Curry with a little ‘Puff’!

Curry-Puffs

My grandma made these when I was growing up and we all LOVED them, there is nothing like the smell of curry simmering and pastry baking.  I make these about once a month and freeze half into little snap lock bag for easy lunches – or unexpected visitors.  This is my version.

Ingredients

1/2 kilo of beef mince

250grams of diced bacon

2 teaspoons of garlic

1 tablespoon of Vindaloo paste

1-2 teaspoons of curry powder

1 teaspoon of sugar

1 brown onion

1 can of peas (drained)

1 can of diced tomatoes

Vegetables (diced)

I use whatever I have left in the fridge, this batch pictured has a finely diced red capsicum,1  zucchini, 11/2 a sweet potato and some leftover beans)

Salt and Pepper to taste

1 pack of pampas puff pastry (or you can make your own)

2 eggs (beaten)

 

Method

Brown the onion, add bacon and diced vegetables and sauté in a teaspoon of good quality butter or olive oil.  Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.  Put the lid on the pan and leave to simmer for a few hours – going to back to stir occasionally.  If the mixture becomes to wet then remove the lid and allow the sauce to reduce.

Let the mixture cool.

On a flat surface, put your defrosted pastry sheets out and cut in half, paint the edges in beaten egg, then add the mixture and fold the pastry over.  Using a fork, press the corners down until the pastry is sealed with the mixture inside.  Paint the whole puff in egg.  Lay a sheet of baking paper on your oven tray for your curry parcels and cook on 180-200 for 15-20 minutes – check on them in 15, and pull them out of the oven once they are golden.

Enjoy!
