Curry Puffs

I have a recipe for vegetable curry puffs I would like to try, it includes a recipe for the pastry. Would like to buy the pastry, what would be the best type and also hope to spray them and cook in the oven instead of frying, your experiences would help on this. thanks

I dont think you will get quite the same result as you would if you were deep frying them. Making the pastry really is quite easy.

5 tablespoons oil
1 medium red onion (finely chopped)
1/2 teaspoon kurma powder or chicken curry powder
2 teaspoons meat or chicken curry powder
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
1/2 cup of finely diced chicken breast meat
2 large potatoes (boiled and finely diced)
1 1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt


1 lb plain flour
5 oz margarine or shortening
3/4 cup water
1/2 teaspoon of salt


Make the filling first. Heat oil and fry onion gently until golden brown. Add the kurma powder, curry powder, chili, turmeric and fry gently. Add the chicken, potatoes, sugar, pepper, salt and cook for 5 minutes. Mix well and leave aside to cool.

To make pastry, mix flour with margarine, water, salt, and knead well. Let it rest for 1/2 hour. Cut the dough into circles (3 in) in diameter. Fold pastry over to make a half circle and crimp at edges. Deep fry in hot oil until golden.
