Egg Puffs!

I think its time to give up my laziness. This is my first entry in 2008...So lets start my new year by wishing all my friends a Happy and Prosperous New Year!!!
Today we were relaxing at home i was thinking what to make for tea time snack. Suddenly easy and tasty egg puffs came to my mind. I always make puffs with Pepperidge farm puff pastry sheets and it comes out as tasty as the ones we get in our bakeries. So I made it .

The recipe goes like this..

1.Puff pastry sheets-1
3.Onion-1 meduim
4.Meat masala-1/2 tbs
5.Chilly powder-1/2 tsp(paprika
6.Turmeric powder-1/4 tsp
7.Egg white(for polishing)

1. Saute Onion and add meat masala ,chilly powder,turmeric powder and salt.
2.Boil eggs
3.Pre-heat oven for 10 mins in 350 F.
4.Thaw the sheets for 30-40 mins.Once it thawed open and cut it into 6 sheets.
5.Cut the egg into halves.
6.Put the Onion masala mix in the sheet and keep an egg half on top of it.
7.Then fold it and apply beaten egg white on it to get polish look.
8.Bake it for around 30 minutes.

Have it with hot tea!!!
