Do you like pastel?

Pastel is a typical fast-food in my place, consisting of half-circle or rectangle-shaped thin crust pies with assorted fillings, fried in vegetable oil. It is like a crispy and brownish fried pie. The filling can be ground meat, shrimp, or mixed vegetables. I really like this food. This evening I bought some pastels and a portion of spaghetti as my dinner. I bought the pastel with mixed vegetables filling. Have you ever tried it? Is there kind of this food in your place? What is its name in your place?

It is called ''patte'' in my country. It is definitely very nice to have.

It looks very tasty. Seems similar to what we call a patty - but it is baked not fried.

It must be healthier as it is baked. I could only find the fried ones here.

In South India the dish you are calling it Gujiya is known by the term KAJI KAYA.

@Ayuriny We also have this kind of food. I just say that it looks like croissant because of the photo. I am aware that pastel is not baked. It really looks so yummy.

The closest thing in the US is chicken pot pie. It has a crust and is filled wih chicken and veggies. We also have pastries called turn-overs that have fruit fillings.

They look and sound really nice. I'm not sure what they'd be called here. Edit: Just read some comments. They are samosas here too.

Have you heard of curry puffs? They are very similar to Indonesian pastels and we have them here too. They are usually available in Singaporean/Malaysian places.

This picture is exactly like our very chilean empanadas. I like them very much. I specially like the cheese ones that I eat while the cheese is still mealed. Others I love are the meat ones, made with a mixture of ground meat and fried onions.

In India, the chicken will be replaced with Potatoes. Hence we call them SAMOSA having Potatoe and Onion filling.

@Ayuriny Yes, it has some curry taste - some has potatoes in it, some has chicken or meats as well. I have tasted pastel, and I think I like the filling better than these curry puffs.

They look similar to Pastel. But I think the filling must be curry.
