F.A.Q.


home > recipes > appetizers > african turnovers
1 pound ground chicken ( I imagine could be beef etc. ) 1 small onion diced Filling: 1 small carrot small amt red cabbage 1 small onion some cilantro chopped seasoned salt to taste dash of chili powder to taste 1 pkg spring roll wrappers flour and water paste oil to fry My daughter works with a woman from Africa who makes these delicious turnovers in a triangular pocket shape. The turnover has a triangular pocket in which another flap covers the triangle pocket and the whole thing is again one triangular shaped appetizer. The turnover should be brown and crisp with a moist chicken and vegetable filling. Sauté ground chicken with some diced onion until cooked. Drain off any liquid from chicken. Grind or fine shred vegetables and press through strainer or cloth to rid excess liquid. Sauté the veges in a bit of oil until softened and tender. Drain off any liquid from vegetables and add to chicken. Cool. Mixture shouldn't have any excess liquid. Add dash of chili powder to taste along with salt and pepper to taste. Add some chopped fresh cilantro as desired Form and fill egg roll wrappers into a triangular shape pocket , sealing cover edges with a bit flour paste. Fry rolls in hot oil until browned and crisp. Drain and serve immediately. Note: filling may be more than needed depending on how many wrappers one has. You don't have to have a triangle shape, fill and seal as desired, making sure edges stick together so when deep fried filling stays intact.

dash of chili powder to taste along with salt and pepper to taste. Add some chopped fresh cilantro as desired

You don't have to have a triangle shape, fill and seal as desired, making sure edges stick together so when
deep fried filling stays intact.
