Instructions
Making Puff Pastry
  1. Melt Ghee/Butter in microwave and let it cool. Refrigerate it for 4 - 5 hours till its well firm again.
  2. Knead flour well with salt and water into a comparatively hard and smooth dough. Dont make it soft.
  3. Cover it and refrigerate it as well.
  4. Once the refrigeration period is over, roll out the dough into a rectangle shape. If your dough is smooth, you wont need any flour.
  5. Press the refrigerated ghee/butter in your hands to squeeze out any moisture. At this point, you have two options, either use the entire butter/ghee or divide it into 3 equal portions. Spread it all on dough or use 1/3rd of butter and spread it on dough (depending on the option you selected).
  6. Fold the rectangle into a smaller rectangle as shown in the following photos by placing ghee/butter between the folds
  7. Place it in a bowl, cover it and refrigerate it for 1 hour
  8. After 1 hour, roll it out again and make it into a smaller rectangle again using the instructions given above (using the left over butter if you chose to divide the butter), Refrigerate again for 1 hour.
  9. Repeat this process once or twice more. The more you repeat this process, the more folds you will get when the dough rises when baked. Fold it and refrigerate it overnight.
Making the Filling
  1. Cook chicken with 2 cups of water till 1 cup of stock is left
  2. Separate chicken from bones
  3. Heat butter with flour. And add chicken stock
