Egg Puffs

Egg Puffs


1. Eggs – 6, hard-boiled and sliced into halves

2. Onion – 1 large or 2 medium, finely chopped

Ginger-garlic paste – 2 tsp

Green chilly – 1 – 2, finely chopped

Curry leaves – 4 – 5, chopped

3. Turmeric powder – 1/4 tsp

Chilly powder – – 1/2 tsp

Pepper powder – 1/2 tsp

Chicken masala powder / meat masala / garam masala – 2 tsp

4. Tomato ketchup – 1 – 2 tsp

5. Salt – To taste

6. Oil – 1 – 1.5 tbsp

7. Egg-white – of 1 egg, for egg wash


1. Heat oil in a pan. Saute chopped onion, little salt, ginger garlic paste, green chilies and chopped curry leaves. Saute until onion turns golden. Add the spice powders numbered 3. Mix everything well and saute until their raw smell is gone. Add ketchup. Mix well and cook for a minute. Check for salt. Add the halved eggs and mix everything well. Set aside.

2.  Thaw the puff pastry sheets as instructed in the package. I used pepperidge farm puff pastry sheets. Each packet has 2 puff pastry sheets. You can make 6 puffs from each sheet. Cut the puff pastry sheet into desired shapes. Put some onion masala on each pastry and place an egg half on top of it. Seal the puffs using your fingers. Arrange the prepared puffs on a baking sheet lined with foil/ aluminium paper or greased with oil. Lightly beat the egg white and brush it on top of the stuffed puff pastries. Preheat the oven to 400 F and bake for 15 – 20 minutes or until the puffs turns golden brown on top. Serve warm with a cup of tea or with ketchup.

  • Hi Maya,

    I just went through your puffs recipe and it sounds very easy to make! I would like to know if you are aware of any other alternative to puff pastry sheets! If so please post that too! 🙂

  • Dear Maya,
    I tried this at home and it came out really well. Everyone loved it..Thank y:ou so much for the wonderful recipe. Gonna try the chicken puffs next 🙂

  • Hello Maya, I tried this and it came out delicious (as I expected because your Egg Roast is the best thing I’ve eaten). Now I’m planning to make vegetable puffs and wanted a recipe from a blog I trust. You don’t have one here (yet) but do you think using the same masala would work if I was using potatoes, carrots and peas? Or would you suggest any adjustments I should make? Even if its vegetarian I want it to have the full and intense flavor the egg masala has:)

    Thank you!

  • Hello Maya Tried this and came out excellent! Thank you and noticed you haven’t written when to add Gg paste 😁 . ❤️

  • Maya, I’ve tried the egg puff recipe a few times now and each time they turned out delicious .
    Thank you for posting such an easy yummy recipe!

    I used the Aussie bakery puff pastry sheets , they take close to an hour to thaw. One time I forgot all about the pastry sheets left outside for 3 hrs or so and had to painfully separate them as they stick together into a gooey mess. Even then the end product was fine 🙂

    I use the big onions from Costco , could make 18 puffs easily with the masala.

    It’s a frequent dish whenever we have friends come over home and these puffs vanish in no time.

    Thank you again
