Preparation of Colombian cassava empanadas

  1. The first step in making the empanadas is making the dough. To do this, peel the yucca, cut it into pieces and wash it.
  2. Put enough water in a pot to cover them and when it comes to a boil add it. After 5 minutes add the salt and cook for 10 minutes or until it softens.
  3. Remove from the water and reserve a little for the preparation of the dough. Mash the yuca with a fork or food processor.
  4. Place it in a bowl and knead it adding the butter, the cornmeal, the saffron and a little water. When you have a manageable and compact dough it will be ready. Reservation.
  5. To make the filling, wash all the vegetables well and chop them into small cubes. Add the oil in a pot and when it has the exact temperature add the onion and a little salt.
  6. Let it poach for a few minutes and when you see it become transparent add the pepper, the sweet pepper, the chives and the minced garlic.
  7. After 5 minutes, add the tomato and cumin. When the stew is ready, add the meat and cook for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, rectify the salt and when it dries, remove from the heat.
  8. Chop the boiled egg and potatoes into small pieces and add the meat and cilantro. Mix and you will have the filling ready.
  9. Put a plastic bag or sheet on the table, grease it with oil and place a ball of dough on it. Flatten with a rolling pin and add a tablespoon of filling in the middle without touching the ends. Close the dough into a semicircle and flatten the edges with your fingers.
  10. Close the dough into a semicircle and flatten the edges with your fingers. Make a cut with a plate on top of the plastic sheet and remove the leftovers. Repeat the procedure until you finish with all the dough.
