If you are from around here, you probably had seen or bought the curry puffs sold by this old man who used to ply public events and festivals selling his curry puffs. His voice is very loud and he would shout, “Pap panas-panas” and honking a bicycle horn. The statidium was his regular haunt.
I think the old man has passed on or too old to sell anymore. Now, this woman and another man are selling the curry puffs in the same way. Except that she rides a bike and don’t shout the same way like the old man. I asked her if she is related to the old man but apparently not.
The curry puff has more skin than fillings. After all, they used to sell to students so it has to be economical. Usually, the curry puffs are hot. I had bought them a few times and though, they don’t taste that great, hot curry puff is always nice.
The special feature of this curry puff is the pickled onions and chillies that they pile on the curry puffs. If you don’t mind some stinky breaths after eating, the crunch of the onions, spiciness of the chillies and sourish taste is really something you should try, at least once.
I bought this curry puff just for the blog. So, I hope you have had enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed stuffing myself with the huge karipap panas-panas.
The lady vendor is usually found at the Race Course, just before horse racing. I bumped into her at the International Floral Fest. Very friendly and sweet lady and was flattered that I took her photo. RM 1 per piece.
