I love puffs so much.I never get bored of this snack. I remember my school days when there used to be 2 bakeries kings bakery and Greatest bakery near by. Getting puffs from there and having was like a special occasion for me and my brothers.

Now only the Greatest bakery is there.Every evening we can get fresh hot puffs there. They just melt in the mouth. Even now when i pass this bakery i don't miss the chance grab 1 or 2.

The masala inside the puffs gives a great taste to the puff. The masala can be prepared as per our wish.The only thing is it should be little dry.U can add either boiled eggs ,veggies or chicken to this masala.

2.When they become soft add the ginger garlic Paste.

3.Then add the tomatoes and when they get mashed .

4.Add all the masala along with salt and mix well.If needed add little water and allow it to cook for 5 min.But in the end the masala should be little dry.It shouldn't be watery. Switch off the stove and add the egg to it and coat the egg with the masala.Allow it to cool.

5.Pre heat the oven to 400 F .

6.Cut the pastry sheet into desired size .Apply egg wash or water on all 4 sides of the sheet.

7.Place the masala coated egg inside and seal it on one edge .The remaining 2 sides should be open.

8.Apply egg wash on the top side of the pastry sheet and place it in the oven.

9.Bake it for 15 - 20 min. check it frequently. Baking time depends on the pastry sheet and oven.

Tomato can be substituted with amchur powder.Its dry mango powder available in grocery stores. 1/4 tsp of amchur powder should be added at the end before switching off the stove. It gives a tangy taste to the masala.
