A NOTE ON MEASUREMENTS
We work with chefs from all around the world, which is why we include both imperial (cups/ounces) and metric (grams) measurements. To achieve best results, we highly recommend that you utilize a kitchen scale and follow the metric measurements when possible.
Place a saucepan over medium-high heat and add the olive oil. Once the oil is hot and beginning to shimmer, add the chopped onion, chopped carrot, red pepper, and a garlic clove. Cook until gold, stirring occasionally. Chop the cauliflower head and add to the pan. Add the yellow curry, salt, pepper and oregano. Cook for 4-5 minutes on medium heat.
Add the water to deglaze, using a wooden spoon to scrape up any brown bits that have accumulated on the bottom of the pan. Cook for 3 minutes.
Remove from heat and let cool, then add the contents of the pan to the mixing bowl with the chopped egg.
Combine the water, butter, and salt in a small saucepan over medium heat. Once the butter is melted, add the flour and mix vigorously until you achieve a smooth dough. Knead the dough for 5 minutes, then set it aside to rest for 10 minutes.
Divide the dough in 24 pieces, and form each piece into a round ball. Lightly dust your work surface with flour and use a rolling pin to roll each ball into a circle about 4 inches (10 cm) in diameter and ¼ inch (½ cm) thick.
Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Fill the dough circles with 1 tablespoon of filling. Fold the dough in half, and press the edges together to seal.
Crack the remaining egg into a small bowl and whisk with a fork. Lay the empanadas on your baking sheet, working in batches if necessary so that there is some space between them. Using a pastry brush or your fingers, brush the tops of the empanadas with the beaten egg. Bake until golden brown, about 12-15 minutes.
Combine all the ingredients for the sauce and add salt & pepper to taste. Serve alongside baked empanadas.
