Spicy Chicken Turnovers

Spicy Chicken Turnovers
For the past few months my hubby is really working like nuts during his production schedules and hardly see him around like before. He's at work by the time I wake up in the morning and come back very late. Always on the computer typing or on call most of the time.So I thought of treating him with his hot favorite snack as a sweet surprise for him one evening with a steaming hot Masala Tea.

By the way what does Turnover actually means?
A turnover is a kind of pastry made by placing a filling on a piece of dough, folding the dough over, and sealing it. Turnovers can be sweet or savory and are often made as a sort of portable meal or dessert, similar to a sandwich.It is common for sweet turnovers to have a fruit filling and be made with a short (pie crust-like) or puff pastry dough; savory turnovers generally contain meat and/or vegetables and can be made with any sort of dough, though a kneaded yeast dough seems to be the most common in Western cuisines. They are usually baked, but may be fried.

Serving Size: 6

1 cup of cooked and minced chicken breast
1/2 cup mashed potatoes
1 small onion finely chopped
1tsp ginger garlic paste

Hi Sis

I am a singaporean-indian too. Living in LA with my husband and a 3 year old son.

We are really missing singapore food. At times we manage with local chinese and korean restaurants.

Really nice to see your blog and I often cook Bee hoon goreng, nasi lemak at home. It does'nt taste that as of in Singapore.

If you want to stay in touch, please mail me at rathi3011@yahoo.com.sg

I grew up in West Coast, married in Yishun and lived in Woodlands before I move to LA.

Cheers.. Rathi
