Homemade Pasties

Total time
Recipe type: Lunch box
  • 7 sheets short crust pastry
  • 750 grams mince
  • 3 carrots
  • 3 potatoes
  • 3 onions
  • 6 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 6 tablespoons tomato sauce
  • 0.5 cup chutney
  • 1 egg
  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius. Lay pastry sheets out to thaw.
  2. Peel and grate potatoes, carrots and onions into a large bowl.
  3. To drain excess moisture from this mixture, pour it out onto a clean tea towel and then wring tightly until liquid no longer escapes.
  4. Add mince, tomato sauce, chutney and Worcestershire sauce, mixing thoroughly.
  5. I like to make the pasties look like cornish pasties, so use a bread and butter plate to cut a circle in the pastry.
  6. Heap the meat mixture into the middle of the pastry circle and bring up the edges of the pastry and twirl the edges to seal.
  7. Brush the middle join with egg and sit on a lined tray.
  8. Continue to make pasties until pastry and mixture has been used up.
  9. Towards the end of making the pasties, to minimise waste of pastry, I make some small, funny shaped pasties for the younger children.
  10. Place in the oven and cook for 10 minutes. Reduce the temperature to 180 degrees Celsius and cook for a further 20 minutes or until the pasties have turned golden.
  11. Serve with a side dollop of chutney!
