    Flavor Diva's Note:

    These are delicious curry-flavored pastries found in the Caribbean islands, particularly in Jamaica. Great as a snack or as a Jamaican meal compliment. I also enjoy them with a spinach, corn, and bean salad. I have used pre-packaged Crescent rolls (2 cylinders rolled out and cut into 10 circles or phyllo dough (15 sheets cut lengthwise to make 30 triangles) as a time saver. Not as good or as spicy as the handmade pastry, but sometimes there’s just not enough time. Store in the fridge for up to 5 days an reheat in microwave on medium heat.

      I made these yesterday. Took me way more than an hour but I tend to putz around when I'm in the kitchen. Followed the recipe exactly except I didn't have green onions (what a shame). These were great! Next time, I wouldn't use lamb though...I don't think you'd be able to tell the difference between the lamb and beef because of the seasoning....and lamb is really expensive here. Yum. I could eat these all day. Next time I might make the filling the day ahead so it's not such a time consuming mess (for me). Good, authentic recipe. I LOVE JAMAICAN PATTIES!

      Made these patties tonight with lamb and sweet potato for my DH and DD, and also filled some with a spicy blackeye pea and tomato mixture for myself. We all really enjoyed them and I will deffo be making them again. The pastry was easy to make (used food processor) and having read the previous reviews before I made this recipe, I only added 1/4 teaspoon salt to the filling. Thankyou for sharing this recipe :)

      Had been searching high and low for patty recipe. Moved form Hackney to countryside and the only thing I miss is the jamaican pattys. Oh and the Turkish food. ok all the variety of food in London. Made these last night. I was really pleased with how they turned out. My 6 year old gave them an 8 out of 10 only because they weren't quite spicy enough for him. My fault though....I accidentially put 1 tablespoon of cumin instead of curry! To balance i added ginger, tumeric, coriander and chopped fresh corriander and parsley but forgot the chilli pepper. I was really worried about how they'd turn out but they were quite something. My other son who hates pattys really enjoyed them cos they did not have the spice. I used chilli sauce as a dipping to give them some heat but they were really tasty without. Easy to make. Lovely pastry. All held together wonderfully. Thank you very much. I will be making these again for sure. xxxxx
