Sautée chopped garlic, onions, mushrooms, okra and aubergine. I like to keep the mushrooms big. It really doesn't matter what you add in though (just as well since okra can be hard to find sometimes)- just use what you like.
Add chopped paneer cubes (a yummy Indian soft cheese that I can find in Tesco's chiller aisles and Asian supermarkets)
Add 1 can chopped tomatoes, dollop of curry paste (I use 4 teaspoons for a pot that lasts me 2 nights)and as much garam masala as you like.
Simmer and cook until it smells really good.
Serve with wholemeal basmati rice and/or a mini naan bread.
This recipe is also yummy if you use puff pastry.
Sautée garlic, mushrooms, onion (or filling of your choice). You will soon notice that most of my recipes start this way :D
Leave this to stand while you arrange the filo sheets on a baking tray. I usually fold these a few times because they're really flimsy - use 2 per parcel if you like. I fold in half then half again to make a square-shaped parcel.
Spread a tablespoon or two of the sautéed mix onto each parcel. My most favourite filling for these is pesto and goats cheese. Add a tablespoon of pesto and a slice of the cheese, then fold over the filo and seal the edges with some water. Another good filling is feta with black olives.
Cook for about 15 minutes at between 150 & 200 - or until the pastry browns.
Oh, I should probably mention that I'm a horrible cook. So, the easier the recipe the better!
