Home-made Curry Puffs

Our friend from London who runs the Bread Story came to visit and stay with us over the weekend. She and my wife had agreed prior to make home-made curry puffs. One of my favourite snacks is the curry puff and hence I could not wait for the finished product.

It started with the trip to Sainsburys to buy some of the ingredients; others our friend had brought with her. They had decided to make mainly chicken curry puffs, but also sardine puffs as well; it was the chicken curry puffs that I was looking forward to eat.

I was told by my wife that there is a lot of effort involved, making the pastry (two dough – one that is butter based and the other that is water based), cooking the filling, making the individual parcels that are the curry puffs etc. But once completed they do look very inviting indeed.

Next phase is to deep fry them until they are nicely browned up, which does not take very long.

I have to say that they are delicious and my two daughters would agree as they both ate their fair share of these.

Not to be outdone, my youngest daughter made her own pastry, filled them with the filling and shaped them into smaller curry puffs – pretty impressive from an 8 year old I would say.

I do love the curry puff, and I could eat these all the time, but it will probably not help me with losing weight though.
