  2. Add meat and remaining ingredients.
  3. Cook until brown, and then add water
  4. Stir in the water and almond flour/coconut flour until it gets thick gravy-like consistency.
  5. Allow it to cool down completely before using with the pastry (refrigerate if necessary).
  6. *Dough*(Steps 6-13): Cut up and boil the green plantain for 15 minutes to help remove the skin.
  7. Drain and remove the plantain skin, then return to a boil for 20+ minutes (or until soft).
  8. Take the plantain out of the water and allow them to cool for 15 minutes, then combine them with egg and spices into a food processor to make a ‘dough’.
  9. Remove from processor and separate the dough into about 8-10 equal portions.

  11. Unfold the paper and place about 1tbsp. of the meat into the middle of the dough.
  12. Use the paper to fold the dough up and over so that it makes a semi-circle and press the edges down with your fingers to close the edges using the wax paper as the dough will be sticky. Then remove the paper.
