  • 500g Quality Mark beef mince
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 tablespoons mild curry paste
  • 2 teaspoons grated ginger
  • 1½ cups beef stock
  • 400 ml can coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1kg pkt ready-rolled puff pastry sheets (6 sheets), thawed
  • Plain thick yoghurt and cucumber to serve


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. Brown the mince, 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. 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. Then 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.

Very tasty. I used ¾ can of coconut milk and did not add the sugar. It had a lot of sauce so I served it with rice and steamed beans. I imagine it would make lovely empanadas but would advise starting with ½ can coconut milk and adding more as required. Will definitely make again.
