For the Nigerian Meat Pie dough

The good news is that you don’t need to make any dough for this Meat pie recipe. Yes, the easiest meat pie recipe ever. What you’ll use as the crust is:

  • 8 medium tortilla wraps (shawarma wrap)

But if for some reason you don’t have tortilla wraps, you can make the meat pie dough and roll it out very thin.

  • 250g (2 cups) plain flour (All Purpose Flour)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 125g (0.3 lbs) Margarine
  • 2 pinches salt
