Deep Fried Chicken 'Kuo Rou' & Curry Sweet Potato Puff

Yes, more local food and snacks on the way. This is one of many street food of Malaysia called as curry puff. The small ones cost about RM1 for 3 pieces without any meat, RM1.00-1.50 per piece with meat. And large ones like mine cost about $2.00 per piece. Too bad, mine are not for sale! haha....

All this while only deep fried curry tuna, chicken & beef puffs available in the market but not something more to Chinese version. I mean something unsual to enjoy. So, I'm making something wild today. Are you ready for this? Here we go.

(6) finally, add in thickening and simmer untill thickened.

Remember how I learn to make my pleating when I was little. I used to steal a little bit of my mom's homemade noodle dough to play with. Well, NO playdough available at the time! So, what else am I expecting! I'll normally watch my neighbours making their goodies from outside the window. And practised the handwork on my play dough all by myself. Cool huh! It was fun. Children's today are too busy to do such a thing. Probably, they think it's time wasting.

So, the best advice I can give to my children was "learn whatever you can when you're still young cause you'll never know what will end up in one day, the only thing is be tough whatever you're facing and be a better man"!
I'm sending this to Shaz @ Muhibbah Malaysian Monday event.

  32. Oooh, very interesting filling and such pretty puffs. I remember asking my mum to let me have a go at pleating curry puffs too when I was younger. My kids begged to fold wantan the other day, so I gave in, surprisingly all the wantan turned out pretty good, even though slightly lopsided :)
