Hice estas ricas empanadas de cazón guisado y quería compartir la receta que aprendí de mi madre, a ella le daba gusto hacernos a todos en la casa empanadas, disfrutando de un buen momento. Les cuento como las preparé al estilo de mi mamá.
Made these delicious stewed dogfish empanadas and I wanted to share the recipe I learned from my mother, she enjoyed making empanadas for all of us in the house, enjoying a good time. I'll tell you how I prepared them in my mother's style.
Harina de maíz
Harina de trigo
Lo primero es hacer la masa. Esta se prepara con harina de maíz. Yo coloqué 5oogrs de harina de maíz y 150 de harina de trigo, le añadí media taza de azúcar y una pizca de sal, agregué agua y amasé hasta lograr la consistencia adecuada, ni muy blanda ni dura.
The first thing to do is to make the dough. This is prepared with corn flour. I put 5oo grs of corn flour and 150 grs of wheat flour, added half a cup of sugar and a pinch of salt, added water and kneaded until I reached the right consistency, neither too soft nor hard.
After having the dough and the filling, which in this case is dogfish, I start with a small ball of dough and place it on a plastic sheet that serves as a support where I can make this ball spread out to place the dough.
For this process it is necessary to moisten the hands and after having the size and thin thickness I put the filling.
Then I turn the dough with the plastic wrap and with a plate over this mixture I cut it so that I have a perfect half circle. I remove the rest of the dough.
When making empanadas with various fillings, my mother made holes in them with her little finger and knew which filling she made according to the number of holes or without them. That's how I learned from her.
Then I take them to a very hot frying pan and let them brown on both sides.
Since there are several of us in the house, we have to make a good amount for everyone.
We like them to be golden brown and enjoy them with a good hot coffee or coffee with milk.
I hope you liked it and can also make it.
