Ingredients

Pastry

  • cups ( 210 g ) all purpose or cake flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup ( 80 ml ) melted margarine or butter
  • ½ cup ( 125 ml ) of warm water

Sweetcorn and red bell pepper filling

  • 2 cups ( 350 g ) frozen sweetcorn
  • 1 small red bell pepper diced
  • 1 small onion finely diced
  • 1 Tablespoon ( 15 ml ) canola or sunflower oil
  • ½ teaspoon chilli powder or cayenne pepper optional
  • ¼ cup ( 50 g ) feta roughly crumbled
  • chives or fresh coriander
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • oil for deep frying pastries

Instructions

TO MAKE THE PASTRY

  • Combine flour and salt in a bowl.
  • Add the melted butter or margarine, and rub it between your fingertips until it resembles fine breadcrumbs.
  • Add the warm water and mix it together to form a soft dough. Knead until the dough is smooth and elastic... for about 3-4 minutes.
  • Cover with a clean cloth and leave aside while you prepare the filling.

TO MAKE THE FILLING

  • Heat oil in a pan on medium heat. Add onion and cook until soft. Once the onion is soft , add the diced bell peppers and cook for 5 minutes. Put in the chilli powder or cayenne pepper if using.
  • Add the sweetcorn and cook for about 5 to 10 minutes. Season to taste
  • Remove from the heat and crumble the feta over the cooked sweetcorn and pepper mix.

ASSEMBLING THE PASTRY

  • Break off 10 equal sized pieces from the dough. Using a rolling pin, roll out each piece into a six inch disk. Cut the disk in half. Place a teaspoon of the cooked filling onto the pastry on one half and fold over to form a triangle and to cover. Seal by making a small fold on the edges. Do the same for the rest of the pastry.
  • Heat enough oil on medium to deep fry the filled pastries. Fry for about 4 to 5 minutes on each side, until golden brown.
  • Remove from oil and drain the pastries on paper towel and serve warm
