Pastechi keshi for in the airfryer / Antillean cheese patties

door Linda Terrizzi

An airfryer is a device with which you can fry without fat. It works on the basis of hot air that is quickly guided through the baking area. Faster than an oven and much healthier than the deep fryer! You can bake fries or snacks with it and you can even cook a cake in it.

The devices have been on the rise in recent years, because it offers a healthy alternative to frying. Of course, it saves a lot of fat (and bad smell!) When you use hot air to bake your snacks and fries.

We also saw the question very often on Antilliaans-Eten.nl: “Can you bake Antillean snacks in the airfryer?”

Unfortunately I couldn't answer that until recently. I had once eaten fries that my sister had made in her airfryer, but I had never worked with the device myself. And then the manufacturer suggested that I test out one of their devices and try preparing our traditional snacks in it. Of course I didn't let myself be told twice!

My experiences with the device

Admittedly, my first experiences weren't great right away. This is mainly due to the fact that I never read manuals and I don't stick to recipes. Usually during cooking / baking I can judge whether something is going well or just needs a higher or lower temperature.

If you also cook this way, I want to tell you that with this device you really have to put your pride overboard and stick to the recipes. An airfryer is not a normal fryer and not a normal oven. Fortunately, you can find a handy list in the booklet that comes with the airfryer, containing the temperatures and baking times of different dishes.

Do you stick to that? Then it will be all right! An airfryer does what it promises: You can really fries, cheese balls, pastechi, empana, spring rolls and cake without fat (and faster than in an oven.)

Baking Antillean snacks without fat

So I tried out a range of Antillean snacks. spring rolls and 'batata' (fried potatoes) went well of course. Cheese balls also became nice and brittle in it, but were slightly less 'nicely round' than in the deep-fat fryer. All in all, a delicious way to prepare them… I was really pleasantly surprised!

And then it was time for the pastechi...

I tried the pastechi in the 'normal' way and then fry 'normally' in the airfryer instead of in the fat. That worked in itself, but the dough of the pastechi got a little tough. Edible, but not a treat. I decided to 'tweak' the recipe until I got the good result and I dare say that it was more than successful!

Adjustments in the recipe

As you can see in the video below, I finally managed to get beautiful, golden brown colored pastechi bake in the air fryer. The dough is thin, airy and crispy… just like a pastechi has to be! I made some adjustments to the recipe for this. For example, I omitted the egg that is normally in the dough, replaced the water for milk and exchanged the baking powder for soda and vinegar. That's it!

If you follow this recipe, I am sure you will pastechi from the airfryer become a success! And for the filling you can of course just take what you like best. In this case I opted for grated cheese. Nice and easy! Of course you can pastechi also fill with chopped, tuna or any other filling.


INGREDIENTS:

  • 500 gr wheat flour
  • 200 ml milk
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon of vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons of sunflower oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • for the filling: grated cheese

PREPARATION PASTECHI KESHI FROM THE AIRFRYER:

  1. Mix the wheat flour with the baking soda, the salt and the sugar.
  2. Make three wells in the mixture.
  3. In one of the holes you pour the oil, in another the vinegar and in the last the milk.
  4. Knead it into a smooth dough.
  5. DO NOT let the dough rest (!)
  6. Take a scoop of dough the size of a walnut and roll it out as thin as possible. This is best when you dust your work surface and rolling pin with flour.
  7. The dough must be really (!) Thin. About 1mm thick gives the best result.
