Alternate pork curry puff recipe:

Use 1/4 cube pork stock instead of chicken stock

Leave out the coconut powder and water

Use 200g Pork meat chopped into small cubes instead of lamb.

Use 1/2 tsp less Curry powder


Cut the curry puff rounds, flour lightly and set aside until needed (Roll out excess pastry to make more puffs)



Microware the potato for about 3-4 minutes to get it partially cooked then set it aside



Cut the meat into small cubes



Put the onion, cashew nuts and garlic into a food processor and process until it becomes a paste. Set aside until needed



Heat oil in a fry pan on medium high



Add the curry leaves



Add the garlic and fry until fragrant



Add the chicken stock (or pork stock cube if you are cooking pork curry puffs)



Add the chilli powder, cardamom powder, fenugreek powder, nutmeg and fennel



Add the curry powder and stir briefly



Add the meat



Add salt



Add sugar



Add the partly cooked potato



If you are cooking the lamb version then add the coconut powder mixed with water


Once the meat if cooked turn off the heat and place in a bowl to cool. Once it is cool use the curry puff maker to make the puffs. Place a party round on top of the puff maker, brush the edge with beaten egg, add 1/3 cup of cooled mixture and fold the curry puff to seal in the ingredients



Bake in a moderate oven for about 30 minutes or until the party is a nice golden brown.
