SWEET POTATO EMPANADA / KARIPAP KELEDEK DAN TELUR


In my earlier entry I did talked about empanada or better known in Malaysia as "Karipap". Empanada is not only famous in Malaysia, in fact empanada is a "world" well known snack especially in Latin America, South East Asia and USA, you can refer the history of empanada at : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Empanada. The shape of empanada came in almost the same every where in the world, but the fillings are different. The best that I had tasted was at IKEA,Damansara. Never miss it when ever I were there. My children had requested me to make a "copy cat" recipe of IKEA curry puff. My goodness I tried and from the scale of 1 - 10 they rated my curry puff 6. I have perfect score the fillings but not the curry puff skin. Where on earth can I get a perfect rating of IKEA curry puff unless some one leak their secret recipe. Anyway here goes my curry puff recipe.

Hari ini sarapan di luar aje, makan di Mac D aje, masih tidak berapa sihat, nampaknya MC dari dapur 2-3 juga la. Sementara itu kita layan dulu resipi karipap semalam yang tergendala.
Karipap atau empanada bukan aje terkenal di Malaysia malah diseluruh dunia. Kuih ini cukup popular di Latin Amerika, Filipina, Indonesia, Spain malah di USA. Bentuknya memang sama berbentuk bulan sabit dan diklim tepinya ataupun ditekan dengan garfu. Samada dibakar atau digoreng. So kalau berjalan-jalan di luar negara ternampak aje empanada ini jangan terkezut.....

Saya buat ini sebab anak-anak cabar saya, suruh saya buat sama macam karipap di IKEA Damansara. Dia orang memang suka karipap IKEA ini, walau pun harganya RM1 tetapi memang berbaloilah sedap berinti  keledek dan telur rebus. Saya menyahut cabaran mereka dan buatlah. Dari markah 1-10, saya cuba dapat 6 eje...itu pun markah tinggi untuk intinya. kata anak-anak, kulit karipap saya gagal menepati standard IKEA. Mak ai...mana nak dapat 100% sama melainkan kalau ada yang bocorkan resipinya. Tapi itulah dia...apa pun janji boleh makan.
