Curried egg puffs


Frozen Puff pastry sheets, Hard boiled eggs, 2-3 sliced Onions, Few chopped curry leaves, Chopped cilantro(coriander leaves), 1/2 tsp red chilli powder, 1/2 tsp jeera powder,2 tsp cooking oil and salt to taste.

Take the pastry sheets from the freezer and thaw them at room temperature. Cut each egg vertically(lengthwise)into two halves. In a pan, heat oil,Add the curry leaves and the sliced onions and cook them on medium low until they start turning light brown. Now add chilli powder,jeera powder and salt and finally add the chopped coriander leaves and stir well.
While the cooked onions are cooling down, roll out the pastry sheets on a lightly floured surface and cut the pastry into rectangles strips about 3-4 inches wide by 5-6 inches long (approx).
Place a tablespoon of the onions on a strip and a half of boiled egg(the cut side down). Moisten the edges of the strips with little water and fold the strip,so that it encloses the strip. Now press down on the edges to seal. If u want, you can press the edges with a fork for a fluted pattern. Continue this process until you are done with all the strips.
Preheat the oven to 200 C. Place the puffs on a baking sheet and bake it till the pastry in golden brown on top.
Let it rest for 3-5 mins.serve it hot with tomato ketchup or sweet chutney.
