To Make the Dough:

  • 3 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon instant yeast
  • 1/4 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 3/4 cups of water

For the Curried Potatoes:

  • 2 medium Russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes.
  • 1 small white onion, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh garlic
  • 2 tablespoon curry powder
  • 3 tablespoons water for the curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 habanero pepper
  • 1 cup of vegetable broth
  • 1 tablespoon Caribbean green seasoning (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 2 cups vegetable oil for frying


  1. In a standing mixer with the dough attachment, add all the ingredients for the dough besides the water. Add in the water slowly, while mixing on the number 2 speed.
  2. Mix the dough until it pulls away from the bowl. Rub the dough with a teaspoon of oil and cover with a dish towel and leave to rise for an hour in a warm place.
  3. While the dough is rising cook the potato.
  4. Place a heavy pan on the stove on medium heat. Heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil.
  5. Add the sliced onion, garlic, and pepper. Sauté until the onion is just softened.
  6. Add in the curry powder, the green seasoning, and the three tablespoons of water, mix.
  7. Let the curry fry for a minute. Add in the chopped potatoes, salt, and black pepper. Fry for about 2-3 minutes. The curry would be sticking to the potatoes. Add in the vegetable stock and turn to stove to low.
  8. Cover and cook until the potatoes are tender and the stock has cooked off. Remove from the heat and allow to cool a little.
  9. While the potatoes are cooling. Roll out the dough. Pinch off little golf ball-sized pieces, roll it out into little disc and fill with some of the potato filling. Roll back into a ball making sure the seams are sealed.
  10. Once all the dough has been filled and rolled, cover and let sit for 10 minutes.
  11. Heat the oil on the stove to 350 degrees. Once the oil is hot add the filled dough to fry 2-3 at a time depending on the size of your pot.
  12. Fry until golden brown and the dough is cooked through, should take about 6-8 minutes.
  13. Serve wrapped in paper towels and don’t eat it too fast as it will be super hot inside.
