While growing up in Kerala, dad used to bring this vegetable Hand pie or Vegetable puffs ( as we call them) from a nearby bakery. We (me and my sister) loved it very much and often little fights will break out between us as who will get how many.

I usually make a filling of the vegetables which can also be used for vegetable cutlets too. I made my vegetable puffs like this way :
