  • Portion size 24 servings


Curried Beef Filling:
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 onions finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 lbs ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup fresh bread crumbs
  • 4 cups flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 1/3 cup shortening
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup cold water


Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C)

In large bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, curry powder, salt and turmeric. Cut in shortening and butter until mixture resembles fine crumbs with a few large pieces. Stirring with fork, pour in water; stir to make soft dough. Gather into ball; wrap and chill for 1 hour.

Curried Beef Filling:
In large skillet, heat oil over medium heat; cook onions and garlic until softened, about 5 minutes. Remove onion mixture; set aside.

Increase heat to high. Cook beef, stirring to break up pieces, until no longer pink about 5 minutes. Drain off fat. Stir in onion mixture, curry powder, salt, thyme and black and cayenne peppers; cook over medium heat for 3 minutes. Pour in water and bring to boil; reduce heat to simmer and cook for 5 to 10 minutes or until most of the water is absorbed. Stir in bread crumbs to make moist but not runny mixture. Taste and adjust seasoning. Let cool.

Divide pastry in half and roll into 2 long sausage shapes. Slice each roll crosswise into 12 equal pieces.

Separate filling into 24 equal mounds; roll out each piece pastry into 6-inch (15 cm) circle. Spoon each mound into centre of pastry round. Wet edges with water and fold in half, making edges meet. Using fork, press edges together; prick twice. Trim into neat half-moon shape. Place patties on ungreased baking sheets; bake in oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until crisp and lightly browned.
