Recipe: Aloo Puffs

Filling puff pastry with a quick, almost mashed potato like version of Dum Aloo makes these puffs a delicious alternative to heavier meat pies. In the future I would probably serve these with a hot sauce to go on top too because I found them just a touch dry but really delicious.
