Mother Nature has been super hormonal lately. Super-hot one minute and freezing cold the next. It is days like this that we need to be extra good to ourselves and eat nourishing comfort food. Who craves curry when they are cold?

Do you remember a few weeks ago on our Super Easy Crab Salad post we talked about all the unique and fun ways to use curry powder. Well now you can add one more to your list and that is our super simple Turkey Curry Puff Recipe.

We had ground turkey in the refrigerator but really you could use ground beef, ground lamb, ground pork or even a mushroom medley if you want a vegetarian version. We found that ground turkey is tender and delicious and makes a great filling for the turkey curry puffs.

Puff Pastry that is frozen is always a great thing to have on hand as you can make so many delicious dishes in a flash. Have you tried our Blueberry Buckle Almond Tart?  or our Berry and Peach Pudding Tart?

A couple of hints when working with frozen puff pastry…to make Turkey curry Puffs or any recipe

  • Thaw puff pastry for about 4 hours in refrigerator or about 30 minutes at room temperature.
  • Do not try to manipulate the puff pastry whilst it is still frozen or it will crack.
  • Puff pastry works better cold but not frozen. If your puff pastry was on the counter and is now room temperature, pop in the refrigerator for a few minutes to chill.
  • Egg wash gives your puff pastry a beautiful bronze tan.
  • Do not be poking holes in your puff pastry or we will have to call it flat pastry instead.
  • You can use puff pastry to make breakfast, lunches, dinners, desserts, snacks and everything else in between.
  • It is best when baked seem side down but as you can see here also A-Okay if no time to flip over.

  • These Turkey curry puffs look so exotic, Bobbi. I guess Mother’s nature wants to play with us. 😉 I certainly crave curry when it is cold. And love the fact these are so to make. Perfect.

    • Mother Nature has sure been odd lately… I could not agree more that curry is just the ticket to warm you up when you are cold. Wishing you a super weekend!

  • I love these curry meat pies in puff dough…I have never used turkey meat…and I am loving it…much healthier than using meat…thanks for the recipe Bobbi!
    Have a wonderful weekend 🙂

    • Wishing you a wonderful weekend too Juliana! turkey is healthier and also we find it a bit more tender than beef, but you can use whatever your little heart desires. Take Care

  • These look so delicious. I remember getting curry puffs at the Asian bakery but haven’t had one in so long. Thanks for the reminder. Love a good handheld meat pie and curry flavor always hits the spot.

    • Yes Monica…right next to the coconut buns and just above the egg tarts… at the bakeries in Hong Kong. Just biting into this little Turkey Curry Puff will bring back some memories for you and the good news is don’t have to wait in a long que…Take Care
