Traditional vs mat salleh food .....

Karipap@ curry puff is my boys' and the father favorite local kuih...come to think of it the father started to be-friended the mum because of karipap. I remember once i made these things out of a kg of flour and my husband finished them un-aided when we were in the States ha ha ha....maybe he missed that thingy so much..
So this is my version of this savory kuih...all ingredients are estimated...

I used these for filling :-
5 - 6 small potatoes - cut into small cubes
2 tbspoon beef curry powder - add abt 3 tbls water to make curry paste
1 medium size big onion - chopped
2 cloves garlic - thinly sliced
2 cm ginger - julienned
1/2 cup of water
1 sprig of curry leaf
salt to taste
a bit of oil

Heat the oil and fry the onion, garlic, curry leaf and ginger for a few minutes, throw in the curry paste and simmer for awhile. Put in the water and chopped potatoes, salt to taste and let it simmer until the mixture almost dry. Cool the filling and prepare the skin.

I used abt 2 cups of flour, 3 tbls margerine, 1 tbls cooking oil, a bit of warm water mix with a little salt. I mixed the flour, margerine and the oil by using just the tips of my fingers. then i added the water a little at a time until i got an un-sticky dough. I divided the dough into small balls the size of slightly smaller than a ping pong ball, rolled it flat and filled it with about a teaspoon of the filling, closed the edges by pleating. Fry the puff in medium heat oil. My boys enjoyed the puff hot...

Whatever Jam Muffins - yummy ones which i adapted from here Jam Muffins.

Can use any jam you want, i have tried raspberry, strawberry and blueberries and all turned out very nice. I usually don't eat most thing that I bake but I eat these muffins. Very easy to bake.

You need,
140 gm butter at room temperature
120 gm castor sugar
2 eggs
Half teaspoon vanilla
8 tbls fresh milk
200 gm flour sifted with
2 tsp baking powder
Whatever jam you like to use.

1. Heat the oven at 180ÂșC.
2. Beat butter until soft then add in the sugar and beat again medium speed.
3. Add eggs one at a time, add the vanilla then the milk. Beat till well incorporated.
4. Add in the sifted flour with baking powder and beat slow.
5. Fill half of the muffins cup with the batter, put your favorite jam in about 1 tsp, and top with the batter again
6. Bake for about 25 minutes or do the skewer test.

I just love the texture and the taste of this muffins...

whenever I make karipap, alwiz fail at the pleating part! Fail big time la. At last I resorted to the clipper thing.

My hubby's fav- karipap sardin, aiyayaaaa!

Segamat, Johor circa 1979. One guy was selling freshly fried karipap along the street near the old football field in town. The karipap was quite large and of course very filling. These karipap was very popular in Segamat then and it was selling like what else if not 'goreng karipap panas'.
I hate the minuscule karipap when it takes so many to finally fill up a hungry stomach.
