Empadinhas

Feed your appetite with a taste from Brazil!

Ingredients
  • 8 cups self raising flour
  • 18oz margarine
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 egg yolks, for brushing tops
  • Salt to taste

For the filling

  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • ½ cup green olives, diced
  • 2 cups chicken breast, cooked and shredded
  • 1 cup cooked mushrooms, diced
  • 2 tbsp. diced flat leaf parsley
  • 1 tsp. corn flour
  • 1 cup double cream
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Egg wash

Method

  1. To prepare the filling, sauté oil, onion, tomato and olives for 5 minutes.
  2. Add the shredded chicken, mushrooms, salt, pepper, and parsley. Let the mixture cook for another 10 minutes.
  3. Mix the flour in the cream and mix it into the mixture, stirring until thickened.
  4. Remove from heat and set aside.
  5. To prepare the shells, preheat your Purifry to 220°C.
  6. Mix the pastry ingredients together. If you find it is a little bit crumbly, add a small amount of water gradually until you get the right consistency. Roll out and using a circular cutter cut the pastry into circles.
  7. Place a large teaspoon of the mix in the centre of a circle. Egg wash round the edge of the filling and place another circle on top and seal. Egg wash the top. Place in a paper case and place in the Purifry and bake for 15 – 20 min or until golden brown.

Top Tip: Make a large batch and freeze before cooking. Get out defrost and cook when you feel like a Brazilian morsel!
