Curry Puff (Karipap) 咖哩角



If compare to earlier spiral curry puff, this simple method of curry puff (it is a small pie consisting of specialised curry with chicken and potatoes in a deep-fried pastry shell) not tasted flaky but it still tasted slight crunchy after cool down. Anyway, this curry puff is much easy to make if compare to spiral type.



I saw my friend Helena shared this simple curry puff a year ago, till now only got a chance to try it out. I also planning to bring this curry puff to a bloggers party (will update more later )

You can made in large batch, frozen it and deep fry whenever you crave for some.



My little son helped me to capture on how to make the pleat of this curry puff, refer video below.

2. Cook until potato has changed colour on the edges then add chicken breast, stir fry for 1-2mins then add in curry powder and chilli powder. Add water and bring to boil.
3. Add salt, sugar, chicken powder & fish sauce to taste, then turn the heat down and cook until potato is soften and the liquid has reduced and form a dry paste. Cool completely before use. 

Pastry

2. Rub in butter with flours until crumble, then add in cooking oil, to mix well.
3. Pour icy cold water over flours, mix thoroughly with a wooden spatula in the mixing bowl. Then, lightly knead till soft dough, do not over work. Cover dough with plastic wrap and rest for at least 15 minutes. 

To assemble- Divide and shape dough into 13g each ball. Then roll out each ball into a 8-10cm circle, wrap in potato filling. Pinch edges to seal, then deep-fry in medium hot oil until golden brown.

Hi Sonia,
If I freeze the curry puffs after wrapping, do I have to thaw before frying them? Or can I fry the puffs in their frozen state? Thanks.

Ann Low said...

I love curry puff but seldom deep fry at home. Will bookmark this recipe for kid's birthday.

Jeannie Tay said...

Long time didn't eat this traditional local karipap already...now always buy the spiral type from a nice kiosk in Mid Valley:) Looking at yours make me want to give this a try too.

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

anonymous, you have to thaw the frozen curry puff first, but not completely thaw otherwise it will be too soft to be handled.

Baby Sumo said...

Looks wonderful, Sonia! Wonder if we can bake this instead of deep fry?

Lite Home Bake said...

One of my favorite tea time snacks, never get bored of them. Nice having homemade ones :)
