Curry puffs with avocado

I love savoury snacks, and the curry puff is my go-to that I always have whenever I visit Singapore. The avocado will give you a creaminess to go with the dry filling and creates a great harmony in your mouth! You can have it as it is, or dip the puff into sweet chilli sauce.
