Beef Curry Puffs

Beef Curry Puffs





500g premium beef mince

  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 Tbsp curry paste
  • 2 tsp fresh ginger, grated
  • 1½ cups beef stock
  • 400ml coconut milk
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1kg / 6 sheets puff pastry




To serve

  • 2 Tbsp yoghurt
  • ½ cucumber, diced



Place beef mince in a bowl and mix in a little oil.

Heat a large frypan, ensure it is hot. Crumble in half of the mince and brown, breaking up any lumps with a fork.

Remove first batch, reheat pan and cook remaining mince.

Return first batch of mince to the frying pan. 

Add the onion, garlic, curry paste and ginger, cook stirring for 1 minute.

Add stock and coconut milk. Bring to the boil, reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes.

The mince mixture should be fairly thick. Remove from heat and cool.

Preheat oven to 200 °C.

To assemble, work with one pastry sheet at a time. Cut each pastry sheet in half vertically, three times, to give four equal strips.

Place a tablespoon of cooled beef mince mixture on the bottom right-hand corner of each strip.

Fold the corner over to form a triangle. Keep folding, retaining the triangular shape with each fold, until you reach the top of the strip.

Place the triangles on a baking tray lined with baking paper.

Bake for 10 minutes or until curry puffs are puffed and golden.

Serve with plain yoghurt and chopped cucumber.
