Veggie Curry Puff (Thai Style)

For the Filling:
2 small Potatoes (diced) 
1 onion (finely chopped)
2 tablespoons mushroom sauce
2 tablespoons chicken broth or water
20 g butter 
1 tablespoon olive oil 
1 tablespoon curry powder 
a pinch of salt
Another veggie filling of mine: Shiitake & white sesame!
hmmmm...heavenly, irresistibly yummm!:)
  • Melt the butter in a medium frying pan. 
  • Add in olive oil and cook the onion with low heat, stirring, until tender. 
  • Add diced potatoes, mushroom sauce and stir well, until just cooked. 
  • Season with curry powder and a pinch of salt. Leave to cool.  
Pastry (a)
70 g flour
2 tablespoons + 2 teaspoons vegetable oil (I use Olive oil)
  • Sift the flour into a small bowl. Make a well in the centre and add in vegetable oil. Use a spatula to mix the ingredients together, then with a little help of a hand, to knead the dough to bring it together. Shape the dough into 10 small balls.
Pastry (b)
130 g flour
3 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
3 tablespoons cold water
1 teaspoon caster sugar
a pinch of salt
  • Mix sugar, salt into cold water. Stir well until they dissolve. Sift the flour into a bowl. Make a well in the centre and add in vegetable oil, ready-mixed cold water. Use a spatula to mix all the ingredients together, then use a hand to knead the dough for a minute to bring it together. Please do not knead too many times as it will thicken the pastry. Divide the dough into 10 bigger balls. 
  • Roll out pastry (b) into a circle, then place pastry (a) in the centre and cover it completely. Repeat with the rest of the balls (picture #1-4). Cover them with moist tea-towel and leave for 15 minutes. 
  • Roll out the pastry with up-down direction (as demonstrated on picture #5). 
  • Then roll in the pastry with your fingers (picture #6).
  • Rotate the rolled pastry into vertical direction, then roll out again (picture #7-8).
  • Roll in the you have 1 shorter roll. Cut it into 2 pieces (picture # 9-10) 
  • Pull the pastry lap to the top. (in order that when you roll out again, the lap won't come out of the pastry) Then roll out the pastry in an oval shape or round shape
    (picture # 11-12). 
  • Add 1-2 teaspoon(s) potato filling. Press and cover the edge with your fingertips or a fork.
  • Heat vegetable oil in a heavy based medium saucepan with low heat until hot. 
  • Add the pastry and fry until light brown. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
  Enjoy your weekend with your loved ones!     
As for me, really enjoyed watching a classic film called "The Apartment" :-)
