Quite sometimes didn't make this vegetable puffs.. normally I will use the 'ghee' oil but this time I tried Raihana's recipe in making the dough..its true what she said that it stays crispy for sometimes after frying it..
As for the filling, I used my normal method like what I used for my popiah filling..except that I didn't put in the taukwa(hard bean curd)..
Ingredients For The Dough:-
350 grams plain flour (I sieved)
100 grams butter, soften
1/2 tsp salt
Place the flour in a large bowl, add in the butter and mix well until it resembles bread crumbs. Add in the egg, mix again. Then add the water, a little at a time and mix the dough till it is smooth. Put aside for few minutes. Divide into small balls, like a ping pong balls and put aside.( I weighed about 50g each..to get a bigger size epok2)
