1. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan and add the onion, ginger, garlic, curry leaves and a pinch of salt. Saute until onion begins to change color. Add turmeric powder, chilly power and pepper powder. Saute for a few seconds until their raw smell leaves. Add chopped tomatoes and cook for 2 minutes. Next add prawns, salt and saute until the moisture completely evaporates, about 2 – 3 minutes. Add garam masala powder and cook for a minute. Add cilantro and mix well.  Switch off. Set aside to cool.

2. Thaw the puff pastry sheets as instructed in the package. (I used pepperidge farm puff pastry sheet.) Each packet has 2 puff pastry sheets. You can make 6 puffs from each sheet. Cut the puff pastry sheet into 6 equal parts. Put 1.5 – 2 tbsp prawn masala in the center of each pastry. 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 with ketchup.
