Spiced Tuna Vegetable Filling
To make the filling, heat up a little oil and sauté onions until soft . Next up, quickly stir fry ginger paste and garlic paste. When done, it’s time for the spices – ground turmeric, ground coriander, garam masala and red chili powder – to get a quick stir fry in the oil. Now, cook all the veggies until they are tender. Sprinkle over a little water if the mixture becomes too dry. Add the tuna and aromatic coriander (cilantro) leaves, and stir fry for few minutes. Allow this mixture to cool completely before you fill this mixture in the puff pastry.
How to Make Tuna Puffs
Cut thawed puff pastry into rectangles, fill with tuna mixture, brush with egg wash, and bake until golden and flaky. I’ve used ready-rolled puff pastry in this recipe, but some pastries need to be rolled out before you add the filling.
Perfectly delicious with your afternoon tea!
