Curry puff is Asian most popular snack and it can be found anywhere, either at the street stall or bakery shop. We can have it anywhere anytime. Those curry puffs sell on the street stalls are mainly deep fried. Whereby the bakery shop usually sells baked curry puffs. When you ask us which one do we prefer? We prefer both. Deep fried curry puffs had been part of the growing up food from childhood and can be easily found at the food stalls along the street, whereby the baked curry puffs are mainly home-made or usually sell in the bakery shop.
My family is a big fan of curry puffs and we will usually grab some from the bakery shop during our weekly grocery shopping. Thus, it has always come to my mind to make curry puffs at home from scratch. In this way, we can have curry puffs to the fullest and savour whenever we are craving for it. At the same time, we can have quality baked curry puffs with cheaper cost. Isn't it great?
I chanced upon this puff pastry recipe from one of my blogger friend's blog (Anggie). She used this puff pastry recipe for her chicken and mushroom pie and it looked awesome. I thought it would be a good idea to use it for making curry puffs and here I'm now to tell you the puff pastry is definitely a good choice. It is not only easy to make but also crunchy and moist. It is just the kind of puff pastry I liked.
Since this is my first attempt at making curry puffs from scratch, I must admit that I am not good in pleating the curry puffs... (LOL). Well, practice makes perfect, I shall do better the next time. However, I tried a few and managed to close the edges of the curry puffs neatly. I have finished the rest of the curry puffs by simply pressing the edges with a fork like those pastries sell in the bakery shop.
If you do not have the time to spare, you can make the dough in advance and keep it in the freezer for future use. I made a double of the amount and kept half of the dough in the freezer. Then, have been using it for my chicken pie few days ago. Isn't it time saving and versatile? Alright peeps! That's all for today, see you then and have a pleasant day!
