sweet potato and pea puffs- method!
The first thing that you want to do is finely dice your sweet potato and then finely dice your onion. Once you have done that, set it on a plate to the side!
Then, finely chop the coriander. It doesn’t need to be a specific shape, just roughly the same size.
Weigh out your oil and pour it into a pan, add the cumin seeds and fry for one minute. Then, after that minute add the onion, sweet potato, peas, crushed chillies, garam masala and turmeric. Allow them to cook and soften, but do not overcook and burn.
Add in the water, lower the heat and simmer gently for 8-10 minutes until the water
Remove the pan from the heat onto a pot stand, stir in the coriander and lemon juice then season to taste with salt and pepper.
Leave the mixture to cool down. completely.
Then roll out half of the pastry on a lightly floured surface to a 20cm x 20cm square, if you do not want to be too precise, have a little fun with it!!.
Cut out the pastry into 4 equal squares. Repeat with the other half of the pastry, against I said, you can just have a bit of fun with it if you would like, but this is the main specific way.
Divide out the filling equally amongst the eight squares, placing it in the middle, Then, lightly brush alone g edges of the pastry with the beaten egg. If you want, you can season at this point or just wait to taste the result to decide if it needs seasoning!
Fold the pastry over to form a triangle, pressing firmly along the edges with a fork to seal. You can make designs I n your pastry with a fork as well if you fancy, but be careful not to burst through to the filling.
Place the pastry’s onto a baking tray, lightly brush with egg and a pastry brush and then sprinkle over with sesame seeds.
Chill the pastry for at least 10 minutes before going into the oven.
Once chilled, bake the pastry for 20 minutes until well-risen and golden brown.
Serve hot on 4 individual, clean warm plates and finish with an appropriate dressing also taste and season as required!
