    MarraMamba's Note:

    They originally hailed from haiti and are now everywhere in the islands. This recipe is slightly different from either of the two others. From "Caribbean Cooking". Start it over night because the dough needs to sit 12 hours-not included in prep

      These were awesome patties Marra. Who knew that they would be so easy to make. The taste is very authentic. We loved these spicy meat treats. The flavor and texture are excellent. The flavor from the onions, curry, meat and scotch bonnets make this pattie special. The dough was lovely to work with and the filling was easy to make but did need more liquid so I added 1 1/4 cups of water in total. I will be making these again often. Thank you so much for sharing. I can't wait to make these for my dil's mother.

      Very delicious! When I put it the breadcrumbs, there wasn't any moisture left in the mixture to simmer it for 30 minutes, so I added more. The dough in this is really great; pliable and well-flavored.
