In a medium bowl, stir together the flour and salt. Rub margarine into the flour, pinching into small pieces using your fingers, until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add lime juice. Add water a few tablespoons at a time, until the mixture forms a ball. Pat into a ball, and flatten slightly. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Mean while make the filling. There many options for this. You can follow Filling for Cutlets or Patties or follow the recipe below.

Now make the patties. Dust some flour on a board and roll out the dough to about 1/8 inch thickness. Cut circles with a pastry cutter, or a can. Spoon some of the filling onto the center, and then fold into half-moon shapes. Wet the edges with a bit of water and seal edges by pressing with the folk. Deep fry till golden brown and serve hot.
