The simple answer? No.

And yes. You can do so with a few tweaks to the original recipe.

It is not advisable to fry the Nigerian Meat Pie as it is because if you look at the recipe, the Nigerian Meat Pie dough contains a good amount of margarine. It’s on a 1:2 ratio with the flour. That is already too much oil going on in the dough and when you fry it, the quality of the crust will be compromised.

But there’s a solution.
