How to Make Non-veg Jamaican patties

  • For the non-veg filling:
  • Heat the margarine in a heavy skillet. Saute the onion and Scotch Bonnet pepper until soft.
  • Add the ground beef, salt, pepper, curry powder and thyme and mix well.
  • Brown the meat for 10 mins, stirring occasionally.
  • Now add the breadcrumbs and stock. Mix well.
  • Cover and simmer for about 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Cook till it semi -dries.
  • For the patties.
  • Pre-heat the oven to 450 degrees.
  • Knead the flour, turmeric, salt and ghee with water to form a firm dough.
  • Roll out the dough to 1/8-inch thickness and cut 6-inch round pieces.
  • For an extra flakiness in the crust, brush the rolled out dough with ghee, fold and roll again.
  • Repeat this 3 times.
  • Make the dough into circles, place 2 to 3 tbsp of the filling and spread it on half the circle.
  • Moisten the edges of the circle with water and fold over the filling.
  • Pinch the edges closed with a fork.
  • Lightly brush the patty with a mixture of the egg and water (plain milk for veg patties).
  • Bake on a lightly greased baking sheet on the top rack for 30-40 mins or till the patties are golden brown.
  • Serve hot with some hot-n-spicy scotch sauce.
