Bake Curry Puffs
Curry Puffs fried or bake, it's always a favorite snack. Bake curry puffs uses puff pastry and is so flaky and crispy when baked. My family are fans of both versions of curry puffs. You can either use readymade puff pastry or diy your own. I'm using my own puff pastry i made yesterday. The filling is a simple potatoes, onions and curry filling.
