2.  Thaw the puff pastry sheets as instructed in the package. Each packet has 2 puff pastry sheets. You can make 6 puffs from each sheet. Cut the puff pastry sheet into desired shapes. Put 1 – 2 tbsp paneer masala on each pastry. Seal the puffs using your fingers or press the edges using a fork. Arrange the prepared puffs on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper/ aluminium foil greased with oil. Brush the top of the stuffed puff pastries with melted butter. Preheat the oven to 400 F and bake for 15 – 20 minutes or until the puffs turns golden brown on top. Serve warm with ketchup.
