There was a small bakery near my first PG in Bangalore. We(mic n me) used to eat egg puff from there once in a while. It is so crisp and so tasty. They used give it in a small newspaper square and the puffs will be cut into 2 pieces. After leaving Bangalore, I guess I dint have egg puff. Few days back I made chicken roast puffs. Now i thought of making egg puffs for my friends who came home. It is simple(if you have puff pastry at home) and ofcourse tasty.
