Curry puff is a popular snack in Singapore and Old Chang Kee probably owe its success to their signature curry puff. Curry puff is a pastry usually wrapped with potato cubes fried in curry spices. There are also variations where you put chicken meat and eggs inside the filling. If you doesn't like potatoes, you can also try sardines or chicken mushroom like those you find at Old Chang Kee. Curry puffs are usually deep-fried in oil hence it is important that you secure the edges tightly using the pleating method.
