  • For the dough:
  • 1½ cup all-purpose flour or 250 g
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon instant dried yeast
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup warm water or 90 ml
  • For the filling:
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 400 g minced beef
  • 2 cubes MAGGI® Chicken Bouillon
  • 1/3 cup hot water or 90 ml
  • 2 small finely chopped onions or 100 g
  • 5 tablespoons ketchup or 50 g
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese or 100 g
  • 3 medium cucumbers, pickled, sliced or 100 g
  • 1 medium tomato sliced or 100 g

How to Prepare

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine all-purpose flour, salt and yeast. Add oil and begin kneading the dough. Once the oil is absorbed, add warm water. Knead into an elastic dough.
  2. Shape the dough into balls 3 cm in diameter. Cover and set aside in a warm and draft-free place and allow to rise and double in size (about 30 mins).
  3. Dissolve 2 MAGGI® Chicken Bouillon cubes in hot water and set aside.
  4. Heat vegetable oil in a frying pan. Add the minced beef and fry until cooked. Add MAGGI® Chicken Bouillon cubes and water and simmer over medium heat until all the liquid is absorbed.
  5. Once the dough has proofed, roll on a floured surface using a rolling pin. Roll out the proofed dough ball into a flat disk about 15 cm wide.
  6. Spread about a teaspoon of ketchup in the center and add the same amount of finely chopped onions. Top with a tablespoon of cooked beef, and cheese, pickles and tomatoes. Pinch the 4 opposite corners of the dough to form a bundle with the sides sealed.
  7. Repeat this step for the remaining dough and filling.
  8. Bake at 190°C in a pre-heated oven for 10 to 15 mins or until the pastry is golden and cooked.
  9. Serve with French fries and additional condiments.
