Here is a spicy and delicious tea time snack. Its quick and simple as I made with store brought puff pastry and tastes just like the ones we get in bakeries of Kerala.Freshly baked puffs with a cup of tea is something that no one can resist..
Puff pastry sheet- 1 pack
For the filling
Hard boiled eggs - 4
( I cut pastry sheet into 8 pieces)
Onion - finely chopped- 2 medium
Ginger garlic paste- 1 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder- a pinch
Chilly powder- 1/2 tsp
Pepper powder- 1/2 tsp
Meat masala- 1 tsp
Tomato ketchup- 1 tsp
Lemon juice- a few drops(optional)
Chopped coriander leaves- a little
Heat oil in a pan and saute onion till golden brown. Add ginger garlic paste and fry till the raw flavor disappears. Make a paste of all the masala powders with 2-3 tbs of water and add and continue frying till oil separates. Add ketchup and boiled eggs cut into half. Add lemon juice and coriander leaves and coat with masala. Allow this to cool completely.
Thaw puff pastry as per package instruction. Roll out and cut into squares. Beat one egg to use as egg wash and keep aside.
Place spoonful of masala and one egg piece on the center of the pastry sheet. Brush the four sides of the pastry sheet with egg wash. Pull the corner towards the center and seal. Brush the outside with the egg wash and bake in 375 degree F and bake till the outside becomes crispy and golden brown. Serve with a cup of tea.
