Salam, Kia Ora...

Happy Monday everyone ;)  I'm still on a mission to finish 2 more kumaras~~sweet potatoes that have sprouted roots.  The menu that I chosed today is curry puffs ahakks....but I only used 1 kumara :(  I still have 1 more left.  Haven't got a clue what I should do with it at this moment.

I supposed its just gonna be a short and sweet entry today as I haven't got much to report...hehehez.  Don't have to describe much how a curry puff should taste like, I'm sure everyone knows it.  I got the pastry recipe from As @ Teratak NurKasih.  Wonders why my curry puffs pastry didn't turned out as smooth as hers...hehehez??    Anyway, enjoy the recipe ;)

PS : I was watching the 6 o'clock news while posting this entry.  The headline today:  A young woman was found burned to death at the side of a road.  Her husband has fled to Fiji with their son on the day her body was found.  Haiiizzz how can a human have the heart to do that?  It must have been a painful death for her :( *tsk* *tsk*...




Ingredients for Fillings :
  • 3 medium sized potatoes
  • 1 sweet potato
  • 1 large onion
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 2 inches ginger
  • Dried anchovies - a handful
  • Minced beef - a handful
  • 1.5 tblsp curry powder
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder

  • Blend onion, garlic, ginger and anchovies until fine.
  • Heat oil in wok and stir fry the blended ingredients & curry leaves till fragrant.
  • Add curry & turmeric powder and a little bit of water to form a paste and fry further till fragrant.
  • Add minced beef and cover wok, stirring occasionally until beef are cooked.
  • Add boiled potatoes & sweet potato and stir until well incorporated.  Add salt & pepper. 
  • Simmer for abt 5 minutes and turn fire off.
  • Let filling cools down.

Ingredients for Pastry : (Makes 20 pcs)
  • 250g Standard Flour
  • 4 tblsp Hot Oil
  • A pinch of Salt
  • Water (Amount depends on flour)
Method :
  • Put flour in a large bowl.
  • Pour hot oil into flour and stir with a spoon as it is very hot.
  • Add salt to water and add water to flour little by little until a dough is formed.
  • Rest dough for 20 mins.
  • Roll our skin dough into 3 mm thick and cut into 4" round shape. Wrap up fillings and form into the shape of curry puff.
  • Seal the opening tightly and pleat it or you can seal it by using a fork.
  • Deep fry curry puffs in hot oil until golden brown.



Enjoy the week everyone.......

Tengok Anie buat karipap baru teringat dah lama akak tak buat. Tapi akak suka karipap inti sadin.

Just once in my lifetime I tried to make the karipap. Teruk betul ek tapi bila my aunty buat, I suka tolong bab mengelim. Bolehlah tahan cantiknya, auwww..

I sebut tepung bawang/tembosa for karipap. We always use rempah kurma, kentang, sadri, bawang n minced meat for its filling.

Anie,

Anie said...

Nieza,

Tenkiu Nieza ;) I pun mmg malas nak buat, tapi nak mkn punya pasal buat ajer lah...hehehez

Anie said...

Yat,

Alamak ni lagi satu kasi I jeles arh. Boleh main order ajer dgn kakak hmmmphh...hehehez. Actually biler I dkt SG, I dont mind yg frozen punya yg jual dkt NTUC/Giant.

Kesian arh u babe :( Keje dgn CB & MFs dkt office. I last time also keje bermati2an. Nasib blom ada family...mak yg masak. Balik keje, I mmg takde mood nak buat benda lain. Terbongkang ajer tido...baju sendiri pun tak larat nak cuci...hahahaz. I really salute u babe!!

Sabar jer lah, mkn ajalah utk hilangkan stress....hehehez ;)

Anie said...

Kak Aidah,

Tu arh kak, I pun lama tak buat sampai hb request. I also suka sardines...tapi hb no like lah :(

Anie said...

Somuffins,

Mmg arh si karipap ni byk keje. My mom can do it free hand w/out the acuan. I kalau buat free hand cfm terkangkang2 the kelim :( buruk rupanya...hahahaz :)

Oh ok....the Indians here have the same shape thingy and called them samosa. Tapi tak sesedap karipap kita ahakkkss. Rempah kurma is better, tak pedas tapi I takde stock...kesian Jannah mkn karipap pedas. Tapi dia tak kisah, handal ajer I tgk dia handle kepedasan....:D

Anie said...

Maya...

Tu arh dia boleh termasok frame plak...amik ajer lah :D

Hi Zhu ;)

How's ur CNY preparation? Lucky u still dont have to giveaway hong baos this yr? hehehez.

Yeah I knew abt OCK selling Chix wings...and even nasi lemak now ahakks. I had them when I went back to sg many moons ago ahakks :D

R u watching WGM 1 or 2?? The lettuce couple? Arent they from WGM 1? Hmmmm dunno if there's WGM 2 anyway hahahaz. Yeah I noe abt the kimbaps and ramen :D :D

cny preparations always leave it to mommy : D i just have to give her a big ang bao hehehez , may likely meet a few of my immediate family members that is abt it. I have a friend who's coming to singapore cny, so i will visit Marina Bay Sands Casino Huat !! $100 levy on Singaporean. :)) read in yahoo news casino employees cannot take MC in CNY or they'll be punished.

I started to watch WGM 1 yesterday cuz of ur reply & HJ too. Pace is kinda slow, I feel like I am watching a drama rather than a reality show :/ maybe im just too tired.

Yes, there is WGM 2, the 3 couples looks more compatiable, and I LOVE the Adam couple XD

hope to talk to u soon on FB chat, maybe? ;]

Anie said...

Zhu,

What I meant is for urself lah. Dont tell me u leave it to mumma to buy u new clothes for the new yr. :ppppp

Yeah I read abt MBS gonna impose demerit points to their employess if anyone were to take MC and the MOM is not liking it....but 250 of their employees were on MC for New Year, I supposed its good that they have this measures to accomodate the big spenders this CNY.

But....WTH!!! $100 levy for s'poreans?? That's unfair isnt it?? Why so much?? What happened to the money then?? Issshhhh...am not too happy with some religious political issues going on there as well but its not best to discuss abt the issues here ^_^

My FB chat status is always online but u r never online whenever I am online ahakkksss confusing isnt it? Oh well hope to catch up with u soon. Take care....;)

mommy is too busy wif her mahjong games rather than buying new clothes for me :P I will get myself a new pair of running shoes & the dreaded spring cleaning...

religious political issues? :/ ur refering to Lee Kuan Yew recent comments? I apologise to u on his behalf ^_^ Peace! But Im really curious why ur so worked up :P

$100 levy is a measurement to stop gambling addiction, $ probably go to paying the wages of the dealers so I will spend 24 hours in casino to win it back hahaha.. Maybe I should go to universal studios ticket $72 all attractions

heard of http://www.tumblr.com/, it looks pretty neat to blog over there too. u might want to chk it out too? :D

Looking forward to ur next receipe : ) Take care!
