The best time to eat a curry puff is when it is freshly-made, which is exactly what Katong Chicken Curry Puff does! Their hot hot curry poks are made in small batches so that each curry puff is always fresh and hot to retain its quality. Filled with curried potatoes and chicken bits, this curry puff is set to leave a lingering spiciness on your taste buds.

Apart from curry puffs, the stall also sells their main ingredient – curry powder. Which means, literally anyone can try to re-create the same curry puff at home! Though we are pretty certain the original will always taste the best.

Using his grandfather’s original recipe, the result is a delicately handmade curry puff with perfectly folded and crispy ribbons. With a savoury filling of chicken pieces and hard-boiled egg, this is undeniably a puff-full of goodness!
