Curry Puff (Karipap)


Curry puff has been one of my favorite Malaysian snacks. We used to eat them as mid morning tea break snacks. I still remembered my secondary school canteen has variety of fillings for those lovely puff be it spicy sardines or curry potatoes for merely 10 Malaysian cents.
So I thought of bringing a piece of Malaysian snacks to treat my colleagues on my B-day.
Instead of frying(being the health conscious fellow) I opted to bake.

Ingredients (make about 30 puff)

Pastry:
  • 500gm Just Roll pastry puff
  • 1 egg for brushing

Fillings
  • 2 big potatoes (300gm)
  • 2 big onion-finely chopped
  • bunch of curry leaves-finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp cooking oil
  • 2 tbsp curry powder+2tbsp coconut cream+1/2cup warm water-make into paste
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp salt
  1. Boil the potatoes just about cook, drain the water. Diced into cube
  2. In a pan, heat the oil, add in onion , curry leaves and stir fry till fragant.
  3. Pour in diced potatoes and stir fry a little while, add in the curry paste, lower the heat.
  4. Add in the salt & sugar and let it simmer for another 5 minutes till slightly dry.
  5. Remove from pan and cool.
  6. On flat working surface roll out the pastry into thickness of 2-3mm. Then use a cookie cutter(3inches diameter) to cut into circular pad.
  7. On each circular pad, scoop in a tbsp of curry potatoes filling. Fold up and nip the edges.
  8. Use thumb and index finger to make the plait on the edges.
  9. Place the completed puffs onto baking tray.
  10. Heat the oven to 190C.
  11. Egg brush each puff on the top side
  12. Bake for 20-25mins till golden brown

Served while it's hot. What's the verdict from my colleagues? Thumbs UP!!!

karipap's my favourite!!!!My mom made so much when she was in Canterbury with me. Even my orang putih friend loved it.

Hi Fen, my version is not so spicy :-) to cater for English colleagues.

fen said...

You know what? I've asked my 'temporary' maid to make karipap next week. Hee! Hee! Maybe we'll make you baked version.

fen said...

oopss...I mean 'your'. Can't make 'you' any now.

Fen, my view , if it's short crust pastry is better to fry, if it's puff pastry better to bake.
