4oz Plain White Flour
4oz Margarine
Pinch Salt

2lb Potaoes
1 Medium Onion
3 or 4 Cloves Garlic
3 Tablespoons Shoyu (Soya Sauce)

Method

  1. First of all mix the flour and margarine together with your fingertips until you end up with something akin to bread crumbs.
  2. Gradually add enough cold water to form a dough.
  3. Refrigerate for an hour.
  4. To make the filling, start off by cubing the potatoes and cooking until very soft.
  5. Chop the onion, crush the garlic and then fry together in a little oil.
  6. Add the shoyu and black pepper and then mix with the potatoes, along with a little of the potato water to make the mixture nice and creamy.
  7. Spread the mixture out in a pastry-lined baking tray.
  8. Grate the cheese and then spread it out over the potato mixture along with the dried parsley.
  9. Cook in a moderate oven (Gas Mark 5) for about 40 minutes.
