    Dear Meenakshi,
    here is the recipe for puffs.
    Ingredients-
    Maida-1/2 kg
    salt-1 1/2 tsp
    fat -50 gms (3 tbsp)
    ice cold water - 225 ml.
    fat (margerine) -1/2 the weight of the dough
    Method
    Mix the maida with 50 gm of fat. Add salt and ice cold water and make a soft but not sticky dough. Kep covered in the fridge for 15-20 minutes. Weigh the dough and take 1/2 its weight of cold margerine. The fat shoudl be pliable but not too soft.
    The dough will be ball like. Make a cross cut on the dough, slowly peel out the 4 petal-like from the ball and roll out to make a star like shape. Place the fat in the center and cover with the 4 extended strips. Place it covered in fridge for 15 minutes.
    Take out and roll out into a 1/4 inch thick rectangle shape. Do not roll with pressure. Now fold the rectangle in three. Turn it and roll out into rectangle again. Now cover and refrigerate for 15 minutes. Repeat this process for 5 times, resting in the fridge for 15 minutes in between.
    Now, take out and roll out again into rectangle shape, thick sheet. Cut into two strips. Now divide this strips into smaller rectangles, place a little filling in center on one side. Now fold over to the base nd stick with water and press with finger lightly to seal. The sides should be open. Again rest in fridge for half an hour. Brush te top of the puff with beaten egg before putting inside the oven.
    Preheat oven to 220 degrees and bake it straight from the fridge. After 15 minutes reduce heat to 180 degree and bake again for 10 to 15 minutes or till brown and crisp. It would have risen well.
    The filling can be anything you prefer. I hope this had been helpful.
    I learnt it in a class but find it very tedious.

    AVIYAL.

    Ingrediants :

    potato - 1
    carrots - 4 to 5
    beans - 5 to 6
    drumstick - 4 to 5
    chow chow - 1
    peas - 1 cup
    pumpkin - 4 to 5 cut pieces
    arvi (seppangazhangu) - 2 to 3

    grated coconut - 1 cup
    green chillies - 4
    cumin seeds - 1 spoon for grinding and 1 spoon for seasoning
    rice - 1 spoon
    curd - 1 small cup
    coconut oil - 2 spoons
    curry leaves
    coriander leaves
    salt

    note : if u add arvi, the aviyal consistency will be slightly mucilageous. if u dont like that u can avoid arvi.

    Ppn:

    cutting vegetables for aviyal is also different. cut carrot slightly bigger like a stick (somewhat like match stick), peas also slightly bigger than we cut for regular curry, potato, a big dice shaped, pumpkin dice shaped.

    cook all the vegetables with salt.

    meanwhile, grind grated coconut,rice,green chillies and cumin seeds and mix them with curd.

    once the vegetables are cooked add the ground mixture and add coriander leaves and season it finally.

    for seasoning, heat coconut oil, splutter mustard and add curry leaves, cumin seeds and if neeeded urad dhal - 1 spoon can also be added.

    this aviyal can be had with rice or its very special with adai...:)
