Curry Puffs from leftover chicken curry

What do you do with your leftover chicken curry? I make curry puffs with frozen roti paratha (roti canai). Your curry won’t go to waste but becomes a delicious snack. This is not your usual recipe as there are no exact measurements for the ingredients. It all depends on how much leftover curry you have. This video tutorial is simply to show you how I made use of my leftover curry to make curry puffs.

Surprisingly, the frozen roti paratha (roti canai) turned out even better than puff pastry. It was fluffy and less oily and stayed fluffy for a number of days. Keep in fridge and warmed up before eating.

  4. Seal the edges with a fork by pressing them together.
