PASTEL


This is a very popular street food of Brazil. Pasta dough is stuffed with various fillings, veg and non veg. and deep fried. Sugarcane juice is served as an accompaniment with this snack. This dough is available here in the supermarkets. It is the same recipe as pasta dough so you can easily try it out at home too..

For the dough:
Flour ... 1 cup
Olive oil .. 1 tbsp
Water ..... as needed.
( Those who eat egg can add 1 egg to it )
 Knead the dough and rest it for 1 hour wrapped in a plastic paper.



(I have used the ready dough that we get here..)



For the Filling :
Cheese ... grated
Tomato slices
Basil .... fresh or dried
Oil ... to fry



Method:
1. Roll out the dough into rectangular shape.
2.Place the filling on one half of the rolled dough, wet the edges and fold the other half over it pressenf the edges with your fingers to seal them.
3. Deep fry and serve them immediately.
