An easy supper idea. The spicy filling of a samosa in the crisp pastry of a Cornish pasty. East meets West Country.
Any pastry will do, bought shortcrust, bought puff, or homemade. I used homemade quick flaky pastry which is my favourite pastry ever. I divided my pastry into five pieces and rolled each one into a circle about the size of dessert plate - 20cm/8 inches. I brushed the edges with beaten egg (you can use water) and filled them with this mixture.
I brushed the pasties with beaten egg before baking for 30 -40 minutes at 200°c (180° fan oven).
Use minced beef, turkey or pork instead of lamb.
Use chopped leftover roast meat.
Don't use meat -add chickpeas or beans.
Change the spices/omit the spices/add a spoonful of gravy or tomato paste to stop it being too dry.
Use different vegetables.
