Homemade Party Snack Recipe

I am Stella from Sri Lanka
This is a great recipe for your next party. They’re shaped like a nurse’s cap! Try this recipe.


100 grams Flour, All Purpose
1.2 milliliters Salt To Taste
25 grams Butter, Chilled
½ whole Egg Yolk, Beaten
50 milliliters Water Cooled
7.4 milliliters Olive Oil
2.5 milliliters Garlic, Chopped
14.8 milliliters Red Onion, Chopped
150 grams Smoked Or Pre-cooked Salmon, Crumbled
1.2 milliliters Pepper
1.2 milliliters Salt To Taste
½ whole Egg, Beaten (for Egg Wash)
First, make the dough: Sift the flour into a large bowl. Add salt. Mix. Rub the butter into the flour with your fingertips until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
Next add approximately 1/2 of an egg yolk and the water. Mix well using your hands. Try to work quickly.
Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill for 10 -15 minutes
Make the filling: In a pan heat 1/2 table spoon olive oil over medium high heat, add garlic and mix until slightly softened. Next add onion and salmon. Mix and saute until onion is softened and everything is heated through. Add pepper and salt. Mix well.
Now take the dough and roll out into a large square that is about 1/8 inch thick, using a rolling pin. Cut it into 6 rectangles ( 4 x 3 1/2 inch) using a pastry cutter.
Now place one teaspoon of filling mixture in the center of each rectangle. Now fold the rectangle in half lengthwise. Don’t press down corners yet. Next, hold the rectangle lengthwise and bring the upper left and lower left corners together so that you’ve got a curved shape – kind of like a nurse’s cap (see photo).
After that place snacks on greased baking tray, press down all of the dough edges and take the remaining 1/2 beaten egg and brush over snack.
Bake at 200 C for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
