2 large potatoes (boiled and diced)
1 medium red onion (finely chopped)

Curry mix - mix together with 1/2 cup of water to make paste
2 tablespoon of meat or chicken curry powder

1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup of water

2 Hard Boiled Eggs (quartered)

60gm Shortening
20gm Sugar
4gm Salt
140gm Water

Pastry Dough B (Inner) - knead into a dough

Simple steps :

1. Make the filling first. Heat oil in pan and fry onion till fragrant. Add the curry paste mixture and stir fry till fragrant. make sure fire is low to prevent from burning. Add the chicken, potato sugar, salt and a dash of pepper. Add water and cook for 5 mins till mix is dry and cooked. Leave aside to cool.

2. Divide both doughs into 2 (equal sizes).
With a rolling pin, roll dough A into a flat round shape (thicker in the middle).
Take dough B and put in the middle of dough A. Wrap up the sides and close up dough B completely. With the rolling pin, roll the dough into a rectangular shape. From the top, roll the dough into a swiss-like roll. This is to make swirls on the skin of the curry puffs.

3. With a bread knife, cut up the dough into 10 - 15 pcs. Roll out each piece and fill the middle with chicken curry filling. Fold into two and pleat the joint edges.

4. Repeat the same process for the second dough.
