Egg Puffs

Puffs is one of the favourite evening snack for every body. I remember, whenever we felt like eating one, our dad used to bring us hot puffs from a local bakery. I miss that especially during winter season.. So, whenever we crave for them I make veggie puffs, using different vegetables all the time. My hubby dear was having a flash back of old days... He was remembering how he and his friend, on their pay day, after finishing work, both used to have hot egg puffs near Domlur bus stand and then part their ways to their homes. This was the reason for making the egg puffs. I have included methi leaves and green pepper to it. It came out wonderful and hubby loved it told me that it tasted like the one he used to eat. Nothing is better than hot puffs for winter..

Egg Puffs are off to the Bookmarked Recipe Event hosted by Ruth. This tempting snack is also off to Winter Treat Event hosted by Trupti.

Ingredients: Puff Pastry Eggs - 2 Onions - 1 Tomato - 1 Ginger Paste - 1/2 tsp Garlic Paste - 1/2 tsp Methi Leaves - 1/4 cup (Optional) Green Bell Pepper - 1 Chili Powder - 1/2 tsp Coriander Powder - 1/4 tsp Garam Masala - 1/2 tsp Turmeric Powder - 1/4 tsp Salt Oil - 1 Tb spoon Method:

  • Preheat oven to 400 degree.
  • Boil eggs, cut them into halves and keep aside.
  • Heat oil in a non stick pan, add onions and fry till golden brown.
  • Then add methi leaves, fry for a min and then add tomatoes pieces.
  • Add ginger and garlic paste and fry till oil leaves.
  • Then add all powders to it and at last add green pepper, salt and fry till soft.
  • Add egg halves into the masala and cover the eggs with it so that the eggs will soak the masala.
  • Allow the masala to cool.
  • Take one pastry sheet and cut them into 4 equal parts.
  • Take one part of pastry sheet, put one spoon of the masala at the bottom and then place one half of the egg along with some masala on top.
  • Then apply water on four sides of the pastry sheet so that it will hold together.
  • Fold all four corners together as shown below.

  • Repeat the procedures for the other halves of the eggs.
  • Bake them in the oven for 20 minutes or till golden brown.

  • Serve hot along with a cup of hot tea.

PS: Methi and green pepper is optional for this egg puff. If you are doing a veggi puff, you can follow the same procedure, just add vegetables of your choice.
