Hi, My grandma used to make these peanut puffs, but none of us learnt it, would you share this recipie? It's very well done and lots of effort put into making the folds, just like my grands.

Hi

Thank you for the recipe. Just made some yesterday and it was the 4th time. They are great!

By the way, do u have a good curry puff pastry recipe? Tried a number of recipes but the crispiness does not last long.

Am looking for a recipe that is close to A1 - the cripsy curry puff in Spore!!

Thanks

Hi anonymous,

Have you tried using this recipe for your curry puff? They could great. Do let me know if you do try using it. I'm curious myself though I've not done it before.

Hi

Thanks for the suggestion.Tried the pastry with curry puff-filling such as chicken and potatoes. The curry puffs turned up very crispy.

i added 1 teaspoon of icing sugar and 1/4 teaspoon of salt to the pastry.

Hi Lucy,

I was just trying to look back at all your posting, and you have one of my favorite CNY cookies. However, I will not be able to have this in my house, as my older daughter has a severe peanut allergy. So, now I can only drool over the pictures...

Cheers,
Angelia

Hi Angelia,

Poor thing...deprived of eating the addictive peanuts. Better refrain your daughter from taking the peanuts otherwise she will suffer.

hi busy_shim
