Heidi notes: If you have the time make a double batch of these, they freeze really well - a month or two double bagged. Bake straight from the freezer. You can get paneer at an increasing number of places now - at most Indian grocers, and some cheese shops. If you can't track down the paneer, no problem. You can make these dumplings with ricotta, crumbled tofu, or queso fresco. Vegans, go the tofu route, and seal the wrappers with water in place of the egg white. Monica suggests baking these (see photo), but also mentions they can be fried.

Recipe Ingredients for Monica Bhide's Chile Pea Puffs

1 cup cooked green peas, lightly mashed
1/4 cup crumbled paneer cheese
2 serrano peppers
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
32 wonton wrappers
1 egg white, lightly beaten

Recipe Directions for Monica Bhide's Chile Pea Puffs

  1. Preheat oven to 400F degrees. Lightly grease a baking sheet with cooking spray (HS note: or line with parchment paper).

  2. In a bowl combine the peas, paneer, green chiles, salt, chile powder, and garlic. Mix well.

  3. Place one teaspoon of the mixture into a center of a wonton wrapper. Lightly brush the sides og the wrapper with the egg white. Fold the wrapper over to form a triangle, or if you are using round wrappers, fold to form a half-moon. Press the edges with a fork, gently to secure the seam so the filling does not fall out. (HS note: I rolled them into mini-spring-roll shapes - see photo)

  4. Place the puffs in a single layer on the baking sheet. Spray them lightly with cooking spray (HS note: or brush with a bit of olive oil). Cook for 7 to 8 minutes or until they are crisp and the skin changes to a lovely golden brown. Turn once, halfway through baking. Serve immediately with your choice of chutney.

  5. Makes 32 puffs.
