Cheesy Vegetable Puffs



There is a charm associated with the old… I don’t khow many of you agree with me on this but whenever I go to any historical places or any area which exudes a lot of nostalgia, I automatically get pulled into it. The place where I live in is surrounded by a lot of these Arabic windPin houses made of coral stone. The structure of these houses are such that when you stand inside them at any time of the day, you can feel a breeze and a cozy feel inside. The ventilation provided on the top ensures that there is sufficient air circulation inside the property. The climate of this area must have got people to making their homes like this at a time when the modern amenities of life weren’t there. In UAE, Sharjah has taken extra care to ensure that these buildings are maintained in its own charm so that history is not lost. I love the serenity feel that it gives when you stand close to it… and the mild breeze that comes along…


Today, I guess I will share a no-complication snack recipe, that I really love to make whenever I have puff pastry. I would always keep the cheese for the gooeyness but if you don’t like it, you can always avoid it. Couple it up with a cup of hot tea and it is a perfect snack for the cold wave of rain and winds over here…. yummy….

  10. One of the things I enjoy while traveling is to admire how history and old buildings are preserved. Its such a feeling looking and admiring. I wish I can be around for hours and admire but we have to leave and move on to other places.

    Glad that you shared a recipe with puff pastries. I don't find it trilling to make them and its ready made ones I use too. I can imagine the taste with the cheese oozing out. Shall try and must try, quite simple to make too.
