Patties are great Caribbean street food, not so very far from a Cornish pasty as an idea – both are meals in a casing you can carry and eat – so you can make patties or a dubbed-up version of a pasty using this recipe. The quantity you make is up to you: four is big enough for lunch for four average people and three enough for three big Cornish appetites.
Levi’s tip, If making a rough-and-ready Caribbean version of a pasty, put the filling in the middle of the rolled-out pastry, pull the pastry together on top and pinch together to form a ridge from end to end.
