Dirty Mango Lassi
Rum Spiked Mango Cocktail
If like me you love anything wrapped in a flaky delicious pastry then every country something epic to offer you. Today it's all about the Caribbean and their very distinctive cooking style. If you tend to stick to the typical chicken and mushroom Ginster's pastry and haven't tried a Jamaican patty before then where have you been?
These patties have a very distinctive yellow pasty with a very slight sweetness that works so well with the spiced meat filling. It also gives a slight gingery, earthy flavour too. The classic filling is always made with beef, but if you don't eat beef then try it with lamb, pork or even Quorn. It should have a nice heat to it with the scotch bonnet pepper but if that is too hot for you then miss out the chilli and use a little chilli powder, always cook it to suit you and your family.
For my filling I have used classic flavours from the Caribbean of thyme, garlic, all spice, hot pepper and curry powder but I have added a few 'Hari' tweaks with a little garam masala and coriander. You can also add a chicken stock cube if you fancy any way here you go - I hope you try them and love them.
