Indonesian Style Curry Puffs

This is my first time making curry puffs! The filling of this indonesian style curry puff is not the usual  spicy chicken/sardine which is commonly sold here. It has tanghoon (rice vermicelli) inside, along with some chicken meat, carrots and french beans...unusual isn't it? ^0^ and yes is not spicy too which is kids friendly. But I like some heat so I dip them with some sambal belacan! Yumz!!

Recipe source : ILove.ICook.IBake
Ingredient (12 curry puffs)
Dough :
  • 125gm plain flour

  12. Heat oil on high heat. Slide in the puffs (in batches), off the heat for awhile. Wait till the skin forms bumps then turn on the fire again. Deep fry on medium heat till golden brown.
