Discussion in 'Lifestyle & Healthy Living' started by Jeanh, Sep 23, 2015.


  1. INGREDIENTS:

    Filling:
    1/2 kl chicken *phcorner* or thigh, cubed
    1 medium sized onion, minced
    4 cloves garlic, minced
    1 medium potato, diced
    1 small carrot, diced
    1 cup water or chicken broth
    1 cup green peas
    1/4 cup raisins
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp pepper
    cooking oil

    Dough:
    3 cups flour
    1/4 cup sugar
    1/2 tsp baking powder
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 cup butter
    1/3 cup cold water
    1 egg (for egg wash)

    PROCEDURE:
    For the dough:
    Combine all the dry ingredients in a bowl.

    Add the cold butter cubes in the mixture by rubbing it until it looks like coarse bread crumbs.

    Gradually add the cold water, and knead until you form a soft and smooth dough ball.

    Chill in the refrigerator for half an hour.

    Filling:
    Heat the oil

    Sauté the garlic and onion.

    Add the cubed chicken and cook until it turns brown.

    Add the carrots and potatoes and cook for about 3 minutes.

    Pour in the water or chicken broth and let it simmer until the carrots and potatoes are tender.

    Add the raisins and green peas and simmer for another 5 minutes.

    Season with salt and pepper.

    Transfer to a bowl and make sure that it is drained of any liquid.

    Allow to cool for about half an hour.

    With floured hands, press the dough on a floured surface.
    Use a rolling pin to flatten to about 1/8” thick, and cut it into 4” circles with a bowl and cookie cutter.

    Put about 1-2 teaspoons of the filling in the middle of the dough.

    Fold the dough to make the edges meet and form a half circle.

    Seal by pressing the edges with a fork.

    Make the egg wash by mixing the beaten egg white and a little water.

    Brush the crust with the egg wash.

    Fry them, three at a time, in a saucepan at medium high.
    Constantly flip them to avoid burning.

    Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel to drain excess oil.

    You can also bake them at 200° C (400° F) for about 20 to 25 minutes or until they turn light brown.

    Allow to cool off before serving.
