Waffles don't always have to be sweet. Also savory varieties can be very tasty. And I also like to use an Oriental spice in it. And that's how these spicy curry mini waffles were created. They are the perfect basis for a tasty starter or appetizer.
About spicy curry mini waffles
These spicy curry wafers are not a sweet snack. But they can be perfectly integrated into a starter or an aperitif. So here we opted for a finish with cream cheese and/or sour cream and smoked salmon. And a top of fresh green dill.
Normally I use regular pastry flour for these curry wafers, not self-raising flour. But the regular flour was recently sold out in the supermarket. As an alternative I tried to use coconut flour. However, that was not a 100% success. Because the coconut flour needs a lot more liquid, and the wafers were more crumbly. With some adjustments, this may be possible in the future. The coconut flavor is of course delicious and fits well with the curry spice.
The baking time and the number of waffles you can bake also depend on your waffle iron. For these wafers I used my Tefal snack collection with a wafer plate for four small wafers. With this you can bake four rectangular wafers per baking. A small disadvantage is that you have to cut off the inner edges, and you can see this a bit. But this of course does not affect the taste. And that's what it's all about in the end.
Toppings for savory curry mini waffles
As indicated earlier, curry mini waffles are not standalone wafers. These savory waffles need toppings. The simplest is a slice of smoked salmon on sour cream or a cream cheese. You can also combine them very well with some other starters:
