Egg Puffs


An evening after a hectic day at work is the most difficult time for us.Cookies or any other ready made snack will not suffice our urge. Moreover we will be super tired and totally in no mood to make something and eat. But when we think of the puff we truly get some interest and it gives us some enthusiasm and we just jump in !!! I earlier made the vegetarian version and liked it so much and wanted to make the puffs with some other stuffing. It is an easy to make snack which needs only 10 minutes of prep work and 10 minutes of baking.

I simply fell in love with the puff pastry sheets and started to buy them often. There is one recipe I wanted to make with these sheets but somehow never made it. I'm just waiting for the auspicious day I will prepare it. I have many recipes in my wish list and just want to cook them when there is good sunlight so that I can get good pics.But when the sun is shining I have no mood for cooking. So it's all my fault. Hoping to exhaust my wish list soon !!!!



Ingredients

Puff Pastry Sheets - 1 no
Egg - 3 no
White Onion - 1 no
Tomato - 1 no
Chilly Powder - 1 tsp
Turmeric Powder - 1/4 tsp
Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
Coriander Leaves
Salt
Oil - 1 tsp



Preparation
  • Boil, remove shells and slice the eggs into equal halves.
  • Remove the egg yolk.
  • Thaw the puff pastry sheets for about 40 min or as mentioned in the pack.
Method
  • Preheat oven to 250 F.
  • Heat oil, add cumin seeds, finely chopped onion and saute until onion turns translucent.Add tomato and saute well.
  • Add chilly powder, turmeric powder, salt and mix well.
  • Sprinkle some water and allow it cook.Garnish with freshly chopped coriander.
  • Puff Pastry sheet would be a single big sheet. Place it on a floured surface and cut into equal halves. Out of each half you can make 3 puffs.
  • Place 1 spoonful of stuffing inside the egg and place it into each rectangular piece (made out of each half) and close it.
  • Brush oil on top and bake for about 10 - 12 minutes or until turns golden brown.
  • Serve hot with tomato sauce.
