Karipap Daging | Beef Curry Puff

June 27, 2015

beef curry puff recipe

It was the third day of Ramadan (last Saturday), and I had major craving for beef curry puff and everything fried... which is not the usual anymore since I pledged to eat healthily 10 years ago.

... no excuses this time... I had to have SOME fried food and  Beef Curry Puff/ Karipap Daging is on the menu.

No worries... I am not about to turn into a ’She Hulk’ or that McNugget Lady in the video that was making round on the internet, if I don’t get my fried food.

The two Tweenies (none other my 20 yr old and 18 yr old ... I shall call them that now) were happy...
Yay!!! mom is making something FRIED!!!
and MOM is making CURRY PUFF.... one of those kuih (finger food) that they miss eating....

The word ‘puff’ is misleading... these little bites doesn’t puff, as you would expect a puff pastry to puff up when it is bake.

Notice the new feature below .... a video on ‘How to...’

I confess...sometimes (not all the time), I have difficulties in explaining lengthy laborious process... my words may sounded ‘Alien’ to you especially when you are not familiar with the food/ dish that I am blogging about.

Hence to overcome my shortfall... and making it easier for my kids and my readers ... I’ll be putting up videos on YouTube for future references.

I plan to put up more ‘How to..’  videos on re-visited recipes as well some new ones.

Making videos is the brainchild of the young lady in the photo below.... who is my no 1 subscriber ...yay
She has been putting forward the idea of video-makings but I was the one who hesitated...
Thinking about the amount of work and time involved and not knowing whether my camera is equipped for video shooting.
When it comes to technology and what’s trending...
MOM is always wrong
so here... it is...

Looking forward to your support in subscribing to my Youtube CHANNEL
