Since some neighbour gave us a tin of sardine (tomato sauce) and i was wonder how to cook that sardine and then "ding" sudden pop up in my mind. Why not make Karipap? Not a normal one but the 'pusing' one. And again, search through some blogs and website to find a perfect recipe. It seems that most of the bloggers used the same recipe. I couldn't find (or i lazy to find) so i pick the most used recipe and make it. However, most of the recipes are making a larger batch, so, as my first attempt, i tried to cut half of the recipe.
A can of sardine
A few red chilli padi
Just slice the onion, then put into a pan with chili padi and stir fry until it fragrant. Then, toss in sardine (with sauce) and cook until sauce is reduced.
* If you like spicy you can even grind some chilli (dry or fresh) and stir fry along with the onion.
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tbsp corn starch
4 tbsp butter / margarine
1 cup of all-purpose flour
30ml vegetable oil
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup water (i used only 1/4cup water. It depend on the brand of flour you used. Just added little by little until it forms a dough.)
- Dough A mixes up into a dough, then divided into 4 small dough. Put into fridge to set while making dough B.
- Dough B, do it same as step 1. The most important step is added the water little by little. Then again divided into 4 small dough.
4. Fry them until golden brown.
A basic idea of how to make the "pusing" which is based on the picture i've drawn. Cross my finger and hope i will understand when the time i feel to try my second attempt. It can make about 12 medium pieces of Karipap Pusing.
In my opinion, it tasted like the oily version of puff pastry. Maybe the dough used too much of oil. That doesn't mean that it taste bad. I like it and it tasted really good. In Chinese it should be said as 酥松香脆 (flaky and crispy). It just that i felt guilty after eating this. Too much of oil and calories! In my next attempt maybe cut a little of oil? A healthy version?
