Garlic - 4 big cloves
Cilantro/Coriander leaves - few sprigs
Cumin/Jeera seeds - 1/2 tsp

Method:
1. Thaw the pastry sheets as per the instructions.  It takes about 40 minutes.
2. Boil 6 eggs in water for 10 - 15 minutes.  After cooling, remove the shells and cut the eggs in halves.  Discard the yolk and roughly dice the eggs.  You can add yolk if you like.
3. Heat about 1 tbsp oil in a pan.  Add cumin seeds and grated garlic.  When cumin seeds darken, add finely chopped onions and green chillies.  Add little salt and saute till onions soften.
4. Add diced eggs, little more salt, chat masala and chopped cilantro.  Saute at low flame for about 5 minutes or till all the ingredients are mixed well.  Let this stuffing cool.
