Aunty Julie's Curry Puff

I got this curry puff recipe from Bessie (Thanks Bessie and Aunty Julie for this lovely recipe), the lovely wife of my hometown church's pastor. The church had a cooking demo by a nice lady - Aunty Julie (my ex-church mate too ^_^), she demonstrated how to make curry puff, it triggers my urge to try out this recipe.

As i wasn't able to be there to see the demo, i can only count on my own 'common sense' to do it. The pastry pleating part was the most difficult one, i had to go youtube to get some idea on how to do the pleating. I have succeeded! even though it came out with all shapes and sizes...hahahha... not too bad though for the first timer i reckon....*thick skin*

These curry puffs are so yummy,i let my neighbour try some (this is the first time they try curry puff) they just love it!

The texture of this pastry is very crispy, the taste very close to the IKEA's curry puff in Damansara.



Here you go the yummiest curry puff recipe....
