What is interesting about the Curry Puff?

A curry puff is a deep-fried or baked, semi-circular flaky pastry filled with curried fillings. The origins of this snack are mostly attributed to the influences of the British Cornish pasty, the Portuguese empanadas and the Indian samosas.  The Curry Puff is multicultural.  Likely originating in Singapore and Malaysia , the Curry Puff spread all around South east Asia.


How many types of curries are there?

There are new varieties of curry constantly being created with different combinations of spices and ingredients. However, it is well-established that there are hundreds of different types of curries originating from different regions around the world. Curry lovers can find anything from mild, creamy butter chicken curry to the fiery vindaloo curry originating from the western state of Goa in India.

Thai curries are also famous for their intense flavor and are typically made with a paste of fresh herbs, spices, and chili peppers. In Indonesia, the rendang curry is a slow-cooked beef curry with a rich, dry texture and heavy use of coconut milk and spices.

Other famous curries include the Japanese katsu curry, the Caribbean goat curry, and the African peanut curry. The beauty of curries is that they are customizable, and you can create your own unique recipe or recipe alterations according to your taste preferences.

Make ahead.  You can make your curry filling the night before and refrigerate.

Seal your Curry Puff.  Use a bit of water to seal the edges, and a fork to crimp the edges.  The egg wash will help the puffs become a beautiful golden brown.  You can bake the puffs in the oven or toaster oven.  Use a baking sheet lined with parchment for easy cleanup


Add protein.  A chicken curry filling can include chicken thighs cut into extra small pieces.  Cook your butter, onion, garlic and ginger first and then add your chicken and let it brown slightly before adding the vegetables, followed by stock and curry.

Mix up your vegetables in the Curry Puff filling.  Use the vegetables you love- Peas, Mushrooms, chick peas- sky is the limit

Pick Your Heat.  We love Golden Curry. You can buy the package in mild, medium, or hot in the International section of most grocery stores.  Curry is such a delicious and aromatic sauce.
