Curry Puff

When you are craving for curry puff and don't wish to buy at the shops or at the 'roadside' stalls, we have to make it ourselves.  And when we feel lazy to make the dough pastry, we can always use the ready made puff pastry.  So easy!



1 (10" x 10") sheet ready made/store bought puff pastry (cut into 4 squares)

 Potato and chicken filling
Recipe source from Sonia's

250g potato, diced
150g chicken, diced
1tbsp chili paste
2tbsp meat curry powder
1 big onion, chopped
3 sprigs curry leaves
1tsp salt or to taste
1tsp sugar or to taste
1tsp light soy sauce

1. Heat oil in wok, sauté chopped onions until aroma
2. Mix in chili paste, curry leaves and curry powder till fragrant.
3. Add in diced chicken and potatoes, mix well.
4. Add in some water and simmer for 10-15min, season with salt, sugar and light soy sauce, cook
     until potato tender and mixture is dry.
5. Dish out to cool.

*  Preheat oven to 200C.
* Place one square of puff pastry and scoop the filling to one side of the puff pastry.
* Fold/wrapped it up and seal the edges by pressing it with a fork.
*  Egg wash the curry puff.
*  Bake for about 20 minutes or puff up golden brown.

* Left over extra filling have it with your rice for dinner.....

I remember, when my family they still resides here, we used to make sardine puff and had so much enjoyed this together with our tea.

  8. this is pretty, mel. can i know what brand are you using for your puff pastry? i like that they did not puff up extremely much..

    1. Hi Lena
      The puff pastry brand I'm using here is Pampas, an Australian brand; comes in a pack of 6 sheets in 10" x 10". I bought it in cold storage else you can get it Tesco and i found they are selling another brand too.

  9. Mel,
    I like to do what you did sometimes when I am craving for curry puff. Oh! Now I am feeling having some looking at your golden curry puff...:p
