Nov 11 Class – Chicken Curry Puffs

CHICKEN CURRY PUFFS

(from All Recipes)

Makes about 9 servings

1 Tablespoon vegetable oil

1/2 teaspoon ground coriander

1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

2 teaspoons curry powder

1/2 cup coconut milk (or more as needed)

2 red onions, finely chopped

1 stalk lemon grass

1 red chili pepper, roughly chopped

1 large russet potato peeled and diced into bite sized pieces

3/4 pound boneless chicken breast, cut into bite sized pieces

1 teaspoon salt

a 17.25 ounce package puff pastry

Heat vegetable oil in saucepan over medium-low heat.  Stir in coriander, turmeric, cumin and curry powder. Cook a few seconds until fragrant.  Pour in coconut milk, onions, lemon grass and red chili pepper; cook until the vegetables are tender about 7 minutes.  Stir in the potato and continue cooking until tender about 10-12 minutes.  Stir in the chicken, then season with salt.  Cook and stir until chicken and potato has absorbed most of the liquid.  Spread on a plate to cool.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

Unfold puff pastry sheets and cut each sheet into nine squares.  Place a heaping teaspoon of the filling into the center of each square.  Gather all 4 corners of the pasty and pinch together at the top, forming a small pouch.  Place each bundle on the baking sheet about 1 inch apart.

Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 22-27 minutes.  Cool on a baking sheet for 5-10 minutes before removing to cool on a rack or serving plate.

Serve warm or at room temperature.

 

A savory bite to stave off hunger pains and they are great as leftovers, reheated.
