It seems that every culture has some version of a beef and potato wrapped in pastry food item. Australians have a steak and potato pie, Russians do it in a piroshki, Indians with samosas and Latin Americans have empanadas. Over the weekend, I made the Malaysian version for friends: curried beef and potato wrapped in puff pastry. I used a mild curry powder and the kids loved it. It's always rewarding to see your own kids appreciate your food but a little extra special when other people's children enjoy it so much, they ask to eat the last one. This is an easy recipe and I cheat a little by using puff pastry instead of making my own.
