TRADITIONAL KINGSTON DISH: PATI
Jamaican gastronomy is a set of culinary techniques, flavors, and spices of the indigenous people of the island of Jamaica and the influences of Spanish, Irish, British, African, Indian, and Chinese who have inhabited the island. It is also influenced by the crops introduced to the island from tropical Southeast Asia. Pati or patí is a breaded or baked patty, stuffed with meat, potatoes, and other ingredients, usually spicy. They are widely consumed in Jamaica, where they originate from, and from there it has spread to other areas of the Caribbean and these are the Ingredients:
500 g. Of flour
1 teaspoon of turmeric
1 teaspoon of salt
150 g. from butter to cubes
Cold water (approximately 150 ml.)
1 beaten yolk
500 g. minced beef
2 tablespoons of virgin olive oil
2 medium chopped onions
2 minced garlic cloves
1 teaspoon ginger tea
1 teaspoon of black pepper
2 teaspoons of curry
1 teaspoon paprika
2 very small chopped tomatoes
Put the sifted flour in a bowl, add the salt and turmeric and stir. Add the butter and with the help of your fingers form a sandy mixture. We are adding tablespoons of cold water, and knead until the dough is bound and has a firm consistency. We make a ball with it and wrap it in plastic film, we let it rest for an hour in the fridge.
Meanwhile, we prepare the filling.
In a wide frying pan, heat the olive oil and fry the meat. Add the chopped onions and garlic, and let it brown. Add all the spices and stir to integrate well. Finally, add the tomatoes and let cook for a few minutes and reserve.
Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface and cut circles (we can use a plate of approximately 10 cm.), which we will place on top of a tray covered with baking paper. In the center of each circle, we place a couple of tablespoons of stuffing and fold in half. We will press the edges well with a fork and we will prick the surface with the same fork to avoid air being trapped. Paint with the beaten yolk and bake for approximately 30-35 minutes at 200ºC, until they are golden brown.
