1 package of frozen puff pastry *
1 egg beaten
1 1/2 cups minced meat
2 tbsp oil
1/4 cup onion
1/4 cup tomatoes
1 tbsp garlic
1/2 tbsp ginger grated
1/2 tsp chillie powder
1/4 tsp pepper ground optional
1/2 tsp coriander powder
1/4 tsp cumin ground or garam masala
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp coriander leaves
1 tbsp lemon juice
Heat oil sauté the onion, garlic and ginger. Add meat, spices then the tomato and stir fry. Cook the meat covered until it is done. Add the lemon juice towards the end. Remove from heat and add coriander leaves. Cool the filling completely before putting into the pastry.
Cut the puff pastries into any size squares, put the filling and fold it like a triangle. Press the edges then brush with egg yolk. Before baking leave it in the fridge for about 5 minutes till the next batch is ready or till the oven preheats, this will help the pastries puff beautifully.
Bake at 375F for 15 to 20 minutes until puffed and golden in colour.
* For convenience I used store bought puff pastry made with vegetarian ingredients. Use any type of store or bakery bought puff pastry or use homemade puff pastry.
