"...nothing is too much trouble if it turns out the way it should."
~Julia Child (My Life in France)
This was my first attempt in making spiral puff or karipap pusing.. I always thought I would never make one since the step by step pictorial, in getting the spiral done, scares me. Note: I have love/hate relationship with anything related to dough. Sometimes it turns out great, sometimes not.
Anyway, this one fell into 'great' category. The dough is crunchy and very soft when you bite it. Almost similar to pau goreng dough, but crunchier. Should it tastes like that? I'm not sure how the original recipe would tastes like tho. I'd to swiped the shortening to butter since I'm out of it..
Anyway, my husband loves it. [psst.. he is a man of few words especially when it comes in complementing my foods.. when he said, "Macam kat kedai", that's means good.. If he eat more and more non-stop,- means great!..he he When he keeps silent and tak tambah2x..-probably means bad.. ;p] Adam loves it too.. he ate 2 pieces of mini karipaps..
Okay, the karipap may seem like over-fried, but trust me it's not. My photos don't give justice to these minis. Thanks to Mat Gebu for the recipe. I'll keep experimenting few other karipap pusing recipes, but for now, I'll stick with his recipe.
If you're looking for a recipe that doesn't take hours and make less mess of the kitchen, this is the one you should try. The end result is satisfying. :)
