Indian Chicken Puffs Recipe - Bakery Style

My long time mission came to an end, i successfully made puffs. Look at the pictures it looks promising right. I have made puff pastry before but it was a complete failure and a butter was leaking all the place and it was a complete mess. From that day onwards i stayed away from puff pastry for a while. But after watching so many videos and referring so many website, i got a little confident. But when many of my viewers requested me to post this, i got the complete confidence and got into action. I made a traditional puff pastry before and also made a pastry which takes just 15 mins to make..
