Curry Puff / Tea-time Snack

Curry Puff / Tea-time Snack

Curry Puff is a deep-fried tea-time snack, which is available in all the nook and corner of the streets of Malaysia. Curry Puff being my favorite when I was in Malaysia, most of the time it would be my tea-time snack. Curry Puff is a deep-fried puff, where the stuffing is prepared by using potato. In Curry Puff, the outer coating is made of All-purpose flour (maida), kneaded with water, salt and little oil. Stuffing adds more taste to the Curry Puff, it resembles the taste of potato masala but more spiciness and little more flavored with curry powder.

Coming to Deep Fried snack, most of us avoid it, due to the cholesterol content and the risk of heart diseases, but recently I came across Emami Healthy and Tasty which has wide range of oil. Among their varieties I got to try Emami Tasty and Healthy – Refined Rice Bran oil and Kachi Ghani Mustard Oil
