Recipe Marathon: Day 7 - Egg Puffs

Monday evening 4pm

Two little kiddos jump from their school bus and run into the house. They freshen up and sit in front of the TV.......;)

As the clock ticks towards 4:30pm, the two little devils are involved in a crazy battle as to who gets the larger portion of the hot goodies that their mama would be getting in a short while from now!

U ask what? any guesses what they are......

...................Its a packet filled with some hot Egg Puffs..:D and this used to happen for almost 3 times a week for many many years... and we still fight!...:)

This is undoubtedly one of my fondest memories that I would cherish...and Off these yummy Egg puffs goes to Sarah's 'Tastes to Remember' event.

Egg Puffs with Spicy Onion Masala


1 Puff Pastry sheet, thawed for atleast 30 minutes
4 hard boiled Eggs, cut into halves, lengthwise

For Onion Masala

1 tbsp Oil
1 medium Onion, cut into thin slices
Salt to taste
1 clove Garlic, minced
1 tsp Cumin seeds
1/2 tsp Garam Masala
1/8 tsp Turmeric
1 tsp Red Chilli powder
fresh Cilantro leaves


1. To prepare Onion Masala, heat oil in a pan, toss garlic, cumin seeds and onion, saute until golden brown. Then add salt, turmeric, garam masala and red chilli powder. Mix well and finally add the cilantro leaves. Keep aside.

2. Cut the thawed puff pastry into 6 squares each approximately about 3.5 inches wide by 5 inches long.

3. Place a spoonful of onion masala in the middle and then an halved egg, cut side down.

4. Fold the two ends of th strip, so that it encloses the egg (as shown in the pic). Seal the edges by applying very little water.

5. Preheat oven for 375 deg and Bake these for about 10-15 minutes. Serve hot with ketchup!

  16. Hi Siri... I am new on the foodie blogosphere. Noticed your egg puff recipe on Homemade's Tastes to Remember Roundup and pretty promptly pulled out the puff pastry from the freezer. Did you say fights over who got the bigger one??? Things came to blows at my place when I handed out a plate to the hubby and his brother!!! I made a few changes in my version - and will be posting it pretty soon on my blog. Thanks for such a quick (I am sucker for that) and mindblowingly great recipe!!!! And do visit my blog when you have the time.
