Kerala egg puffs (prepared without frozen pastry sheet)

My first attempt of making puff came out very well I can't express how much happy I am now. This I prepared without using frozen pastry sheet that is exactly making me happy. My big criticizer my sister approved my preparation these all makes me happy. Trust me it was very tasty and didn't take much time.

Butter                                   : 30 g
Melted butter                        : 2 tbsp
Salt to taste
For filling
Hard boiled egg                     : 5
Oil                                        : 1 tbsp

Green chilli                           : 3
Chopped ginger and garlic         : 1 tbsp
Chilli powder                         : 1 tsp
Turmeric powder                   : ¼ tsp

9.    Cut the sheet in to rectangular pieces

11.  Place 2 tsp of onion mixture at the centre and place half piece of hard boiled egg
12. Seal it by folding four sides.
