Curry puffs or as we call it, Karipap is a comfort food for Malaysians. Well, any Malaysian food is comfort food to us. 🙂 Karipap is also known as epok-epok and is quite similar to Empanadas. Karipap is a dough stuffed with dry curried minced meat or sardines and then fried. Some add a quarter of a hard boiled egg in it. On a regular day, I would make Karipap using ready made puff pastry as I don’t have a good hand with dough ( I always over handle it). My Easy Sardine Curry Puffs recipe using puff pastry.

4.) Fill the dough into a loaf tin lined with baking paper. If you don’t use a silicone loaf pan line ALL SIDES with parchment paper so the bread will release easily. Smooth the top, but don’t press down too much – keep as much air in the dough as possible. Bake at 180 Celsius / 350 Fahrenheit for about 45 minutes or until a knife inserted comes out clean!


But since I’m on a Keto way of eating, I had to find an alternative. The filling is perfectly fine and I did not have to use any substitutes. The dough however, was my problem. Few days ago, I found a Keto empanada recipe and it took me back to my trip to Spain last summer and I had 2 empanadas and that reminded me of karipap. So after some research, I decided to use a Keto empanada dough recipe but fill it with dry mince meat curry to make Malaysian karipap. I was a little hesitant because using a cheese dough recipe for karipap as it seemed like an abomination to karipap, but after I had my first bite I can safely say, IT’S DAMN DELICIOUS! You can’t even tell that it was made from cheese!

Chicken egg roll ala Hokben ini saya buat untuk anak-anak dan mereka suka. Ternyata memasaknya tidak sesulit yang dibayangkan. Cukup dengan menggulung daging ayam giling yang sudah dibumbui dengan telur dadar dan dikukus sampai matang kemudian dipotong-potong dan digoreng kering. Siapkan plastik tahan panas atau aluminium foil untuk menggulung. Disini saya share resep chicken egg …

Is Bourbon a keto


Place the macadamia nuts into a food processor fitted with an S knife blade. Pulse just until the nuts reach a fine crumbly consistency, without large pieces. Make sure to pulse, don't leave the food processor running, to try to make flour and not nut butter. Scrape the sides as needed. The nuts may still begin to form nut butter a little, but try to avoid as much as possible.
I just started the keto diet and being Malaysian like you its so hard to give up the good ol Malaysian carb laden food like the karipap(which is my fav). So stumbling on to your blog is heaven sent.
