pepper powder 1/2 tsp
chat masala 1/2tsp

-Thaw the pastry sheet as per packet instructions.Cut along the folds and then cut again into 6 or 9 pieces which ever suits you to fold better.(discard any serrated edges)
-Cook the chicken with little pepper and salt for 7-10 minutes.Drain the stock or reserve for soups.Mince the cooked chicken in a food processor or blender.
-Prepare the filling by heating a pan with oil.Saute the sliced onion till lightly browned and the oil seeps out and then add ginger garlic paste,saute till raw smell disppears.
-Add the spices and mix on low flame.Add the chopped tomatoes,curry leaves,chopped coriander leaves.
-Add 1/3 cup of water and let it cook for sometime.Add the cooked chicken when the gravy thickens and then keep stirring till the water content dries up.Add in the chat masala & lemon juice now and put off flame.
-Let the filling cool down.In the mean time,Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and then place filling (if you are using 6 rectangles place 2tsp filling,if using 9 rectangles place 1 1/2 tsp filling) on each rectangle,close them like a pouch ,rectangle,or triangular shape.(I made both rectangular & triangular ones,seal the sides with water properly)
-Apply or brush egg white on top of each of them.
-Place it in the oven and bake for 15 minutes.
-Remove from oven & cool on wire rack for 5 minutes before serving.

Servings ~ 6/9 puffs

* You can make the filling with paneer or soya chunks if you are a vegetarian the same way.
*Applying egg white gives a nice color after baking.You can also apply butter instead of egg.
