Bangalore Mutta Puffs (popular Bangalore Style Egg Puffs)

When you walk on main streets of Bangalore, you will find vendors selling egg puffs on every corner of the street. Egg puffs are like the staple street snack of the Bangaloreans. During my stay in the city I got addicted to these sinful puffs and had them with every meal. I couldn't wait to try making them at home. This recipe was shared with me by a small bakery owner in Bangalore. It turned great. As authentic as it could get.
