Puffs are filled pastry or filo/phyllo, flaky pastry served as snacks in Kerala, India. The filo/phyllo, flaky pastry is stuffed or filled with seasoned whole boiled eggs (Egg Puffs), assorted vegetables, meat or fish.

I was actually amazed when I saw these Puffs almost all Bakeries/Bakeshops in Kerala, until I realized that maybe they inherited this recipe from the English conquerors. Puffs are one of the available foods during early mornings for breakfast in Allepey, a district in Kerala since most restaurants are opening late. I am an early riser and I eat breakfast mostly, so i survived my trip with Puffs most of the time by going to an opened Bakeshop/Bakery.
