Pastel Goreng (Indonesian Fried Pastry)

This is my favorite snack... fried pastry filled with vegetables, egg and chopped meat. You see the filling is quite heavy, so sometimes I eat this as my lunch.


250 gr flour
60gr Butter
60ml Cold Water
1/2tsp Salt
1 tbsp Oil
1 Egg

Oil to fry
Boiled potatoes, finely chopped
2 Carrots, finely chopped
100 gr Chopped meat
3 Garlic, finely chopped
Bean thread vermicelli (so-un)
2 Hard-boiled eggs, finely chopped

1. Make the filling first. Heat oil and fry the garlic until fragrant.
2. Add meat & carrots. Fry until meat and carrots done.
3. Then season with salt, pepper and sugar.
4. Add so-un and potatoes, then last one, add hard-boiled eggs. Mix well and leave aside to cool.:

1. Mix the flour with margarine, egg, and salt.
2. Knead well and then add water little by little. Let it rest for 1/2 hour. Then put a tablespoon of Oil and knead again until smooth.
3. Roll the dough into paper thin. Cut the dough into circles 8 cm in diameter.
4. Take a tbsp of filling and place in center.
5. Fold pastry over to make half circle and crimp at edges.
6. Deep fry in hot oil until golden brown.
