EGG CURRY PUFFS FROM SCRATCH

Egg Curry Puffs from scratch Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com


It was a long time, I have make these curry puffs.  Presently, the store bought puffs are sky rocketing in price,  So it is time to make your own.

These Egg Curry Puffs from scratch are time consuming but worth to make.  They consist of two parts, the pastry and the filling.

Most popular filling was potato but I want to try something different that won't take much time to prepare.  I chose these Egg Curry Puffs, made with eggs, onion and spices,

Managed to shorten prep time for filling but important task are rolling, filing and frying them.  If you think this method was too much of hassle,  opt for a special mould that seal and crimp the edges well. But I still did it manually.

Be careful when adding ice water,   add little by little until it forms into a dough.  Find the pastry crispier than my earlier attempt where I did not add rice flour.

When frying these Egg Curry Puffs from scratch. make sure to use medium heat or else  they browned fast but inside still uncooked.  Do not crowd the pan, once it turns golden brown on both sides, remove and place on kitchen towel to drain.

Looks like Karangi (a Maharashtrian delicacy) but I am sure this would taste just as good as a Karangi

My mother used to make something similar, but with a fish filling. I'm going to try with the eggs, though, it sounds delicious.
