FRIED MEAT PIE RECIPE

NIGERIAN FRIED MEAT PIE
Nigerian meat pie can be yummly fried. The reason I won't say bye bye to baked meat pie is because I already explained to my girls that even though fried foods most times taste better, that baking is a healthier option. 4 cups of flour produced these 16 meat pies that when I started they asked why I put a pot of oil on the fire and I kindly explained that after my meat pie recipe got posted, some good people sent DMs asking if Nigerian meat pie can be fried and
I said yes but that if not properly done, the filling too can get fried along and then it's like you eating just chaff. I thought about using my Egg roll Recipe for the dough but changed my mind because it won't give that little crunch I want. 

This evening we remembered the curry cabbage rolls I onced fried that got great reviews and I just told myself that the recipe would be great for fried meat pies, so, here it is! Delicious, delicious and delicious!

INGREDIENTS FOR THE DOUGH.

4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon softened butter (Naija baking margarine)
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoons powdered milk
400mls water
2 egg whites for sealing

THE MEAT PIE FILLING is our normal Naija filling, no stress. 
There's a picture below for every step...
4 medium sized irish potatoes
1 medium sized carrot
1/2 kg minced meat
1 tablespoon dried thyme leaves
1 medium sized red onion
Seasoning cubes to taste
Salt to taste
Pepper (Optional)
1 cup water
1 tablespoon flour

DIRECTION:
1. Add all dry ingredients to a bowl, mix well
2. Dilute the milk in the water and add
3. Mix well into a dough and set aside.

* Then,Cook the meat with seasoning, half the diced onion and thyme till meat turns brown.
* Add the diced potatoes, carrots and onion as shown in the pictures.
* Stir, check for taste, add salt if needed, cover and leave to cook while you check from time to time and if pot begins to dry up before vegetables soften, you can add the water and continue to cook.
* When they are beginning to get soft, add the flour to thicken and leave to simmer for about 3 minutes before you turn off the heat.

NOW, BACK TO THE DOUGH.
1. Divide into smaller sizes as shown in the pics below.
2. Roll briefly to flatten.
3. Cut with your meat pie cutter or a cup like me.
Repeat until you have stacked all the cut circles.
4. Brush egg white as shown in the pictures below
5. Scoop the cooked filling with a tablespoon and place in the middle. Fold, press as shown.
6. Heat oil in a pot or deep fryer
7. Fry in batches till brown to your taste.
8. Let the kids enjoy with a chill drink, it's holiday na.
