How to make Caribbean Vegetable Patties Recipe (Hand Pie)
To begin making the Caribbean Vegetable Patties recipe, for the crust, sift together flour, salt, turmeric and curry powder in a large bowl. Cut butter into small pieces and mix it into flour mixture till it is crumbly.
Make a well in the centre and add water. Mix gently until a dough forms, then wrap dough in cling wrap and put in refrigerator for 1 hour.
Meanwhile, make the filling. Heat oil in a skillet. Add onion, ginger, garlic, chopped vegetables and cook till they become soft.
Add salt, all spice powder, nutmeg powder, cinnamon powder and cook for a few more minutes. Remove from heat and let cool a little.
To assemble patties, remove dough from refrigerator and divide into equal portions
Roll each piece into a 6-inch circle. Brush a little water around the edge of the circle and place about 2 to 3 tablespoons of filling in the middle.
Fold in half and crimp the edges with a fork then gently pierce the centre with the fork to allow steam to escape. Apply butter on it.
Once all patties are assembled, bake on a lightly oiled sheet pan at 215 degree for 25 minutes or until they're crisp. Serve hot.
