Curry puff, a popular local snack I never get tired of eating since childhood. It can be eaten as breakfast, afternoon tea snack wherever its available.
With my hubby away for several day on business trip, my maid and I would usually make something simple rather than proper meal. For me, I would settle for ready made biscuits to go along with coffee or go instant noodles, like my maid, who is 'Indo Mie' queen. It seems, lots of indonesian thrives on eating instant noodles. This explains why Indonesia is the world's largest producer of instant noodles. Unlike us, they buy instant noodles by the cartons for home consumption.
As in the case of my maid, she prefers eating instant noodles than the wide array of freshly cooked dishes available at home. I suppose their culture is very much into instant noodles. Today when she heard me mentioning about making curry puffs, she returned back the packet of Indomie she originally planned to have for lunch. Hmmm, the curry puff is tempting enough for her to forego the mee.
Lucky that, or else I would ended up 20+ pcs of curry puffs with no one to help clearing.

Repeat the process with the remaining doughs and ingredients.
For deep frying, heat sufficient oil in a deep frying pan and slide in the curry puffs in batches. When the puffs floats up to the surface and turn golden brown, it is ready.

To fry with air fryer, preheat the fryer at 180C degrees for 5 mins. Arrange the curry puffs into the air fryer tray，spray the curry puff surface with a thin coat of cooking oil and set it to frying mode at 180C degrees for 20 mins. Turn the curry puffs in the fryer tray every 5 mins to ensure the puffs are evenly brown.
