Kheema Meat Empanadas

By Rita Jamshed Kapadia No comments

Empanadas are perfect little pastries. The dough bakes (or air fries!) into a golden flaky crust that shatters beautifully.

We filled ours with a classic parsi kheema mixture, but you could fill yours with chicken or even beans and rice for a vegetarian version.

We used empanada dough bought from the market for the perfect empanada, but feel free to use pre-made pie crust or puff pastry.
