I make about 25 medium size curry puff with my recipe.I only fried 6-8 pieces at each tea time.The remaining I store in freezer by stacking each layer with wax paper. Whenever you feel like eating this special snack bring straight out from freezer and deep fry.Remember don't let the frozen puff stay too long in room temperature!.I did not add chili paste ,only curry powder and Elliot who don't like spicy or curry food love this puff!!
Only elastic water dough (B) can wrap around (A) oil dough and not vice verse!.This snack is suitable to eat at teatime or breakfast with a cup of hot coffee or tea.
