Default African Turnovers

African Turnovers

submitted by butterflydog

1 pound ground chicken ( I imagine could be beef etc. )
1 small onion diced

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. Saute 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. Saute 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.
