Jamaican Patties
Yield: 16 Patties

2 c all-purpose flour
1 1/2 ts baking powder
1 ts curry powder
1/2 ts turmeric

2 ts vegetable oil
1 sm onion, chopped
3 green onions
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 ts cayenne pepper
1 lb ground beef
1 tb curry powder

1/2 ts salt
2/3 c shortening
1/4 c butter or margarine
1/3 c ice water

1 ts dried thyme
1/2 ts turmeric
1/4 ts salt
1/4 ts pepper
1 c water
1/2 c fresh bread crumbs

In large bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, curry powder,
turmeric, and salt. Cut in shortening and butter until crumbly.
Drizzle in water, stirring with fork and adding up to 2 tb more
water if necessary, to make a soft dough. Form into a ball and
flatten to a disc. Wrap and chill for 1 hour.

In skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; cook onion, green
onions, garlic and cayenne pepper for 3 minutes or until softened.
Remove with slotted spoon and set aside. Over high heat, saute beef
for 5 minutes or until no longer pink; drain off fat. Return onion
mixture to pan along with curry powder, thyme, turmeric, salt and
pepper; cook for 3 minutes over medium heat. Pour in water; bring
to a boil. Add crumbs; simmer for 3 minutes or until slightly
thickened but still juicy. Let cool.

Divide dough into 16 pieces. On floured pastry cloth and using
stockinette-covered rolling pin, roll out each piece into 5-inch
circle. Brush edges of top half with water; place 2 heaping tbsp
of filling in the centre. Fold in half, pressing edges together
with fork to seal. Prick twice; place on ungreased baking sheet.
*(Patties can be covered and refrigerated for up to 1 day.)* Bake
in 375 F oven for about 20 minutes or until crisp and golden.
