Recipe: Malaysian Currypuff

Vegetarian karipap with spiral pastry

Spiral pastry (refer to the original recipe for instructions).

Oil dough:
125gm all purpose flour
30gm butter
70ml vegetable oil

Water dough:
225gm all purpose flour
110ml water

Potato filling (Vegetarian)
3 medium size potato
1 large onion
1 tbsp curry powder
1/4 tsp cumin powder
1/4 tsp chili powder (not very spicy, would increase it to 1/2 tsp on my next try)
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp sugar

1. Heat 2 tbsp vegetable oil in pan, and saute cubed onion
2. Put curry power, cumin power, chili power in a bowl and add some water to form paste. Add the paste to the pan when onion has soften. Stir fry until aromatic.
3. Add potato to the pan, stir around for a couple of minutes.
4. Add enough water to cover all ingredients. Turn heat down to a simmer when boiled.
5. Add salt and sugar. Stir until potato has softened and paste is somewhat dry.

Chicken + potato karipap  (normal pastry, non spiral version)

Pastry (non spiral)
250g all purpose flour
2 tbsp vegetable oil
2 tbsp butter
125ml cold water

1. Heat and melt butter and vegetable oil
2. Pour into flour and mix with a spatula
3. Add water slowly and knead

This pastry works well if you plan on consuming the puffs on the same day. They did not hold up well after a day. (Or maybe my karipap filling is too wet?? )

Chicken + potato filling:
Chicken meat from a quarter (I minced it, I would cube it the next time. Habi said he didn't even know there's chicken inside)
3 medium size potato
1 large onion
2 tbsp curry powder
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1 1/2 tsp chili powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar

Same instructions as the vegetarian version, only, remember to also add chicken meat when adding potato to the pan.

1. Roll out the dough to about 1/8 inch thick.
2. Using a round dough cutter or a bowl, cut out a piece of dough.
3. Place filling in the middle, then follow the instructions on youtube to seal the puff. Took me a couple tries before I got the hang of it during my trial run, which I forgot again a week later when I was making another batch for the potluck. But again, after a few tries, it came back.
