Beneath layers of puff pastry lies half a boiled egg and tons of caramelised onions. But what takes this snack to sublime heights is the deluge of Indian spices, which soaks into the egg and onions, resulting in a unique flavour that's very addictive. Combined with the crispy, flaky and slightly salty puff pastry, it's a match made in foodie heaven.
Egg puff enthusiasts search for years to find the bakery with the perfect recipe to satisfy their taste buds. The acceptable way of eating one is to just take big bites while the super fine flakes crumble and fall everywhere, but true lovers have another way of doing it - they lovingly peel off the top layers of pastry one by one and eat them without touching any of the curry inside, finally exposing the yellow, perfect dome of the half-egg sitting in the masala. It's only then that they start to bite into the puff - this way, there's less pastry involved in each bite, and the full bodied spices that have permeated the egg just burst onto the palette (esp if you happen to chomp on a wayward piece of green chilli). Plus, the whole thing lasts so much longer when savoured this way.
Best devoured as a mid-morning snack - they're fresh out of the bakery ovens at that time of day, and are absolutely divine when had piping hot.
