  • Add the minced Habanero pepper to give it some heat and aroma then you stir-fry for a few seconds. Then add the ground beef. Try to break the meat apart as you don’t want clumps forming in the filling.
  • Once the beef is well browned, add your spices and the diced potatoes plus enough water to cook the potatoes till it becomes tender.
  • Stir in the diced Carrot and cook again for another 5 minutes. Add the cornstarch and water mixture to slightly thicken up the filling and leave to simmer for about 2-3 minutes.
  • Take it off the heat and let it cool down while you prepare the pastry dough.

How to make the Whole wheat Meat pie pastry dough

  • In a large bowl, bring together flour, baking powder, nutmeg, salt, brown sugar, and whisk together.
  • Add the cubed butter or margarine, to the dry ingredients and work the butter/Margarine into the flour with your hands until it becomes crumbly.
  • Add the Egg and mix it into the flour until it is well incorporated, then, begin to introduce the cold water a little at a time and use your hand to toss the flour into the Water until it's fully absorbed. Once the dough is formed, cover it up with a plastic wrap and put it in the fridge for at least 20 minutes.
  • After 20 minutes, take the dough out from the fridge, and roll it out on a lightly floured work surface. Then use the medium size pie cutter to cut out your circles. If you happen to not have a pie cutter, you can use any circular object around the house to cut out your dough.
  • Place the cut-out dough on your pie cutter. Fill it with about 2 tablespoons of filling brush the circular edge of the pie with the Egg wash and close it up with the pie cutter (Seal the pie). See note
  • Remove the pie from the pie cutter and place it on a parchment lined baking sheet. Brush the surface of the pie with the Egg wash and use a fork to poke a few holes on the surface of the pie. See note
  • Place the pies in a 350°F preheated oven and bake for 25 to 30 minutes till the surface of the pie becomes golden.
  • It is best served while still hot Serve as breakfast with a Cup of Tea, for brunch or evening snack with a chilled drink.
