  1. Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Heat half the oil in a non-stick frying pan. Tip in the onions and cook until soft and golden, about 8-10 mins.

  2. Meanwhile, boil the potato cubes for 5 mins, until just tender, then drain. Tip into the softened onions and fry for 2 mins more. Stir in the curry paste and cook for 2 mins. Pop in the peas, plus 1 tbsp water. Cook for 1 min, give everything a good mix and season. Tip into a bowl to allow to cool slightly.

  3. Brush half the filo half-sheets with some of the remaining oil, then lay the remaining sheets on top so you have 4 x double layers. Spoon a ¼ of the potato mix along one edge of each, leaving a bit of space at each end. Fold in the ends then roll up to seal. Place seam-side down on a baking sheet, brush with the remaining oil and bake for 20 mins, or until crisp. Serve warm with a dollop of mango chutney and a tomato & onion salad, if you like.

A bit bland, so the second time, I added some tumeric and chillies. It came out pretty good. Easy and healthy enough.

Easy to make, very tasty and looked like I'd bought them! Served with rice and chutney. Will definitely make again.

I am in love with filo pastry! being from India and as usually one would have to make something like that from scratch Making rolls or Samosas would not be easy.I enjoyed using same recipe to be samosa cutting it lengthwise and then folding triangular.I added turmeric as usually we would see lots of Bombay Samosas Filling to be yellow in colour.

Delicious, I ate these with the mint chutney recipe I found on this web site.

Just finished making these and gave them a try. Brilliant idea for low fat snacks at work, I only take half though as they're quite big! I used 1 cal spray oil on the pastry to take down the fat content some more. I will half again the pastry and make smaller ones next time I think. Great tasting I will probably experiment with filling.

We really enjoyed this. WIll try again experimenting with different curry pastes. I was surprised at how much it made. Will follow others' advice and make smaller ones next time.

Re last post snipslop, yes these can be frozen providing the pastry you use is fresh NOT frozen. Hope this helps

Does anyone know if these could be frozen?, thinking of making them in advance for a party. Many thanks :)

Excellent very tasty and easy to make. Have made them several times.

This is a wonderful addition to any curry, and looks quite impressive for guests. I agree that there is a bit too much filling recommended, but use your judgement and it will be just fine. We have cooked these many times now.

These are fab!! I made smaller ones to have for my lunch at work and all my colleagues commented on how good they looked and smelled!

Easy and very delicious... perfect for a packed lunch, and super healthy!!!

The explanation of the filo was a bit complex...I found it easier to brush whole sheets with oil, then fold in half!

I also found too much filling for 4 rolls and found needed more oil and longer cooking to make crispy.
Tried the recipe from the magazine but although says serves 4- not a meal in itself. Wouldn't do again but might adapt recipe or make the filling with a bit more spice.

fabulous.. we had them for lunchboxes. great change from sandwiches. my partner commented that everyone at work raved at how great they smelled!

Scrummy! my husband said these were outstanding! praise indeed

These were fab, the filo pastry is a bit fiddly to work with but as they roll the tears are covered up, and they stayed together when cooking.
There's a lot of filling for just 4 rolls, next time i'll do 6 smaller rolls, but i'll definitely be making them again. Easy peasy but impressive.
