Experiment: Indonesian pasties – Pastel Goreng

April 27th 2010

indonesian pasties I love Indonesian pasties or pastel goreng as they are sometimes called. If you want more info or pics search for “Pastel Goreng”. They are deep fried pastries with meat filling. For the recipe I followed a Dutch website. As these weren’t exactly perfect I wont post a complete recipe. I also had way too much filling for the amount of dough I made.

indonesian pasties I stuffed these with ground beef, rice noodles, garlic, onion, cube of beef stock, carrot, chopped boiled eggs and salt and pepper to taste.

The dough was a bit too firm, the recipe didn’t give out the amount of water needed. I think I’ll use more water next time. All in all, it wasn’t a bad attempt and we still enjoyed eating them. It’s a bit of a shame that you have to make big batches of these, mostly it’s just the BF and I.
