Now here's one of the recipe from my favourite Nyonya collection, "Curry Puffs".
I enjy most of the curry puffs selling outside, and i always hope to make those myself one day.
Yeah, this was the first time making curry puffs..;p Not bad ha! I'll give myself a thumbs up for this...;=p

60ml Cold Water

150g Onions (chopped)
80g Shallots (chopped)

3 tbsps Meat curry powder, mix with 1 tbsp of water into a paste
1 tbsp Chilli paste (optional)
150g Diced Chicken breast
200g Cooked potatoes (small cubes)
1 tsp Salt
1 tbsp, each..Sugar, cornflour

Somehow, after trying, i find my fillings are not spicy enough. So if you like, do add more chilli paste to spice up. Try it out and let me know how is it..;)
