Vegan Curry Puffs


Ingredients & Cooking Directions for Vegan Curry Puffs

Estimated Servings: 6-8 puffs

Step 1: Prepare the sauce

2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon lime juice
½ teaspoon curry powder
2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Add all of the ingredients in this step in a bowl, mix it up, and set it aside.

Step 2: Make the filling

1 peeled and cubed Yukon Gold potato
½ cup chopped yellow onion
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
½ cup chopped carrots
½ cup peas
5 cups water

Add water, potatoes, and carrots to a small pot and turn your stove on medium high. Boil the potato and carrots for 10 minutes and then turn off the heat and soak them in the hot water for another 15 minutes or until they soften.  Next drain the potato and carrots. Then use a fork to mash them. Next turn your stove on medium heat and pour oil to a large pan. Now add the onions and garlic to the pan sautéing them until fragrant. Then add the mashed carrots and potatoes along with some peas cooking them for about one minute. Next pour in the sauce that was made earlier and mix it up with all of the vegetables. Cook the filling with the sauce for about 2 minutes or until the filling dries up. Finally allow the filling to cool completely.

Step 3: Stuff the puffs

1 package vegan pastry puff dough
¼ cup all-purpose flour

Flour your kitchen surface, place the dough on top, and cut the dough into even sized squares (3 in X 3 in). Place one tablespoon of the filling in the center of the dough piece and fold it over pinching the edges. Then seal the edges with a fork. Place the pastry on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and repeat this process with all of the other square pieces.

Step 4: Bake the puffs

1/3 cup vegetable oil

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Then poke a hole in the center of the pastry and brush oil on the surface of all them. Bake the puffs for about 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Allow them to cool for about 2-3 minutes before serving.
