  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.

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.

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.
