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)
For the filling:
Oil/Ghee – 2 tbsp
Onion – medium, chopped into 0.5 cm thickness
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
Egg wash for glazing
1. In a saucepan, fry onions till slightly brown. Add garam masala, chicken powder, coriander powder (if your using) ,green chilies, chili powder. Mix. Add turmeric and pepper powder. Fry for a 1-2 mins. Transfer to a small container to cool.
2. Peel the eggs and cut them lengthwise with a very sharp knife. Lightly wet the knife for cleanest cut. Season with pepper powder, salt and chaat masala.
3. Thaw the puff pastry as per instructions given in the package.
Using half of this puff pastry. Flatten it into desired thickness into a square. Cut out the uneven sides and use this left-over in the end. Divide the pastry into required square size to make different shapes.
Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius or 400 deg F (convection with fan) until it reaches the desired temperature.
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
4. Line the puffs in a baking sheet and bake at 200 degrees Celsius for approximately 15 minutes or until the pastry top becomes golden brown and crisp.
Serve them with ketchup or enjoy them on its own. I would recommend without ketchup to to enjoy the spice filling.
Happy Easter! Enjoy the weekend.
