Baked Curry Puffs



This was  my  maiden attempt at making  baked curry puffs and although it entailed a lot of standing, dividing and rolling out the dough, wrapping, etc. it was all worth the effort when everybody gave the thumbs up! 








Recipe for Baked Curry Puffs

    Ingredients for :-
    Water dough

    • 8 oz plain flour
    • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
    • 1/3 cup warm water
    • Pinch of salt
    Oil dough
    • 6 oz plain flour
    • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
    Filling
    • 400 gm chicken breast fillet, diced
    • 1 potato - diced
    • 1 onion - diced
    • A1 curry paste or others as preferred.  (amount as desired)
    • Salt to taste
    Egg glaze   -  1 egg yolk + 1 tsp water

    Method for Water dough
    1. Sift the flour and salt into a mixing bowl, mix in the oil and water slowly to make into a non-sticky dough.  Cover and let rest for 30 mins.
    Method for Oil dough
    1. Sift the flour into a mixing bowl, mix in oil to form a non-sticky dough.  Cover and let rest for 30 mins.
    Method for Filling
    1. Saute the onion with some  curry paste, shallow fry till fragrant. 
    2. Add in the chicken followed by the potato. Fry till cooked.
    3. Add salt to taste. 
    4. Dish out and set aside
    Note :  It's best to prepare this filling a day ahead, keep refrigerated till ready for use.

    Method
    1. Divide the two pieces of dough equally into 24 portions.  
    2. Insert a piece of oil dough into a piece of  water dough.  Shape into a ball.
    3. Roll out a ball of dough into an oblong, then roll up  like a swiss roll.
    4. Roll out the 'swiss roll', then roll up again, lengthwise.
    5. Flatten the rolled up dough upright and roll out into a round, put in some filling, wrap up and seal the edges.
    6. Continue this process for the rest of the balls of dough but keep them covered with a damp cloth while waiting to prevent them from drying up.
    7. Apply egg glaze and place them onto a parchment lined baking tray.
    8. Bake in a preheated oven @ 180 deg C for 20 to 25 mins. or till golden brown.
    9. Let cool in tray for about 10 mins. before transferring them to cool completely on a wire rack.
    10. Yield :  24 chicken curry puffs.

  4. Hi Cheah, curry puffs, sardine puffs are my nephews' favourite but I always put off doing it cos' of deep frying. Baking it is a good option. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Cheah, I am bookmarking this recipe! It's good you put up the photo of how to roll the dough, if not I would be so blur :) It's better to bake rather than fry.

  10. Dear Cheah,

    I love baking curry puffs because I prefer savoury over sweet snacks although I find it easier to buy puff pastry from the supermarket than making my own.

    1. I do agree with you. Very much less work indeed!

  11. I'm echoing everyone's sentiment - baking it is a much better option than deep frying. It looks beautiful Cheah, scrumptious! I love the glaze too, add a nice sheen to it, and certainly doesnt have that greasy look. God job!

  12. These curry puffs look so crumbly! Like the idea of using vegetable oil to make the dough.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Vegetable oil should be less fatty and the result is also satisfactory.

  16. Hi Cheah, the curry puffs look super good! Just wondering if the pastry is the crumbly type or bake-crispy? I have been searching for a good crispy baked curry puff pastry! Thought of trying out yours!

    ReplyDelete

    1. It's oil and water dough pastry. Don't quite understand your version of crumbly type or bake-crispy. If you want to save time, you can make bigger ones, so you'll get about 12 pieces.

  17. Hi,
    Just happen to find your blog...this recipe looks so good....I’d like to try but want to ensure I got the right measurement for the plain flour. Is the oz unit for plain flour for the dough is in fluid oz (same as 1 cup) or in weigh?

    ReplyDelete
  18. How much in grams is 8oz or 6oz of plain flour? Is the oz used in your recipe in mass (weight) or fluid (volume)?
    I want to try this recipe but need to figure out the right measurement for the ingredient first. Thanks!

German Butter Cookies CNY 2015 ~ 德国牛油曲奇

These cookies certainly do not need much introduction as they have been circulating among food blogs for quite some time, more so at this time of the year.   I've bookmarked this since last year and only had the time to make them now.  I made some plain ones as well as marbled ones. There are other flavours as well but for the time being, I can only make do with these.  Also this will be my last post before I take a break to celebrate the Lunar Chinese New Year with my family, relatives and friends.

I was quite sceptical to try this Salted Egg cookie recipe with an addition of curry leaves but I was surprisingly pleased with the end product.   It is indeed difficult to describe the taste of these cookies except that they do have an appetising flavour.  But one thing for sure, the sweet smell of salted egg and curry leaves will linger in your kitchen for quite a while.  Check it out here for a simple and easy Salted Egg cookie recipe.

Salted egg yolk cookies ~ 咸蛋黄酥饼 ~ CNY 2016

Salted egg yolk recipes are getting very popular these days.  There are salted egg yolk with crabs, salted egg yolk with chicken, salted egg yolk with bittergourd and salted egg yolk bun, just to name a few.  Being the inquisitive me, I tried baking the salted egg yolk cookies just to taste what's it like.   It's quite difficult to describe the taste, it's neither totally sweet nor totally savoury, it's a blend of both which makes it unique, yet delicious.


I like the small bits of salted egg yolk in the dough.  I let the dough rest in the refrigerator for more than 2 hours and it was more pliable to handle.
