OUR RATING: MEH!

 

Why so MEH!?

Did you know that the amount of calories in curry puff equals to a plate of wanton mee or chicken porridge? And it’s pretty bad calories because there’s almost 10g of saturated fat in it, which is almost at our daily recommend limit of 16g. That’s not all, it’s super salty too and high in fat.

Total calories in one piece: 340kcal

 

Healthier alternatives

  1. Get healthy fats from a handful of nut mixes
  2. Chicken pau
