Curry Puffs and Pies

This weekend’s project is curry puffs. Hubby prepared 2 fillings: curry chicken and sardines.

Curry chicken

Sardines.

Both are yummy on its own. If I make my own buns, I believe they would make delicious fillings.

To prepare, I read up about crimping (see side bar for links), but found it harder than it looks. Lack of a suitable sized cutter for the curry puff, as well as the hot weather (makes it tough to roll out the dough), I decide to make pies and rolls instead.

Unbaked sardine puff. The only one with a nicer crimping.

A baked sardine puff. Need to improve on the glazing.

Mixture of sardine puffs, sardine pies and sardine rolls. The rolls and pies are glazed with milk and produced a matt finish. The puffs are glazed with egg yolk, which produces a shinier finish, but was cracked. Maybe the oven was too hot…

The curry chicken pie. For such a rustic pie, need to bake on a baking sheet, rather than a pie dish. Baked a little too long and therefore burnt the lattice tops 😦

Some notes:

  • The temperature dial was between 160 and 190 deg C mark. I baked the puffs, rolls and mini pies for 20 min and the big pie for 30 min.
  • The lattice covering for the curry chicken pie prevented the eggs from being too rubbery. To consider putting the eggs in the middle of the filling if not covering the filling.
