Curry puffs or Asian pies are a favorite for many of us. It was made with flaky pastry, stuffed with curried potato and deep fried until golden brown. But now they came with variety of fillings like sardine, minced meat and hard boiled egg.
Nowadays, most people resort to buying from the malls instead of preparing them from scratch. It was tricky and time consuming affair.
I have seen a few of my friend making curry puffs using instant roti prata so this is a nice chance to try my hand making them. First of all, you need to prepare the filling and let it cool. My filling are made using mashed potato and cooked green peas. You can even substitute the filling according to your preference .
Most importantly, do not leave the prata too long at room temperature, it becomes sticky and hard to handle. You can start cutting and shaping immediately after you've removed them from a freezer.
If instant prata is not available. you can still make these piping hot snack using puff pastries. Baking the puff is also a healthier option as it removes excess oil and fat.
