Directions for making Nigerian Meat Pie
**First step is to prepare the Meat Pie Filling
*Heat up the oil on medium heat.Then add the chopped onions and stir fry a bit; add the minced meat to the pot and stir well till the minced meat looses its pink color.
*Now, Add 1 cup of water to the pot, and then add the thyme, curry and garlic powder. Cover the pot and leave to boil.
*As the minced meat begins to boil, add salt to taste, add the diced potatoes and carrots and leave to cook until the vegetables are well cooked.
*Next, dissolve 2 tablespoonfull of the plain flour in half cup of cold water . Mix thoroughly and add the mix to the meat pie filling in the pot. This helps to bind the filling together and retain the moisture of the meat pie filling when baking.
*Now mix throughly, put off the heat and set aside to cool a bit.
The second Step is to prepare the Nigerian Meat Pie dough
**Break an egg, beat it and set aside for later use
**Grease the oven tray that you would be using; Do this by rubbing margarine inside the tray and set aside.This helps to prevent burning.You can also make use of baking sheets.Set aside for later use.
*Put the 500g of flour into a big bowl; add 1 teaspoon of baking powder and a pinch of salt. Mix well.
*Add the margarine (you can melt the margarine, to make mixing easier) and mix thoroughly until the mixture looks more like bread crumbs or sieved garri.
*Now, add just a little cold water,add this bit by bit, and while you do that, keep on mixing until you get a stiff dough.
*Next, Knead the dough well and leave to rest for 5 minutes, then place on a lightly floored table.
*Now, Preheat the oven at 335°F or 170°C and continue with the meat pies.
*Next, roll the dough on the table, it shouldn't be too flat or too thick.
*Using a circular shaped cutter, cut out some circles; You can make use of any clean object you have to get your desired size.(I made use of a bowl *wink* ).
*Remove the excess dough, and then using tablespoon, scoop some of the meat pie filling and place in the center of the circular cut dough. Don't add a lot of filling, so that you meat pie would look bumpy at the top.
*Now rub the whisked egg, on the edges of the dough you are working with.In place of the egg, you can make use of the flour mix, that you used as a binder for the filling.This helps to prevent the meat pie from bursting open while in the oven.
*The next step is to fold the one side of the circular dough to join the other part, to form a semicircle. Use a fork to press the edges tight.This also forms a pretty design
Now transfer unto the greased tray and repeat this process for the remaining circles.
*When all the meat pies are folded, rub the whisked egg on the surface of the meat pies.The egg helps to give the meat pie a golden shine, but this is optional.
*Place the Meat pies in the preheated oven and leave to bake for 35 minutes Or until the meat pies becomes to lighly brown. You can check it from time to time, if you are not sure of the temperature of your oven.
The Nigerian Meat pies are ready when they are lightly brown..Enjoy.
