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.
