curry puff

in my current, i am in no special condition...just in an unspecified uncertain condition of uncategorised nature, i totally do not know what i want. one minute i want to eat this, then the next, i'll change my mind. then i'll go back to the first choice, only to change it at the very last minute...senang cakap, i'm being a typical fickle minded woman on crack. hahahaha!! okay, strike the crack bit...maybe i'm just high on something else. truth be said, my taste buds have not been the same ever since this whole house was struck with the mystery of the non-appearing fever virus...*i think one of the symptoms must be constant ramblings that has no sense at all, like now*

so, today, i woke up feeling a tad better. went for my run, as usual, and immediately after that felt the body aches again. and what does one do when one feels as if one is about to be down with fever? one makes pastries! yes! brilliant idea! i am such a wonder genius at times, yes?

genius that i am, i didn't go the make-your-own-puff-pastry way. *i no i.d.i.o.t.lah* i decided to use the instant store bought pastry, went to one of my favorite blogs and see what i can find and...ta-raaaaaaaaa!!!

the recipe is simple enough. i had everything in the kitchen/fridge/pantry. so in a matter of minutes, the filling was ready and all i needed to do was to wait forever  for the puff pastry to thaw.

all in all, i like the filling. and it's exactly like sardine puff only with tuna in it. CMG, thank you once again for a wonderful and yet easy to follow recipe.

you guys ready?

you will need:
1 pack of instant puff pastry Kawan brand
1 egg, for the eggwash
some freshly ground black pepper, i omitted this

for the filling:
2 potatoes, peeled, cubed and soaked in water
1 big onion, cubed
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 tbsps fish curry powder
¾ tsp ground black pepper
1 can tuna, drained
1 tbs oyster sauce
2 tbs light soy sauce
1 cup water
some curry leaves

the how to:
for the filling:
1)  heat oil and saute the big onion and curry leaves till fragrant, add in garlic and oyster sauce, stir and put a little bit of water.

2)  in goes the curry powder, once the mixture is 'cooked', add in the tuna, ground black pepper, potatoes and water. you can then add in the light soy sauce. reduce heat and let it simmer till the potatoes are cooked.

3)  lastly, add in a little bit of sugar. if everything is balanced, take the filling off the heat and let it cool.

baking instructions:
oven will be at 200°C for 15-20 minutes. you can cut and shape the puff pastry any way you want. have fun while you're at it! :-)
