Hainanese Baked Curry Puff

Yesterday was Malaysia Day and some of my friends came and visited me and asked me to make some curry puff for them just like the ones in Miri. This was one of my favorites recipe and I had make it umpteen times. This time round, I made both with curry filling and custard.

For water dough:
400g plain flour
225ml water mix with 1/4 tsp salt
2 tbsp shortening or margarine

For oil dough:
200g plain flour
150g margarine or shortening

For filling:
400g potatoes, cubed and cooked till soft
200g big onions, cubed
3 tbsp curry powder
1 tbsp chilli powder
2 sprigs curry leaves
1 tbsp vegetarian oyster sauce
Salt and sugar to taste
A dash of pepper
To make water dough: Place flour in a mixing bowl. Rub in shortening and add in the water. Knead into a smooth dough.leave aside to rest for 10 minutes. Divide into 24 equal portions.

To make oil dough: Rub shortening or margarine into the flour to form an oily dough. Divide into 24 equal portions.

To combine into pastry: Wrap oil dough inside water dough. Flatten the dough and roll up. Repeat the process. Cut the rolled-up dough into two. Use a rolling pin to press it flat. Shape into a circle. Add filling and seal the sides. Pinch the edges to form a scallop design.
