Egg puffs | Easy recipe by Delicious Sweet Aroma

Egg Puffs

On the occasion of Easter weekend, I baked Egg Puffs wondering if something similar like these that are made in bakeries can be re-created at home.

I never thought Egg puffs were this easy to be made at home, especially when you feel confounded by making a dough and your not too sure if the pastry would turn out puffy with crispy golden flaky crust after baking. To make it more easier I used the ready-to-use puff pastry which you must definitely try unless you’re good at it.

 

Preparation time: 20 minutes

Cooking & baking time: 20 minutes

Required appliance: Oven

Boiled Eggs – 4

Puff pastry – 1 pack ready-to-use (remember to thaw it before making them into desired shapes)

Garam masala – 1/4 tsp

Chicken masala powder – 3/4 tsp

Turmeric powder – 1/4 tsp

Pepper powder – 1/2 tsp & seasoning

Red chili powder – 1/2 tsp

Green chilies – 1, chopped

Coriander powder (optional) – 1/2 tsp

 

Chaat masala (optional) for seasoning

Fill in 1 tsp of the filling and top with egg halves facing down and to the corners lengthwise. Brush with egg wash, stretch the 2 corners towards the center.  If required use a fork to seal them (Mine didn’t seal too well, but it looked delicious I believe ;)). For video

Serve them with ketchup or enjoy them on its own. I would recommend without ketchup to to enjoy the spice filling.
