Pattis is a Sri Lankan appetizer which can be used for tea time.
Ingredients for dough:
4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup margarine/butter
1 1/4 cups cold water, or as needed
In a medium bowl, stir together the flour and salt.
Add margarine into the flour & mix, until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Add water a few tablespoons at a time, until the mixture forms a dough & not sticky.
Then wrap the dough in a plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 1 hour.
Now make the patties. Dust some flour on a board and roll out the dough to about 1/8 inch thickness.
Cut circles with a pastry cutter. Spoon some of the filling on it.Then wrap & seal the edges with a fork.
In this stage you can keep the pattis in a deep freezer about 2-3 weeks & fry when you want.
Deep fry the pattis & serve hot.
