Crispy and crunchy chicken puffs- a perfect tea time snack.

Puff Pastry dough .. bought from the store.
Egg white ....... for glazing

For the Chicken filling:
Chicken fillet ... 100 gms
Onion ....... 1 sliced
Garlic paste ... 1 tsp
Ginger paste ... 1 tsp
Coriander powder ... 1/2 tsp
Cumin powder ........ 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder .... 1/4 tsp
Red chilli powder ..... 1/2 tsp
Garam masala .......... 1/2 tsp
Salt ......................... to taste
Oil ................ 2 -3 tbsps
Coriander leaves ... handful
Lemon juice ......... 2-3 tbsps

1. Clean the chicken and dice it into very thin strips. You can do it easily while it is a bit frozen.(alternately you can mince it coarsely in a food processor)

2. Marinate the chicken with lime juice and all the dry spice powders mentioned above.(at least for 1 hour)

3. In a pan heat oil and saute the ginger garlic. Add the sliced onion and fry for a minute.

4. Now tip in the marinated chicken and fry till the colour changes. Simmer until done. You may not require any water as the chicken is finely shredded and it cooks very fast.
5. Add the chopped coriander leaves.
To make the puffs:

1. Take the puff pastry dough. Cut out into rectangles of any desired size.
2. Spoon the chicken filling on one part. Apply a little water on the edges and fold the other part. Press the edges lightly to seal them.

3. Brush the top with egg white.
4. Bake in a pre-heated oven for 20 minutes or until they are crisp and done.

Pin for later
