Curry Veggie Rolls

I have got a bit addicted in making vegetarian meal as I believe it is a more healthy choice and I enjoy searching for different cooking methods to make a good combination of the ingredients.  I also like the mixed colour and the natural taste of vegetables.  My children are fooled by me as I stuffed in vegetables that are normally rejected by them in this veggie rolls.  I always encourage them to eat a little bit of the vegetable they don't like and gradually they will accept the taste and love the vegetable.  Due to the recent flood and cyclone we have in Australia,  the price for fruit and veggie has gone high.  This has made me more appreciate having fresh fruit and vegetable.  I have started a little veggie patch in my garden, hopefully I will get a good harvest soon.

Curry Veggie Rolls
make 12 rolls

3 sheets of puff pastry
1 cup potato, cut into 1 cm cube
1 cup sweet potato, cut into 1 cm cube
1/2 cup carrot, cut into 1 cm cube
1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup corn kernels
1/4 cup capsicum, finely chopped
1/4 cup celery, finely chopped
1/4 cup frozen baby peas
1/2 - 1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon garlic
1 teaspoon turmeric powder
1 tablespoon curry powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin seed
3 tablespoon corn flour
1 egg, beaten for brushing

  1. Preheat oven to 220c.
  2. Cook potato, sweet potato and carrot in a saucepan with hot water until they are cooked.  Mesh coarsely and set aside in a mixing bowl.
  3. Put the rest of the vegetable into the mixing bowl, then add in the seasoning and corn flour until they are well combined.
  4. Place a sheet of pastry onto the chopping board.  Do not peel away the plastic lining of the pastry as it will stick to the chopping board.  Cut the pastry into half horizontally and brush the top edge with some egg wash.
  5. Spoon some of the vegetable mixture along the bottom edge of the pastry.  Then roll it upward into a roll.  Use a knife to cut the long roll into 3 portions.  Score vertically 3-4 time lightly along each portion.  Discard the plastic lining.  Repeat this process to the other half of the pastry and the second sheet of pastry.
  6. Lay the rolls onto the baking tray with a line of baking paper.  Brush the rolls with egg wash and bake in a hot oven until they all puff up and golden brown.  Turn down the oven to 180c for another 5 minutes before taking them out.
