650 grams Yellow Potatoes, boiled, peeled & small diced
3 Tbsp of Vegetable Oil
1 Large Yellow Onion, peeled & chopped
3 ½ Tbsp Curry Powder
1 Tbsp Chili Powder
1 tsp Chicken Granules
1 Small Handful of Curry Leaf
About 6 to 7 Tbsp of Water
Sea Salt to taste
4 Cups (480 grams) All-Purpose Flour
1 tsp Sea Salt
½ Cup of Vegetable Oil
2 Tbsp Unsalted Butter
½ Cup of Water
For the filling: Heat oil and stir-fry the onion until soften and golden brown in color. Add the curry leaves, curry powder, chili powder, and stir-fry until the mixture is fragrant. Then add the potatoes, give it a good stir, and mix in the water. Season the potatoes with chicken granules, sea salt, and mix well and set it aside to cool.
For the dough/pastry: Combine the flour and sea salt in a large mixing bowl. Heat the oil and butter until very hot. Then gradually add the oil to the flour, and stir well with a wooden spoon or spatula. Mix in the water and knead well. (If the dough is too dry, add a little extra water at a time) Let the dough rest for about ½ an hour.
To make the curry puffs: Roll out the dough, and cut into 4 inches circles in diameter. Spoon about 1 Tbsp of filling into the center of the pastry, fold over to meet the opposite site and press the edges together to seal. To pleat the edges, flatten one end of the edge, with your finger, pull it out, and then push in the dough forward. Repeat all round the edges until a “rope” is form.
Put the oil for deep-frying in a pan or wok over medium heat. Fry the curry puff in batches, till golden brown. Drain on kitchen paper and serve hot.
