EGG PUFFS

My hubbie always talks about Egg puffs from Vas Bakery, in Mangalore I thought I will try making them at home. Since the puff pastry is available ready made, it was not at all time consuming to prepare the filling and bake the puffs. A perfect evening snack with a hot cuppa! 😀

This is what you’ll need

Puff Pastry Packet: 1 (5000gms, block. I used Jus Rol)

Onions: 2

Eggs: 4

Ginger garlic paste: 1tsp

Green chillies: 3

Chilli powder: 1tsp

Coriander powder: ½tsp

Cumin powder: ½tsp

Garam Masala: 2tsp

Pepper powder: 1/2tsp

Curry leaves: Few

Tomato ketchup: 1tbsp

Salt to taste

Oil: 2tsp

Flour to dust the pastry when rolling.

Let’s get cooking

1. If frozen, the puff pastry must be thawed to room temperature before use. This takes around 3 to 4 hours.

2. Once thawed roll out into a flat sheet around half an inch in thickness, dusting with flour whenever needed. Keep aside.

3. Slice the onions and chop the green chillies finely.

4. Boil the eggs, remove the shell, cut into half and keep aside.

5. Heat the oil in a pan and add the curry leaves and onions. Saute until light brown.

6. Add the green chillies, ginger garlic paste and fry for 2 minutes.

7. Add the dry powders and the ketchup. Fry for another minute and the add the eggs.

8. Mix well, until the eggs are well coated.

9. Cut the puff pastry into 3″ squares. Place the egg in the middle along with in 2-3 spoonfuls of the mixture. Seal the edges, pressing them together. You can choose any style to put the filling in the pastry.

10. Continue with the remaining pastry sheets and place the puffs on a baking tray.

11. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until brown on top.

12. Serve hot with ketchup.

Approximate preparation and cooking time: 45 minutes.
