"This is an old traditional South African snack, simple and easy to make, and well worth trying as people seem to love them. The Afrikaans name is "Wasgoedbondeltjies", translated in the title! In these modern times I'd serve them with a bowl of Thai Sweet Chilli sauce as a dip. Please note that you can choose which pastry to use -- soda water pastry or puff pastry -- so you can either deepfry them, or bake the puff pastry bundles in the oven."

"This does make a good snack or lunch. It is great to warm up later as well. Made for ZWT4 for the Tastebud Tickling Travellers."
"I can see that these would be popular at a party. A great little snack to make if you have time - and well worth the time. I reckon this full recipe would make a lot more than 20 parcels. I made 500g of mince and then didn't finish the recipe that night. I steamed some veg and had that with some of the mince, which was delicious. Did the same for lunch the next day so it was probably about 300g of mince by the time I made the parcels. I managed to get 17 parcels out of it. I scaled the recipe down to 200g of flour but I think the quantity of butter is wrong. I ended using 130g of butter but 100g would have done, so half the recipe quantity. Having said that, that is the only thing I changed and I thought they were wonderful. The pastry is light and flaky. The filling is very tasty. Not something you would eat when watching your diet and a lovely treat. Made for ZWT4."
