Peanut Puff (Kok Chai)

I make some Peanut Puff (Kok Chai) for CNY.My mom was horrific when she see how big is my Peanut Puff!!.Well,I can't find the flour and butter that I like.I guess Malaysia only have one type of flour.I try to explain to my mom,about unbleached flour,all purpose flour and bleached flour,that same goes with unsalted butter,salted butter,spread and etc..
Look at my giant "kok chai"!!My mom bought 2 small puff mold from Chow Kit Road market but I don't know how to use it.I only know how to fold with my hand for the edge.

I used 300 gm flour,1oo gm spread(butter) 1/2 cup of cold water and a egg for the dough.I knead the dough with hand until it well blended.Then I wrapped the dough with plastic bag and store in the fridge for 30 min before wrapped it with the peanut filling.
My mom fried some fresh peanut for the filling.In Malaysia,everybody use rough sugar for the cooking or drinking .So I have to blend the rough until until fine before I can mixed it with the crush peanut.
My mom afraid to bring out my production for her guests to try.She said my "kok chai' is too big and ugly!!!..The skin is crunchy and crispy but my mom said it's too thick...."sob,sob,sob"
Well,what do you think of my creation??..

Your kok chai looks really pretty and crispy to me. But can't really tell how big is your kok chai though, no comparison with a coin or something. Aunty Lily made kok chai for her CNY party too and hers was really small and she also pleated by hands, wow at the work that went into making this!

I agreed with Belachan. I think your kok chai looks nice too as the edge is neatly done. Maybe you can put a 50 cents coin next your kok chai so that we can justify the size. Your kok chai makes me craving for curry puff now. Yum yum... :P

When I was young my mom makes karipok and kok chai to sell, for the dough she uses flour, cooking oil and salt water. I know she hates making kok chai coz if don't chubit properly the peanuts would leak out of the kok chai and a mess in the cooking oil. Your kok chai looks good
