we try it with patience and creative mind we get a good outcome.The needed ingredients are so simple,It can be tried by everyone who loves to make different dishes.Make the puff dough and its rolling on oneday and the filling and baking on other day.It will give you more time to make it prefect.I like to thank Swathi from zesty kitchen and sangeetha priya......
Ice cold water-1/4 cup (adjust to consistency of the dough)
Place butter in a plate with butter paper shape them to a rectangle,you can shape them when they are soft.cover them and place in fridge for 20-30 mins till firm.
In a bowl add maida,salt and add cold water,knead a firm dough.Knead well till it becomes soft and pliable.Wrap it with a cling film and keep in fridge for 20 mins.
Now remove butter from fridge and place them outside for 10 mins.Knead the dough dusting with maida flour into a rectangle.The dough should be bigger than the rectangled butter.
Place butter in center of the dough,close the sides well.Butter should be covered well with the dough.Dust them and roll into a long rectangle.Shape three times bigger and fold one edge into the centre and then cover with other edge.The fold should be three layers.Then turn the dough and knead again to a long rectangle.Don't worry when the butter comes out.Just dust them and roll.Fold again in three quaters and roll again.Do it for 3 times wrap them with clingfilm and place them in fridge for 20 mins.Now again remove from fridge dust them roll and fold then dust roll and fold for 3 times and cover,,refrigerate again for 20 mins.Repeat the process for 3-4 times and cover them well and refrigerate till use.......................
