Fried Curry Stuffed Buns

Hey Everyone! Often I make a simple Japanese curry using my favorite Japanese curry paste, but I usually make it over rise or sometimes even pasta. However, today I felt like making Fried Curry Stuffed Buns. They’re pretty popular in Japan. This recipe uses a few basic ingredients. You can fill your curry buns with anything you’d like. I used minced beef, onion and corn in mine because that is what I had in my fridge. I usually make my curry vegetarian, but this was great too!

Saucy curry filling isn’t good for this recipe, so tighten it up with a couple of table spoons of flour. Let your filling cool down prior to filling your buns. Fried curry stuffed buns is a little time consuming, but pretty approachable and worth the effort! We aren’t going to elaborate on fillings today, but will focus on the dough, and frying it properly!

  7. Once dough is doubled, portion into 16 balls.
  8. Flatten one at a time, fill with a TBSP of curry and pinch at the ends, then gently roll.
  9. Using your finger tips, dampen stuffed ball with water and gently roll in panko.
  10. Fry each ball for about 2-3 minutes per side in a safe frying vessel, at 375F.
  11. Drain and let rest on a paper towel lined sheet tray.
