When I was india I had done lot of R&d to prepare the Puff. I tried it couple of times but it didnt become fluffy. It was very messy too. So for a while I thought lets try to use the readily available Puff Pastry Sheets out here in the market. The outcome was amazing. But I would be happy the day I get this outcome when i can make those sheets too :)

Prawns Puff
2 Puff Pastry sheets
1 Cup Prawns
1 Tomato
2 Onions
4 Garlic Cloves
1 Spoon Corriander Powder
1 Spoon Red Chilli Powder
1/4 Spoon Garam Masala
1/4 Spoon Jeera Powder
1/2 Spoon Black Pepper Powder
A pinch of turmeric powder
1 Egg
Salt to taste

  • Take out the pastry sheets from the fridge and keep them aside to thaw.
  • In the mean time, heat the oil and add finely chopped onion to it. Cook till onion is translucent
  • Add finely chopped tomato in it and cook till tomato is almost done.
  • Add prawns and garlic to it and cook for couple of minutes.
  • Add turmeric powder, red chilli powder, garam masala, jeera powder, black pepper powder and salt to taste. Cook till oil seprates out.
  • Add corriander powder to it and again cook for a minute or two. Keep aside
  • Pre-heat the oven to 400F
  • Grease the baking tray.
  • Cut each baking sheet into 3 vertical and 2 horizonal pieces to give you 6*2 = 12 pieces. On each piece of the sheet add in the prawns mixure and fold it and keep it on the baking tray.
  • Beat the egg, dip a tissue in it and spread the egg over the puffs
  • Bake in oven at 400F/200C for 15 minutes and your puffs should be ready to serve.

I used medium sized prawns so that I dont need to cut them and neither are they too small to recognise and loose their taste in the masala.
Also I used the egg to get the golden brown effect of the puff as mentioned on the puff pastry sheet box.
