Cheesy Chickpeas Puff - #MonsoonMojo

We usually make puffs with different fillings, i have already tried from sweet to savoury version with various interesting fillings. But this time, i couldnt resist to give a try with an another interesting filling which i simply prepared with a spicy chickpeas masala. Puff with chickpeas masala sounds bit different na, but trust me they came out extremely delicious and you cant just stop with one puff. Once again the filling i went for this puff is seriously an easy one. No chopping, no sauting for hours, just some mashed chickpeas with simple spices is quite enough to finish the chickpeas filling. Since i had some grated cheese in my fridge, i topped the chickpeas masala with those grated cheese while filling the puffs. Those melted cheese gives an excellent texture to this already very flaky puff.Sending to Kalyani's Monsoon Mojo Event..

Served along with a cup of tea or coffee, these cheesy chickpeas puff makes an excellent evening snacks. If you love chickpeas like me, these puffs are definitely a feast for us. I loved this puffs very much and couldnt stop munching them. These puffs are dangerously addictive and once they comes out the oven, none resist to the wonderful aroma of this puffs. They just gets vanished very much quickly than you can imagine. Give a try to this protein rich filling next time if you are planning to bake some puffs at home. These flaky puffs are going to be a part of this week's blogging marathon as am running with special theme which is called Moderator's choice, and i picked chickpeas from the list given by Valli.
