DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
  • To make the pastry, combine flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt in bowl.
  • Mix in oil, warm milk, and beaten eggs until a soft dough is formed.
  • Cut the dough into small 2 inch balls.
  • Cover and let rest for 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile prepare the filling by heating the oil in a large frypan.
  • Add the chopped onions, and cook until they are soft.
  • Stir the ground meat into the pan and add the cumin, salt, and pepper. Fry until well cooked.
  • On a lightly floured work surface, roll out the pastry balls into 4-inch round circles.
  • Place a teaspoon of filling in the center of a rolled-out pastry.
  • Moisten the edges, fold, and press together to seal. You may optionally roll the edges inward for a decorative effect.
  • Place on a greased baking sheet.
  • Repeat the previous three steps for each pastry ball.
  • Bake for about 15 minutes or until lightly browned.
  • Serve warm.
