Chicken Turnover

Ramadan is almost over! Feeling very sad to bid adieu this holy month! Time is flying isn’t it?? Hope you all had a peaceful and well spend Ramadan! So stepping to my 2nd last recipe for this Ramadan! This time I missed MFB challenge due to lack of time! I badly wanna participate but bad luck, I couldn’t manage. My Eid Dessert recipe is on its way, stay tuned!

So coming back to today’s recipe, its a spicy Kerala twist to the turnovers. Turnovers are a simple appetizer made with puff pastry! Here I made the filling with a spicy green pepper twist. it’s so simple to prepare the filling. Spicy food lovers will cherish this for sure.

When that beautiful green pepper pearls caught my attention I really couldn’t stop from grabbing it. I already started to imagine about that spicy gravies and fillings i could prepare! Unfortunately, I couldn’t click that lip-smacking gravy, but here I’m sharing this crispy puff pastry filled with delicious green pepper’s ok if you don’t have green peppers with you u can use regular black pepper or green chillies. This filling is totally Kerala based addition,  so those who don’t like cheesy, saucy filling a big shout out for you all!
