I had been eyeballing this recipe on Heidi’s site for several days before I finally decided to try it. It is actually a Bryan Terry recipe that Heidi featured on her site. For the full recipe, click here.
This recipe uses classic jamaican inspired flavors- coconut milk, thyme, cayenne, cumin. I gave my puffs an indian inspired twist by mixing in turmeric and curry powder as well. When the spices started to cook in with the veggies, the kitchen was filled with intense, aromatic smells that were heavenly! I changed the recipe just a bit because I wasn’t up for making the pastry myself so I used frozen philo dough from the grocery store (which is why I called my version “puffs” instead of “patties”). It made the recipe even easier and it tasted delicious!
I served the puffs over basmati rice and topped it with a drizzle of homemade sauce (coconut milk, cumin, curry, turmeric and cayenne simmered on the stovetop). Then, I paired the meal with a Jamaican Red Stripe beer! yum!
