All About That Pastry Dough
That quintessential yellow patty exterior is the result of turmeric powder being added into the dough. You’ll find many Jamaican beef patty recipes that call for turmeric because it gives these patties a natural, vibrant yellow hue. However, my recipe calls for both turmeric and Jamaican curry powder.
Although nice, I find the turmeric root to be quite bitter. Combining it with warm, earthy, and mildly spicy curry powder balances out the overall taste in the pastry. Both spices give just the right amount of vibrancy while also yielding a very tasty shell to envelope the filling. It’s tender, flaky, and buttery.
