Heat 1tbsp oil in a pan, when oil is hot add the sliced onions and curry leaves, saute onions until they turn light brown. Now add the chopped tomatoes and cook until they are mashed. Next add red chilli powder, cumin powder, turmeric powder and required salt. Saute for few more mins until the masala powders are cooked, remove pan from heat and allow onion mixture to cool. Pre-heat oven at 400F( or as per box instructions), place a parchment paper or a foil paper on a baking tray. Take one puff pastry square, slightly flour pastry square on both sides( so that pastry sheet do not stick to you fingers), place spoonful of curried onion mixture in the center of pastry square and place half boiled egg on the top of curried mixture.
