Potato curry puff recipe

DSC04818

Curry Puff is one of my favorite foods/snacks in Singapore ever since I lived there for 9 years. I used to eat this for breakfast, snack or even dinner! It’s also one of my pregnancy craves nowadays and since I wouldn’t be able to get it here, my friend had made few puffs for me last month and I also tried to make it myself yesterday, thanks to her recipe that I slightly modified to my liking. It turns out great and taste great too! So I decided to share my recipe on my blog today. This is a simple potato puff recipe. In Singapore, there’s few kinds and has some variations to the filling. You could add a slice of egg and also shredded chicken to it, but I prefer my old plain potato filling.

Ingredients (for filling):

-4 potato (any kinds, I used organic), peeled and boiled for 15 minutes.

-Curry Paste for seafood or meat (please get the Malaysian ones, instead of Indian spices).

-Curry Leaves (optional).

-Chilli powder (optional, you could add if you prefer it to be spicy)

Ingredients (for pastry):

-2 cup all purpose flour

-1/2 cup melted butter

-8 tbsp water (or more if it’s too dry, I never measured this, I add as I mix the dough).

Instructions:

1. Once the boiled potato are cooled, diced it into small pieces. Heat oil in a saucepan and put all the potatoes in. Add the sauce and curry leaves and mixed well. Add a little bit of water (1/2cup) to soften the potatoes even more and also to mix well with the spices. Cover and let it sit until the water absorbed into the mix and the potato soften (I did this for probably 5 min). DSC04813

2. Pour the hot melted butter into the flour. Using hand or wooden spon, mix them well until they form like a dry crumbs. Add in water and keep mixing until it forms a dough. Dough must be rubbery and not sticky. If sticky it means too much water added.

3. Use a rolling pin, roll the dough into the flat surface and cut into circles (I’m using a bowl to form the circle). Insert the filling and close it up by pinching the edges (this tutorial could be easily found in youtube).

It’s a weekend baking time and I’m loving this strawberry cupcake with the cream cheese frosting. I got the recipe online and excited to share it here:

2 1/3 cups plain flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1 cups caster sugar
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2/3 cup milk

 

extras:

strawberry jam
cream cheese, roll into small cubes (to be inserted inside the cupcake)
Fresh strawberries  and sprinkles (for decoration)

 

Frosting ingredients:

 8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter, softened
2 1/2 cups icing sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoons milk
 

To make:

1. Beat the butter in a mixing bowl, add sugar, eggs and vanilla altogether for approx. 2 mins
2. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, salt and baking powder
3. Mix the dry and wet ingredients together with milk and slowly stir for probably 30 seconds.
4. Preheat oven at 175 °C and begin lining up your papercup into the cupcake mold/baking pan.
5. Pour the batter into the mold about half of the cup. This is the part where you add the strawberry jam and the cream cheese. Scoop about 1 teaspoon jam and also insert the cream cheese cube. After that, pour the batter to cover the fillings.
6. Bake for 25 mins and put aside once done, let it chill to room temperature and start to make the cream cheese frosting.
7. Mix all the ingredients for the frosting. Beat for 1 min. Pour the mix inside a frosting gun and begin to decorate the cupcake.

Hope you all enjoy the recipe and have a nice weekend!

Nutella cluster

There will be a potluck tomorrow at church and since the main course has been provided by them, I decided to contribute by making a simple treat like this Nutella cluster. It’s so easy to make and such a fun little treat that I think will also perfect to be served on a house party or for other gathering.
