Poach an Egg and Go Puff!

Oh the whole process of poaching an egg! I could barely stop smiling after I managed to successfully poach one, and yep! took pictures as well. Never realised there were so many ways to prepare an egg up until I watched the movie ‘the Runaway bride’. Might actually try out every style one day, just for the heck of it. Lol 😉

I had some puff pastry rolls in the fridge, so thought of giving egg puffs a shot. It ended up quite well, I must say. The egg inside the puffs was softer unlike the ones you get from shops.

Ingredients:-

  • Eggs- 5
  • Puff pastry sheet – 1 sheet(approx 320 gm)
  • Vinegar- 2 tbsp
  • Onion – 1
  • Ginger – 1/2 “
  • Garlic – 1 clove
  • Green chillies – 2
  • Coriander leaves – handful
  • Basil leaves – 3-4
  • Red chilli powder – 1 tsp
  • Garam masala – 1/4 tsp
  • Pepper powder – 1/4 tsp
  • Turmeric powder – 1/4 tsp
  • Salt
  • Vegetable oil – 2 tbsp
  • Grated cheddar cheese – 1/4 cup

Method:-

  1. Lets make the masala first. For this, heat the oil in a pan. Add chopped onion and saute for a minute.
  2. Grind together the Ginger, garlic, coriander leaves and basil leaves to a fine mixture.
  3. Add this to the onion and mix well. Once the mixture is soft and starting to brown, add the spice powders and salt.
  4. Cook for a minute more and then take off from the hob.
  5. Now let us poach an Egg. Boil water in a saucepan, enough to let the egg dive.
  6. Once the water is bubbling, keep on sim. Add the vinegar to this.
  7. Crack an egg into a small bowl or ramekin, this is to slowly pour the egg into the simmering water.
  8. With a spoon, make a whirlpool in the water and slowly pour in the egg.
  9. The egg white will wrap the yolk in beautifully. Let it cook for 3 minutes and then with the spoon take the egg out on a plate.
  10. Roll the pastry sheet on the counter and cut into 5 squares.
  11. In one, add a little masala, top it with the egg and some grated cheddar cheese. Wrap it and keep aside.
  12. Once all the sheets are filled, bake them in the oven for about 6-7 minutes, flipping it once. The temperature in the oven could be around 150-200 degrees.

Have them with a nice cuppa!
