Method

  • Pre-heat oven to 200°C (fan-forced), 200°C (conventional).
  • Let 3 sheets of Puff Pastry thaw out on the bench.
  • Cut each sheet in quarters.
  • Take a spoon of your curry mixture and place in the centre of each smaller square.
  • Bring opposite corners up to a point and pinch together. Pinch closed the parcel edges, making sure you remove as much air as possible from the parcel.
  • Fold over the pastry edged to create a seal. Repeat steps 3 - 5 for each curry parcel.
  • Place curry parcels on a tray lined with baking paper.
  • In a small bowl, whisk one egg. Brush the egg over each parcel. Ensure you coat your pastry evenly to achieve an evenly cooked, golden colour.
  • Place your tray in the oven, and cook for 15-20 mins.
  • Remove from the oven, and sprinkle with coriander leaves. Serve with a side of yoghurt.
