EGG CURRY PUFFS

Egg Curry Puffs

I call this Egg Curry Puff as this has boiled egg with onion-tomato masala as the stuffing. Great flavor from the onion-tomato which is quite a favorite snack at home.

INGREDIENTS:

Puff Pastry Sheets------------6 (I used Jecky Best's 5X5 cut sheets)
Eggs----------------------------3 Boiled and shell peeled
Onion--------------------------1 sliced finely
Tomato------------------------1 chopped
Red chilli Powder------------1tsp
Turmeric----------------------1/8 tsp
Coriander Pwd---------------1/4 tsp
Salt,Pepper powder----------to taste
Oil-----------------------------1tbsp

DIRECTIONS:

1.Thaw the frozen pastry sheets at room temperature for about an 45-60mins until soft and easy to work with.

2.Heat the 1tbsp oil in a pan and add the onions,turmeric powder and little salt. Cook them on medium flame until they become browned. 

3.Add chopped Tomatoes and sauté for 5-7 minutes until cooked.

4.Add the coriander powder, chill powder,pepper powder and salt to taste. Saute until oil separates slowly and let it cool.

5.Place all the cut sheets on a wide rectangular baking sheet and place about 1/2 tsp of the cooked masala onto the center.

6.Slit each of the peeled eggs into two halves lengthwise and place each half on each sheet over the placed masala.

7.Fold in all the edges towards the center and seal the top edge with little water rubbed over to seal them together.

8.Place the baking sheet in oven pre-heated to 375degrees for 20-25 minutes .Make sure to check on them halfway and rotate over to avoid burning the bottoms.
