Curry Puff

I've been wanting to try this for a very long time. Finally made these for tea today! Yummy..

All purpose flour - 300g
Margarine - 70g
Water - 150 ml
Salt - 1/4 tsp

Onion - 1/2 cubed
Potatoes - 2 cubed
Chicken breast - 1 cubed
Chili powder - 1 1/2 tsp
Meat curry powder - 1/ tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Water - 100 ml
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste

Prepare the filling first by sautéing onions in a little oil. 
Add chili powder, meat curry powder, turmeric powder and continue to stir. 
Add chicken pieces and potatoes. Add water and bring to boil. Season with salt and pepper.
Once the potatoes are cooked and the liquid is reduced, remove from heat and let it cool.

To make pastry, mix flour, margarine, salt, water and knead well until it forms a dough.
Let it rest for 30 minutes.
Cut the dough into circles about 2mm in diameter. Fold the filling in and seal the edges.
Deep fry in hot oil until golden brown.
