Print Friendly and PDF


This is a relatively easy to make pie that seems to be a favourite of a lot of people, especially kids! Extremely filling and delicious!


Ingredients
For the pastry
400g all-purpose flour
1 egg
50 ml olive oil
½ level teaspoon salt

For the filling
1 kg potatoes grated
1 onion grated
200g rice for soup
400g evaporated milk
150 ml olive oil
1 tablespoon flour
1/3 level teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon dried mint
Salt & pepper to taste
250 ml water


Preparation
Pastry
Put the pastry ingredients into a mixing bowl and add enough water to make a pliable dough.

Knead well into a dough.

Cover with cling film and set aside to rest while you’re preparing the filling.

Filling
Boil the rice in the water for 5 minutes.

Transfer the boiled rice to a mixing bowl with the remaining ingredients and mix well.



Grease a round 25cm oven dish.

Spread the pastry in the oven dish (not too thinly) allowing it to go over the edge.

Place the filling on top of the pastry in the oven dish.

Fold in the pastry that has gone over the edge over the filling (see photo).

Brush some of the juice from the filling over the folded-in pastry, making sure none of it goes down the edge to the pie below.

Bake in a pre heated oven at 180 degrees Celsius for 1 hour.



Eat and Enjoy!
