As you’re looking through this recipe, you might wonder how I’m calling my squares a pinwheels. Wheels are circles. I know that. I skipped a step while making this, and did not think it was really necessary wrap the cloth tightly around the roll or to secure the ends with a tie. I suffered the consequences. Well, not really suffered. I wasn’t serving Chef Ramsay or anybody else “special.” “Just” my brother, who worries more about taste than presentation. But lesson learned, because I personally would have liked circles more.
If you’re not using leftover mince meat curry or kebabs, just braise some meat with seasoning and toss it in as filling.
Pour some of beaten egg onto the rolled out dough, and spread it evenly across. Next, sprinkle the mince meat and bell peppers on the dough, leaving a 1 inch margin along the sides.
Place pinwheel onto the muslin cloth, and roll the cloth around it twice. Secure the end, tying tightly with a piece of string. Bring water to a boil, and then place the muslin wrapped pinwheel in the water, letting it simmer for 40 minutes.
Serve warm, and enjoy!
*I only used half of the dough since there are only 2 of us to eat, and I still had a little bit leftover in the end.
**Baking is not necessary and can be omitted. The sauce penetrates and makes for a more moist dish, which is what I personally enjoy more.
