Kerala Style Egg Puffs

Ready-made puff pastry really comes handy when you want to make quick sweet or savory snacks. One of the popular items you can find in any Kerala bakeries are freshly baked puffs. And my all-time favorite is their egg puffs. Now if you can get hold of ready-made puff pastry sheets, making these bakery style puffs at home is very easy.

These egg puffs are so quick to make and does not need much ingredients -  just boiled eggs and a simple mixture of onion and spices. If you don't eat eggs, then check out this recipe for vegetable puffs. They make a great evening for kids and adults alike. Enjoy these homemade egg puffs with tomato sauce or ketchup and hot tea!!!


{  Puff pastry stuffed with a spicy onion mixture and boiled eggs }
Makes 4


2 hard-boiled eggs, halved
2 tsp oil
2 medium onion, sliced
2-3 green chillies, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, grated
½ inch ginger, grated
1 sprig curry leaves, chopped
¼ tsp turmeric powder
½ tsp coriander powder
½ tsp kashmiri red chilly powder
¼ tsp pepper powder
½ tsp garam masala
1 tsp tomato sauce
Salt to taste
1 puff pastry sheet
1 egg, beaten for brushing


1. Preheat the oven to 200 °C | 400 °F. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.

2. Keep the pastry sheet outside for 30 minutes or thaw them as per the instructions in the packet.

3. Heat oil in a pan and add onion, green chillies, garlic, ginger and curry leaves. Fry till the onion turns golden brown.

4. Add tomato sauce, turmeric powder, coriander powder, red chilly powder, pepper powder, garam masala, salt and fry for 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool.

5. Cut the pastry sheet into 4 square pieces. Spoon the onion mixture on the middle of each pastry square and place a halved egg on it.

6. Fold all the corners of the pastry to the center on top of the egg and slightly press to seal the top and sides. Gently brush with egg wash.

7. Place on the baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes or until it turns golden brown.

Serving Suggestion ~ Tomato sauce / ketchup.

Notes and Tips
  • If pastry sheet has become too soft to handle, refrigerate till firmer, approximately 10 minutes.
  • Instead of egg wash, you can also brush with milk.
  • Adjust the spices according to your preferences.
