When you live far, far away from your hometown, any food craving comes with the decision of making the food yourself of to just dream of it ;-). Yesterday, I had a craving for karipap. It does not matter whether it is one that is made at the pasar malam or the ones that you can get at Eden bakery. Any karipap will suffice, however being in Salem, Oregon that means to make it or not to make it myself.
So I decided to make the karipap. Ben was taking a nap and so I took advantage of the two precious hours. I am so thankful to find excellent recipes complete with instructions on how to make the wrap as well as the filling. Go here or here if you are interested.
The recipe resulted to about 16 puffs. I had 7 in one sitting. (Yes and I am darn proud of my eating ability as well ;-).) Jim had six and Ben had 1. I was glad to introduce Ben to Malaysian cuisine. He seems to like the curry potato filling very much. All and all, I’d say it was a success. The curry puffs lasted less than two days. Yummy!
