Hogwarts House Elves Curry Puff Recipe

Super yummy curry puff recipe great for Harry Potter parties

I grew up eating curry puffs. To me they are comfort food and party food at their best. Everyone I’ve feed them to has loved them. And any time we have  Harry Potter party they are part of the menu along with Dumbledore’s Pensieve of course.

Dumbledore's Pensieve what a fun idea and this recipe is so easy and yummy. We've made it a few times. Harry Potter lovers unite.

There isn’t anything in the books or movies called a curry puff but I’ve always assumed that Harry and his pals much on them. I think it has to do with the similarity to the English pasties and the curry that is so common in the area.Fun baby House Elves costumes. Mischief Managed Aprons

Harry Potter House Elf and Mischief Managed Aprons and Curry Puff recipe so fun

Either way they are delicious and a great treat. They can be made ahead and served room temp or hot from the oven. They are great for school lunches, after school treats or if you’re a savory breakfast girl like me a nice easy breakfast. I made a bunch of these when Teddy was a newborn since they were so easy to reheat and eat one handed.

  3. Marissa, these curry puff pastries look really good. My boys love Harry Potter and I think they would think would really think these are fun. Those house elves are super cute too:).

  4. What a great idea! And those kiddies are too cute. Thanks for sharing with the #homemattersparty. We have the most creative guests this week!

  5. I’m curious. The recipe states tablespoons but the directions say teaspoons; which one is it?

    • I like to START with a tsp because different brands and batches of curry powder and paste can vary drastically in spiciness but in my experience I almost always end up using at least 1 TBS

  6. lol, I’m pinning this just for the picture of your kids in those aprons!
