patisserie local


Karipap is what we call this half-moon shaped delicacies. You can't leave until you've tried one of these. Puff pastries filled with curried potatoes and chicken bits. This old man was very kind. He gave me an extra karipap because I took his picture. Trying to set himself apart from the other karipap sellers, he also stuffs his with mutton. Yummy!

Karipap is the Malaysian mutation of the word "curry puff" - essentially a flaky pastry filled with curried whatever (usually chicken and potatoes) and deep fried till crisp. You can also get them in smaller sizes and filled with peanuts and sugar as a sweet alternative. They are the perfect snack for tea/brunch/whatever and can be found sold by several street hawkers that are bountiful in Malaysia, whether in the heart of the city or out in the villages.

Every so often we pick up curry puffs and Portugese egg tarts from a store just like this. I may take a photo!
