Vegetable Puff

Check out this from one of my snack lists. It came out awesome. This you will get it in a Bakery especially in India. This is a very popular evening snack. Its healthy & as well as heavy. When i was making this i remembered my childhood days when we used to go out to bakeries to eat this. Everyday we need some snack in the evening. Thought to try it. My son loved it a lot. Its Crispy and a with mixture of potato & mixed veggies.
