Time is running its own marathon without leaving for us a trace, along the way we are quite busy in our life-chores that we haven't got any time to realise the fact about where life has brought us in those few years. Tell you what, I wanna be a kid again, whose only satisfaction lied in buying toffee, biscuits, chips.. playing with kids and fighting with them until she didn't win.. I can bet that phase of time was kind of amazing. The only things I worried about was my pocket-money and exams. There's no such things now. Time has changed so much that even I can’t believe it myself.

Following by my childhood memories, I remember those days from hyd city.. when I used to buy Patties from a shop near my home after school or even after tuition classes, along with my siblings. In those days fluffy and delicate Patties were full of crispy pastry layers and stuffed with delicious mashed potato goodness in it. I didn't have those Patties for what it seem like ages, because Karachi haven't that Patties available, you can find other variation of patties here but that hyd one cannot be compared with them, seriously.
So, when mom bought the ready-made puff pastry dough, I couldn't think of any other thing to make with it, except that my favourite Patties. I wasn't sure that it turned out exactly the one I used to have in hyd. The result was amazing.. tenderly, crispy yet buttery layers - trick is to use absolutely fresh dough in the process of making this baby. As such, there's always the homemade solution available. You can make your own puff pastry dough too. In case you do I suggest you to check Aiza's recipe. It look quite easy and crispy.
