Ingredients

  • Puff Sheet – 1 no.
  • Hard boiled eggs – 3
  • Red Onion – 2 large (approx 100 grams)
  • Aamchur – 1 tsp (optional)
  • Garam Masala – ½ tsp
  • Chicken Masala – ½ tsp
  • Salt – to taste
  • Oil – 1 tsp
  • Butter – 1 tsp
  • Coriander leaves – 5 sprigs
  • Egg – 1 (for Egg wash)
  • How to Make Egg Puffs:

    1. Heat oil and butter in a non-stick pan.
    2. Add onions and salt, sauté till it becomes translucent, about 4 minutes.
    3. Add garam masala and chicken masala, sauté for 1 min, till the raw flavour leaves.
    4. Spread the puff sheet on a flour dusted, flat surface and divide into 8 pieces.
    5. Spread sautéed onion and coriander leaves (leaving a couple blank for kids). Sprinkle aamchur to taste.
    6. Cut the hard boiled eggs into quarters or ½ as per desire, turn it upside down.
    7. Apply little water on all edges so they stick, fold in from all quarters, or leave 2 sides open (as per desire).
    8. Using a pastry brush, paint the sheets with egg (egg wash) to get a golden brown effect, this is optional.
    9. Brush the oven tray or spray with oil to prevent sticking, spread them leaving enough space between each to puff up.
    10. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 1800C for not more than 20 minutes
    11. Serve piping hot with tomato sauce and coffee. Not ideal for re-heating.
