For the past few weeks I have been going to an Asian cookery class on a Tuesday morning at Betty’s house. Betty is a lovely local nana who on occasion drops and picks up her grandkids from school. She got chatting to some of the School Mums about her love of cooking and decided to put on a fortnightly cooking class in her house for any of the School Mums who wanted to come and learn some Asian cooking.
I always love this kind of grassroots connecting and random community stuff so decided I would go along.
This week we learnt to make some delicious and home made curry puffs which were super easy so I have shared on the blog (with Betty’s permission of course 🙂
Betty’s Curry Puff Recipe
500 Grams of Mince Beef (if vegetarian use sweet potatoes, peas and chick peas)
4 Large Potatoes, cut into small cubes
2 Large Onions Finely Chopped
2 Heaped tsp Curry Powder
3 Tsp Salt
1 Tsp Sugar
1-2 Tsp Oil for Frying
1 Packet of Puff Pastry Sheets (makes 30)
Cut potatoes into small cubes.
Cut onions into thinly sliced pieces.
Fry onion in oil until the onion is transparent.
Add 3 tsp of Salt.
Add 2 tsp of Curry Powder and stir through (do not let burn)
Add 500 Grams of mince and mix through.
Add 1 tsp of sugar and mix.
Add 4 large potatoes cut into cubes and mix through.
(Do not at any time add liquid)
Once mixed through put saucepan on a very low flame with lid on and cook for 20 minutes stirring occasionally.
Once cooked allow to cool a little then cut four circles to one sheet of puff pastry .
Fill each circle in the middle with the mince mixture and fold over and pinch to seal.
Once you have used all the mixure (around 30) brush with egg.
Put in a preheated oven at 180 degrees for half an hour.
Once cooked allow to cool a little then ENJOY!!
