These moreish snacks are made with Tunisian brik pastry. Similar to filo, but crispier, it's well worth keeping a pack in the freezer

Method

  1. Microwave or oven-cook potatoes until tender. Melt a knob of butter in a pan. Fry chilli for 30 secs, then spring onion whites and ginger for 1 min. Scrape flesh from potatoes, discard skins, then mash into the pan. Season, then stir in onion greens.
  2. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Unroll a pastry sheet and cut 3 x 6cm strips from the middle; discard leftovers. Brush strips with melted butter, place a spoonful of potato mix at one end, then fold up from side-to-side to make a triangular parcel. The filling should be completely sealed in. Arrange parcels on a baking sheet, brush with butter and repeat until you’ve used up all the filling.
  3. Bake for 20 mins until crisp and golden. Dust with a pinch of cinnamon; then serve.

these are SO SO lovely - i rolled the pastry in a spring roll shape instead of these triangles. the Ginger and sweet potato are a gorgeous conversation.

Yeah, you could use shortcrust or puff pastry. This would make little pasties rather than parcels, but I expect they would be just as yummy.

Does anyone know if you can use shortcrust pastry for this as my son cannot eat wheat and the only alternative I can make is shortcrust

Waitrose sells the pastry. It's called Feuille de Brick & you'll find it with the fresh pastry (usually near the butter).

Delicious. Used shallots instead of spring onions, but quick easy and good fun for the kids to make.
