Easy Air Fryer Matar ki Patties ~ Savory Air Fryer Peas Puff Pastry Recipe

I have great memories of potato patties and coffee from the corner shop of the neighborhood. Potato Patties and Matar ki Kachori are 2 very popular high tea snack items of UP/Delhi region. At least from my memory of 20 years ago.

So what do you do when you are craving for both at the same time? You make Matar Patties or Spicy Green Peas Puff Pastry

Green Peas Stuffing or Matar ki Stuffing makes these patties really delicious. 

Since this savory puff pastry recipe is so easy to prepare, it is perfect for high tea, or anytime snack. If you make these small, then these are great as hors d’oeuvres.

Have you checked our other AIR FRYER RECIPES yet?

People often make the flaky delicate pastry at home. But I have taken a short cut and have used Store bought Puff Pastry Sheet.

Although puff pastry is preferred, you can use Phyllo Sheet as well.

What is a Puff Pastry?

Referencehere

Puff Pastry is a flaky pastry made from laminated dough composed of dough and butter. The butter is put inside the dough (or vice versa), making a paton which is repeatedly folded and rolled out before baking.

Gaps that form between the layers left by the fat melting are pushed (leavened) by the water turning into steam during the baking process.

Did you know that the first traces of modern Puff pastry are found in Spanish Cooking? And then later in French Cuisine.

These are very popular in India with various savory fillings, known as PATTIES. 

Matar ki Stuffing or Green Peas Stuffing

What is Green Peas Stuffing?

Although I make the stuffing with frozen green peas but you can use fresh peas instead as well.

The filling is an inspiration from a dish that my mom often made as a snack. 

She made this Matar ki Chaat (warm peas salad) as an after school snack in winters. The dish is packed with protein + fiber, delicious & is healthy.

I make this recipe using Curry Spices.

You can use just salt &  pepper or any other seasoning of your choice.

It is a basic simple recipe.

Green Peas Stuffing Prep

Complete recipe is in RECIPE CARD at the end of the post.

  • Make sure to use small green peas if using frozen or fresh peas. If you are using harder peas, then you have to cook it in the pan longer.
  • Heat oil in the Heavy bottom pan. Once it is hot, add black mustard seeds & splutter on medium high heat. Add onions & saute further with kitchen spatula.
  • Further add all the spices to it including coriander powder, turmeric powder, red chili powder, salt, & garam masala, except Dry mango powder. (If you are using curry powder, then add at this point instead of all the spices). Mix well.
  • Now add the frozen green peas & mix more. Add little water and stir. Cover & cook on medium heat till water is gone & the peas are soft. Further add dry mango powder & mix it in. Mash it coarsely with the back of the spoon. Stuffing is ready. Now cool it to the room temperature.
  • You can prepare it ahead of time like a day in advance as well & refrigerate. Use as needed. (see the notes)

Puff Pastry Dough Prep with Stuffing

  • If you are using frozen puff pastry, then make sure to thaw it accordingly and it is ready to be used.
  • Roll the sheet out. Measure and cut it out in 6-8 sqaures using Kitchen scissors. I cut it out in 6 equal squares.
  • Lay one square on working surface. Place 1&1/2 to 2 tbsp filling on one side of the square. Leave some space at the edges to seal. Fold the other half of the square over. Press the edges & corners down with fingers. Use a Fork and seal the edges from all the sides. (see video)
  • Now use either a pizza cutter or a sharp knife to cut off the uneven edges. Don’t cut too close the filling.
  • Mark 2 small slits at the top. Repeat the process for all the squares and set aside. Make sure to keep them on parchment paper so that it is easy to pick and work. These are ready to be air-fried.

Air Fry Savory Puffs / Air Fryer Matar Patties

  • Place the Air fryer parchment paper in the basket of the air fryer. Or use a butter paper. It will help avoiding the puffs sticking at the bottom.
  • Place 2-3 at a time depending upon the size of the air fryer. Set the temperature and timer. Air fry for few minutes. Take out. Brush with a little melted butter and air fry for few minutes for golden top.
  • For crispy base – after brushing with butter, remove the parchment paper and air fry further till golden.

Serving suggestion

These are served well with Green Cilantro Chutney and Ketchup.

Can I make these Peas Puffs in the oven?

Yes absolutely. Follow the instructions for the prep. And then bake in the oven for the given time as mentioned at the back of the puff pastry. The filling is already cooked so it does not need any cooking.

What kind of Pastry Sheets to use for this recipe?

  • I use Wewalka Puff Pastry Sheets. Since these are super easy to use, it makes the whole experience convenient. As it comes rolled in parchment paper, it is so easy to work with.You can find these in the aisle of the grocery store, next to all the other refrigerated doughs. (It is not a sponsored post).  My Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh, PA carries it. 
  • You may opt for phyllo sheets.
  • Crescent rolls dough can make a great substitute.
  • Or let your imagination work and make Peas Pies using ready to bake pie shell.

Adapt and go for the recipe.

Which other recipes can I make with this Matar stuffing?

This Stuffing is great to be used in your- paranthas, samosa, or kachori too. Or make grilled panini style sandwiches with it. I made some grilled sandwiches with it for breakfast today.

You may use some small pieces of potatoes or paneer or carrots to peas to make stuffing too.
