  • 6 Puff pastry squares

Mushroom filling


To Make the Stuffing

  • Heat olive oil in a pan. Add sliced onions and fry for about 2-3 minutes till slightly golden. Add the chopped mushroom and add spices and salt.
  • Cook it down till everything is nicely sautéed and no moisture remains. Don’t use too many seasonings as mushrooms and sautéed onions taste great by themselves. You could only use only salt and pepper if you like.
  • Now take the stuffing and cool it down for about 10 minutes.
  • Now take puff pastry squares and spread out the stuffing on each square. Fold over along the diagonal to form a triangular stuffed pocket.
  • Seal the ends using some milk/plant milk. Then take a fork and press down the edges to nicely seal them.

In air fryer

  • Preheat air fryer at 390F or 200C for 4 minutes. Lightly brush the basket with oil. Then lay the mushroom puffs after brushing with some oil or egg white. This helps in making the puffs golden brown.
  • Air fry for about 8-10 minutes till the puffs are nicely browned and cooked. You may flip the puffs midway or at around 5 minutes.

In the oven

  • Preheat your oven to 400F. Lay the pastry puffs on a parchment paper lining the baking tray. Bake for about 15 minutes or till the puffs are nicely browned.
  • Take them out and serve them hot with ketchup or a dip of choice. Enjoy!


1. Puff pastry sheets must be thawed before using. You can then lightly roll them out using a rolling pin if needed. I generally use the puff pastry squares as is.
2. Make sure that you cook out any moisture in the mushroom filling or it will make your puffs soggy. Then cool down the filling before stuffing.
3. You can use a bit of milk/plant milk or egg white to seal the pockets.
Air fry till browned outside.
4. If your puff pastry cracks a bit after putting in the filling then do use other bits to quickly repair the tears. I did that to a couple.
