  • (Optional) If you don't have cooked chicken, then you can cook the raw chicken pieces (cut into small pieces) in a pan with a teaspoon or two of oil, saute for around 5-10 minutes on medium flame till they are cooked completely and in a ready to eat state. Keep them aside to be used in the filling.
  • Thaw the frozen puff pastry sheets as per package instructions. Alongside, once you take out the pastry sheets from freezer for thawing, immediately start working on the filling.
  • For the filling, heat oil in a non-stick pan or skillet and add cumin seeds to it. Once it splutters, add chopped ginger and chopped garlic, and saute for a few seconds. Then, add onions to it. Saute onions till they are light golden (don't brown them). Add chopped tomatoes and saute them again for a minute. Now, add the spices (salt, coriander powder, turmeric powder, chicken masala, kasuri methi, black pepper, red chili pepper, ground nutmeg and ground cinnamon) and tomato ketchup and saute for another minute. Finally, add the cooked chicken pieces, saute for a minute again and switch off the flame. Keep aside the filling for later use.
  • Take the thawed pastry sheet, unfold it carefully, spread some flour on your kitchen surface (where you want to prepare the puffs) and lightly dust both sides of the sheet. With a rolling pin, roll the sheet from all sides (this is optional). Cut it into 9 (3*3) equal squares as shown in the picture. Preheat the oven to 400 degree F. Prepare egg wash by beating 1 egg in a bowl and keep it aside.For making one puff, take one square and roll it from all sides using a rolling pin (this is optional). Apply egg wash using a pastry brush to the 4 sides of the sheet (on the side facing up). Add 1 Tbsp of filling in the center of the sheet. Fold the pastry sheet into a triangle carefully. Then, using a fork, create a design on the folded sides very carefully. Put the triangular pastry on the baking tray lined with parchment paper.
  • Repeat the above step for all the pastry squares.
  • Finally, apply egg wash on top part of all the prepared pastry triangles.
  • Bake the prepared pastry triangles in the preheated oven for around 18-20 minutes. Once done, remove the baking tray from the oven.
  • Serve the hot and flaky Chicken Curry Puffs with a sauce or dip of your choice.


  • For a vegetarian version of this recipe, you can use Paneer (Cottage Cheese) or Tofu.
  • Check the pastry sheets after 30 minutes of thawing and use them immediately, otherwise they become difficult to handle.
  • If you want to skip egg, the egg wash can be replaced with the milk wash.
  • To store the other frozen pastry sheet, wrap the sheet tightly in a plastic wrap or a ziplock bag and freeze until next use.
