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.

Curry Filling

  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 Medium yellow onion finely diced
  • 2 tbsp garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp ginger minced
  • 1 ½ cup Potatoes finely diced
  • cup Sweet Potatoes finely diced
  • 3/4 cup carrot shredded
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 1 1/2 cubes Golden Curry - Curry Roux -Medium Heat (Adjust to Spice level to preference-Mild, Med, Hot) Finely chopped
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • 1 sleeve Puff Pastry
  • 1 egg Beaten for egg wash


Making Curry

  • Over medium heat, cook onion, ginger, garlic, and butter till fragrant
  • Add potatoes, carrots, and vegetable stock.
  • Stir to prevent burning
  • When the stock is warm, add chopped curry roux and reduce heat to low
  • Mix until curry sauce is thick and cook on low for 10-15 minutes, until potatoes and carrots are cooked through
  • Turn off heat then refrigerate for at least 3 hours

Assembling curry puff

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  • Beat egg in a separate ramekin
  • Lay out puff pasty
  • Cut dough into nine even squares (like making a tic tac toe board)
  • Fill each square in its center with 1 teaspoon of chilled filling
  • Bring one corner to its diagonal opposite corner to create the pastry triangles and seal along the seam. Stretch dough while filling/ Seal edges. Use the flat edges of a fork to score the edges with small lines.
  • Place each pastry on a greased baking sheet
  • Brush the egg wash along the top of each puff

  • Bake the curry puffs at 400 degrees for 17-20 minutes, or until golden brown
  • Give the puffs a few minute to cool
  • Plate and serve


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.
