Homemade Curry Puffs And Siew Pau

Homemade curry puffs and siew pau are the delights of the day. This afternoon, Yian put her hands to come out with these locally renowned pastries.

Curry puff is an authentic Malay pastry. It is simply a paste of flour, fat, etc baked in oven. Commonly stuffed with beef curry or potatoe cubes, it is now popular among all races in Malaysia.

In star-rated hotels, curry puffs are commonly served as a tea break item. Even foreigners have grown to like it after savouring.

Yian also baked some siew pau for us to sample using shredded pork as stuffing. This is a non-Malay pastry, popular among Chinese only.

Homemade curry puffs and siew pau - they are yummy!
