Char Siu Prata

Another simple breakfast I prepared during the weekend morning. Have been wanting to try this for long time but never get the chance, since I still have some left over char siu and Roti Prata in my freezer, guess it's the time to get the baby baked.

I want to have this as breakfast, so I prepared the char siu filling the night before and store in the fridge overnight. All I have to do in the morning is thaw the frozen Prata skin, add the filling to the skin and fold over to seal like making a kari puff. Brush lightly with beaten egg yolk to give it a shining look and baked in the preheated oven 395F for 15-25 minutes or until it looks puffy.

Voila... fresh from the oven Char Siu puff is ready for your family.. yum yum..

Wow cocoa, very creative! I may try to put chicken curry if I have that as well! It is my belief that all of you leaving overseas are more creative than many of us here in Asia. Accessibility makes people complacent...

Yuri, My friend use the prata skin for her chicken curry puff, instead of baking it, she deep fry it puff. It was yummy... but i think bake healthier for the family :) Hee.. yeah no choice, when living overseas and crave for local food, we just have to made it ourselves :)
