- To this add the chicken stock and bring to boil. Reduce the flame and cook for about 5 minutes, add the cooked chicken with veggies to this and combine well. Add fresh cream, combine and bring to boil.
- Add all purpose flour and combine without forming lumps. Now add butter, combine and cook over low flame till thick and creamy. Add a pinch of salt and if required (the chicken stock already contains salt, so add salt only if required). Remove from flame.
- Move this mixture to 5 – 6 ramekins and cover it with the puff pastry squares. Seal the sides by pressing the puff pastry at the sides with a fork. Give a small cut on the puff pastry, at the center, to leave the steam. Coat the puff pastry with the egg mixed with a pastry brush.
