Egg Puffs

This snack was(or i should say).. still is one of my favourite evening snack...i use to get dis in our hostel mess for our evening tea snack.Its easily avaialble in veg/non-veg. form @ any  kerala coffee/tea shops or bakery.

The actual version is made from puff pastery ,but here am trying sumthg new n different...as v don't get puff pastry sheets here :(

For Dough-the preparation is  same as Pizza dough(click to chk).
Makes - 8 puffs
For Stuffing:
Onion- 2 large (sliced )
Eggs – 4 (boiled and cut into half )
Curry leaves – 1 sprig
Chilli Powder -1 tsp
Garam Masala - 1tsp
Salt to taste
Oil- 1 tbsp
Coriander Leaves - 1 tbsp


Prepare the dough and keep it aside for 1 hr.Let it rise and double in size.
For filling-Heat oil in a pan and saute onions,curry leaves.Put the lid on and cook till onions are slightly brown.
Add chilli powder,garam masala and salt and mix well.Atlast add coriander leaves.Take out in a bowl and let it cool.
Take the dough and pat it using ur fist(to release extra air).Divide into equal sized balls and roll into thick puri.
Spread the onion filling and egg(flat side down) in the center and fold from all sides.Repeat the process till the dough and filling finishes.
Arrange it in a baking tray and cover with a cloth and let it rise for 15-20 mins.

In that resting time you switch on the oven and heat it @ 200 degree C.Bake the Puffs for 30-40 min.
Serve them hot with a splash of ghee/Butter on top along with hot Tea/Coffee.

Nb:-For those who are using pastry sheets,please cut the sheet into equal squares and fill them with onion filling and egg and close all four sides and bake(same as above method).
