Box Patties

Box. Patties

Enjoy a big crunch!

I feel sorry that i couldn’t write for two days, messed up schedule and i thought i would be sharing a great one for this week so i tried this lovely snack, was great fun to make and absolute wonder to eat, its crispness still devouring me with every bite full of my favorite potato filling with vegetables, cheese and shredded chicken. The list can go on as much you like it but i loved making and enjoying it as this one. Check out!

 

Ingredients:

-Thin crust rolling strips 10-12 ( it will yield 5 boxes as you will using two of them)

-Potatoes boiled and mashed 2 cups

-Chicken boiled & shredded 1/2 cup

-Carrots diced 1/4 cup

-Capsicum dices 1/4 cup

-Onion diced 1/4 cup

-Cabbage 1/4 cup thinly shredded

-Mozzarella Cheese shredded 1/4 cup

-Black pepper crushed 2 tbsp

-Chicken powder 1 tsp

-Chili flakes 1 tsp (optional)

-Salt to taste

-Oil 2 tbsp

For sticking paste:

-1 tbsp of flour

-1/2 tsp of water

Method:

Mix together the flour and water to make a thick sticky paste. Adjust the consistency.

Saute vegetables for a minute or two and all ingredients together with seasoning to make a filling. Adjust according to your taste.Remove from flame and mix in cheese well together.

Place two strips together like a plus sign and put a little filling in between. But don’t forget to apply the sticking paste in between of the first strip before placing the other one over it. It will allow it to stick firmly together and won’t break up when deep frying or baking.

Step 1

Cover all sides on by one and apply the paste on each side when wrapping it up.

Step 2

 

At this stage, you can keep them in freezer in a plastic sheet for 2-3 days prior cooking.
Deep fry till golden brown or bake them to desired color. I baked them in 180 degrees C preheated oven for about 10 minutes.

 

Kitchen Tip:

To preserve green peas, keep them in a polythene bag in the freezer.

Kitchen tip:

Cheese has a finite life. Born at the time of production, a cheese matures to its prime ripeness when its flavor is perfect for eating. Once past its prime, cheese dies. Proper storage and handling can prolong a cheese’s life.
