Karipop! Karipop!

Karipop or Kalipop is curry puff. It is the Singlish way of saying it. Singlish being Singaporean English.

Curry puff is a snack made of dough deep fried with a curry filling. It was sold when I was a child by men on bicycles shouting out as they cycled down your lane  or by old ladies laden with baskets of these yummy delights at the beach. They are not spicy or chillie hot at all. There were chicken curry, potato curry or sardine curry puffs.

They are still sold today in Singapore but in shops and they can be eaten at anytime of the day. Truly scrumptious and awfully bad for you!

I made mine with potato curry with Deemaspice.

I made 12 with 1 sheet of puff pastry. Ok, I cheated but if I was to make the dough I would never bother!

400g chopped potatoes - quite small and par boiled.
1 onion and 2 garlic cloves chopped.
Handful of curry leaves.
2 tsps of Deemaspice.
Chilli - dry or fresh (chopped)

Fry the onion, garlic, and curry leaves.
Put in the half cooked potatoes.
Then Deemaspice and fry till fragrant.
You will need to add salt and then add the chillie to your taste.

I made 12 circles from the puff pastry (you can make more or less whatever you wish).

Put some of the curry into the middle and fold over to form a half moon. Squash the ends with a fork and glaze with egg.

Then deep fry till golden brown. You can also bake them - not sure for how long though.

Lai lai! (come come in Chinese) Karipop! Karipop!
