We made them with a flavourful filling of red beans, peppers, scotch bonnet chillies, and oven-baked them until golden.

Step 1

For the filling, sizzle chopped onions, garlic, and chillies with oil in a skillet.

Step 2

Then, add the drained beans, diced peppers, and the herbs. Cook for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Step 3

Cut out the pastry sheet into 18cm x 7.5cm (7" x 3") rectangles and place one spoon of filling over one half of each rectangle.

Step 4

Wet the edges of the pastry. Then, fold the empty half of the pastry over the other to form a square.

Step 5

Now, use a fork to seal and crimp the pastry edges together, and then brush the patty with a little oil.

Step 6

Bake the patties at 200°C (400°F) for 25 minutes until puffy and crusty.

Step 7

Finally, let the pastries cool down on a wire rack and enjoy them warm or cold.
