I am always looking for new foods to try, and let me tell you, these curry puffs are among my favorites! These light and flaky filled treats are the perfect snack or appetizer.
I made them for a small dinner party that I hosted, but you could just make them to snack on at home. They’re delicious and really simple to make.
What Are Curry Puffs?
Curry puffs, or Karipap, are popular snacks throughout Singapore and Malaysia. Originated in Southeast Asia, these little pies are filled with curry, chicken and potatoes traditionally.
I’ve omitted the potatoes in this recipe. These tasty little pies are filled with chicken, pickled onion, curry, carrots and a host of other seasonings.
Do You Fry Curry Puffs?
You can fry them, and many people do. However, I made these in the oven and they came out just as tasty as deep fried ones, and they’re healthier.
The puff pastry makes them perfect for baking because it gets flaky and delicious however you cook it.
What Do You Serve With Curry Puffs?
Curry puffs are an appetizer technically, so you really don’t need anything to serve with them. However, if you are doing a dinner party or party and you want some great ideas of foods that will complement your curry puffs, of course I have suggestions.
If you plan to serve these as an appetizer before your main course, I recommend following your curry puffs with this spicy fried shrimp with Asian slaw.
