These puffs are a fabulous way to turn last night meal to an entirely new dish the next day. The best part is that food wastage is reduced which in turn saves money and time you spend in the kitchen to cook a dish from scratch.

Curry puffs – a perfect way to use up leftovers

This is not a traditional Asian curry puffs recipe in any regard, but a great substitute when you are craving for something on evenings.

This is an ideal option when you have lots of leftover curries or you don’t want to feed a day old dish to your family but want to transform it to something unusual and delicious evening snack on busy mid-week. I’ve used a day old aloo mutter (potato peas curry) for filling. You can also stuff curry puffs with any leftovers such as Jeera Aloo, Vegetable Chettinad, Paneer Jalfrezi, Chickpea Salad.  This is also a great way to entice picky kids to eat their healthy meal.

This ridiculously easy curry puffs can be adapted to suit your taste preference. Not only leftover curries, but these puffs could also be made with random veggies lying in the refrigerator or that are about to end up in the bin. You can make the stuffing with random veggies as shown in Vegetarian stuffed zucchini boats. The options for stuffings are endless, you can stuff with just anything you and your family enjoy! You can substitute pastry sheet with frozen paratha.
