Chicken Pinch Pies

Thanks FV for the yummy recipe and the pictures!! You are awesome!!

1 cup chicken minced
1 cup grated cheese
1 cup firm mashed potato
1 tablespoon freshly chopped cilantro
1 tablespoon crushed garlic
1 teaspoon pounded green chilies
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon fine black pepper

2 cups All purpose flour 
 ½ teaspoon salt
1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
125 g butter, grated
Iced water

Beaten Egg

1.       Combine all the ingredients for the filling together in a dish.

1.       Form into small balls with oiled hands and place onto a greased tray. Freeze for 10 minutes or until firm.

2.       Rub the butter into the dry ingredients to resemble crumbs. Add just enough iced water to form a soft but manageable dough.

3.       Roll the dough out thinly on a floured surface and cut into 7 cm rounds. Place the rounds on to a plastic covered tray and freeze for 10 minutes or until firm enough to handle.

4.       Place a small mince ball in the center of each round disc and pinch the dough  on the four sides or all around the all, allowing only the top to be visible. [ Suitable to freeze at this point]


5.       Dip in beaten egg and drop the pies top sides facing downwards in hot oil. Deep fry until golden brown.

       Drain in absorbent paper and serve. [ Makes about 5 dozen]
