Chicken Puffs


Spicy chicken puffs is a favorite tea time snack with my family..when I say spicy it is the really spicy peppery chicken puffs with hot piping tea.  This crunchy munchy tea time snack is perfect for every occasion. Puffs can be made with several types of filling. But my most favorite is this chicken filled pastry. I was so happy to find a pack of ready to roll puff pasty sheet at our local grocery store. I was really missing the spicy yummy puffs sold at the corner bakery near my home in Kerala. The aroma of the fresh baked puffs would fill the surroundings and many times we felt that he purposely baked them in the evenings when we children were coming back from school  hungry :) 

Ingredients
Puff Pastry sheets- 1 pack
Egg white -1
Boneless chicken- 1/2 lb
Onion- 1 medium
Ginger garlic paste- 2 tsp
Turmeric powder - a pinch
Chilly powder- 1/2 tsp
Coriander powder- 1 1/2 tsp
Pepper powder - 3/4 tsp
Tomato chopped- 1 medium
Garam Masala- 3/4 tsp
Meat Masala- 3/4 tsp
Chopped coriander leaves
Chopped mint leaves - 1 tsp
lemon juice- a few drops
salt to taste.
oil


Thaw the puff sheet as instructed in the package.
Cook chicken (boneless, skinless) with little of turmeric powder, salt and half of the pepper powder for six to eight minutes. Chop them into smaller pieces and set aside.
Heat oil in a pan and saute onions till golden brown. Saute ginger garlic paste till the raw flavor disappears.Add the powders and fry them for a minute and finally add chopped tomatoes and chicken and fry for two minutes Finally add in mint and coriander leaves and lemon juice . Carefully roll out the sheets and cut into desired shapes. Beat egg whites till light and fluffy.Fill with  chicken masala in the sheets and seal the edges. Lightly brush with egg whites and bake pre heated oven 325 degree for about eight minutes. Enjoy.


Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy.
