Aloo Pie is a lovely reminder of the Caribbean. They are spiced vegetable pasties that are gorgeous hot and cold all year round. Use in a picnic, lunch and dinner.
In a medium- large skillet, add oil, onions, garlic, ginger and sauté, for about 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly to prevent any burns.
Then add, cumin, hot sauce and paprika, and continue stirring with a heavy wooden spoon, about 2 minutes.
Add boiled potato cubes, and corn. Slightly smash the potatoes, corn and peas then thoroughly mix until ingredients are fully combined, add green onions, and white pepper and a little bit of water. Simmer for about 2 minutes. Put the cilantro into the mix and check the flavour. Add salt and pepper to taste. Remove from the heat and let it cool.
