Egg Puff Recipe: How To Make Crispy Egg Puff
Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. They will start to splutter. Turn the hob to medium heat and add sliced onions and saute them till soft. Add chopped tomatoes to this and saute till they are soft. Lower the heat again, add the dry powders and saute till they release their oils and you can smell a wonderful aroma. Remove from heat. Your masala mix is ready.
Prepare the puff pastry sheets by first cutting the roll in half, straightening each roll and dividing each rectangular sheet of pastry. Spoon the masala mix to the centre of the pastry square and place one half of a hard-boiled egg on top. Fold one corner of the pastry square to the centre on top of the egg; repeat this. Brush oil on top of each parcel. Your egg puffs are ready to go in the oven. Bake them till they are golden and flaky. Your puffs are ready to eat.
