|Indian Style Empanadas|
I adapted the empanadas dough recipe from here laylita.com since dough making details are already given in the link I just go ahead with potato stuffing.
Potato and pea stuffing ingredients
Potato ( boiled, peeled and diced into cubes) – 2 nos
Dried green peas ( soaked overnight and cooked) – 1 cup
Red chilli powder – 1 and ¼ tsp
Garam masala powder – 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Cumin seeds – 1 tsp
Curry leaves ( chopped) – few
Oil – 1 tsp
1. Prepare the empanadas dough and set aside.
2. To make filling. Heat oil in a pan, add cumin seeds, curry leaves and when they crackle add boiled potatoes, peas, red chilli powder, garam masala powder and salt. Stir well until everything is mixed well and potatoes are slightly mashed. Remove from heat and set aside.
3. Roll out empanadas dough into small discs like making puris, spoon pea and potato filling onto each disc and seal the edges. Bake in pre-heated 200c oven for about 15 to 20 mins depending on your oven settings.
4. Serve hot.
