This is also a fav of mine. They're brilliant for buffets and you can also freeze them and have them with a curry. It's my own recipe and it's alot better than the ones you get at a curry house or in the shops.
1lb + 8oz potatoes, cut into cubes (boil them until al-dente) oil 1 onion (diced) 2 garlic cloves (crushed) 2 tbsp tomato puree 3 tsp Garam masala 1 tsp ground cinnamon 1 tsp ground fenugreek 1 tbsp medium curry powder 1/2 tsp turmeric 4 pods of green cardamon (ground up with a mortar & pestle) 2 tsp gound coriander 2 big hand fulls of frozen peas 3-4 fluid oz's natural yoghurt seasoning 1 packet of filo pastry melted margarine or butter
Method: 1. Pre-heat the oven onto Gas-mark 5, 190 degrees celcius or 375 degrees F.
2. Heat some oil in a frying pan. Fry the onions, when they have gone soft then add the garlic and fry it off for a minute more.
3. Add the spices stir, then add the tomato puree, the frozen peas, potatoes and the natural yoghurt. Season to taste.
4. Cut the filo pastry into strips, the width depends on how big you want the triangles.
5. Put one strip down, put some of the mixture onto the bottom of the strip and then form a triangle, so that the mixture is covered. fold it again and again until there is only a little bit of pastry showing at the top. put some marg/butter on the top and seal it off. put another strip down and put some marg/butter all over it and place the triangle on top of it and fold it up again. Repeat until you have run out off filling.
6. Put them into the oven for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.
7. serve with raita and a salad, enjoy.
IMPORTANT: Remember to cover your filo pastry with a damp cloth or it will go hard and you won't be able to use it.
