I used a baking pan that is 9 inches (23cm) in diameter and 1.5 inches (4 cm) deep.
For the dough
- 300g plain flour (All Purpose Flour)
- 150g margarine
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 2 pinches salt
- ¼ cup cold water
For the filling
- 1 small onion
- 1 big stock cube
- 1 teaspoon thyme
- Salt to taste
- ½ of a medium SWEET potato (150g)
- 1 small carrot (130g)
- 1 sweet apple
- 250g minced beef
Thickener for the filling
A mixture of:
- 1 tablespoon plain flour
- ¼ cup cold water
- 1 egg
The Meat Pie Filling
Wash, peel and dice all of the greens. Do the equal for the apple.
Follow the course for making Nigerian Meat Pie filling.
After step 4 from over there, upload the diced apple, add the thickener, stir and depart to simmer for about three mins.
Set aside to cool down.
The dough for this pie is blended exactly the equal manner because the dough for the classic Nigerian Meat Pie. Follow the instructions over there to mix the dough.
Roll, Fill and Close
Set your oven to a hundred and seventy°C (335°F) to preheat.
Rub margarine on the insides of the baking pan. Break the egg, beat it and set aside.
Knead the rested dough for a bit and divide it into 2 parts. One component have to be slightly bigger than the opposite.
Roll out the larger dough to a 5mm thickness ensuring that the diameter of the rolled out dough equals the diameter of your baking pan plus two times the intensity of the pan and then some extra to permit for sealing the beef pie.
Once satisfied, drape the flat dough at the pan and make it snug the internal corners of the pan.
Fill the dough-lined baking pan with the filling.
Brush a few egg on the dough overlaying the threshold of the pan.
Roll out the remaining dough to 5mm thickness and a diameter that is a bit wider than that of the baking pan.
Cover the pan with the rolled out dough and use a fork to seal the edges. Feel unfastened to close the rims any how you want.
Rub the egg on the dough. This gives the pie a golden brown look whilst finished.
Set the pan on a rack within the preheated oven and bake for 30 minutes or till the pinnacle masking is golden brown. Place the pan toward the bottom heating so that the dough at the lowest of the pan can be nicely completed by the time the pinnacle dough is accomplished.
