  • Cook for 5 min and then add the meat to the pot and cook again for1 minute,then dissolve a little amount of flour in water and pour it inside the pot and stir. then leave it for 1 minute,then put off the heat and bring down the pot. set it aside please.

  • Now rub a little amount of flour on your work table or smooth board and transfer the dough the dough then roll with your rolling pin.
  • Get your meat pie cutter and start cutting out.
  • Bring the pot of cooked meat,carrot and Irish potatoes,this is what you are going to do,you are going to be putting a little amount of it inside your already cut dough and close
