Butter Egg Puffs

Butter  - Egg Puffs – A delicious baked snack !!!

Makes: 10 – 12 puffs


Please use same measuring cup to measure butter, water and flour.

½ cup unsalted  butter (Indian standard measuring cup of 100 ml/ 4 oz capacity)

1 cup water

1 cup all purpose flour (maida)

2  eggs

½ teaspoon  salt

½ teaspoon red chilli powder

½ teaspoon pepper powder

1 tablespoon chopped onions (optional)

1 teaspoon chopped coriander or mint leaves or a mix of both (optional)


In a medium sized saucepan, add the water and  butter. Bring to a boil over low heat.

When the butter almost melts, reduce the heat to high and boil for 1 minute.

 Remove from the heat and add the flour all at once. Stir quickly. The mixture will form a dough ball that will leaves  from the sides of the pan. It’s very soft in texture.

Return to heat and cook on a low heat  for another 2 minutes. Stir well.

Add the eggs one at a time, stirring after each addition until the eggs are well combined  into the dough. Do  this procedure by hand with a wooden spoon. Now it’s creamy in texture.

 Stir in salt to taste, red chilli powder, pepper, chopped onion and coriander leaves (optional).

Preheat oven to 425°F or 220 * C.  Spoon out small balls (about a heaping tablespoon) of the dough onto a greased  baking sheet / pan.  Leave 1 inch gap between each puffs. Place in oven and cook for 20 – 25 minutes until puffed up and lightly golden. Serve hot.
