  • Add tomatoes and cook for another 2 – 5 minutes
  • Mix water and flour together and pour into curry. Cook until gravy thickens.  Curry must cool down before packing into pastry
  • Cut pastry into squares and fill – bringing the 4 corners of pastry together, pinch tightly leaving a small gap in the middle for air to escape. Cut off excess pastry taking care it’s not too thick.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 20-35 minutes at 200 oC until golden brown.
  • Oven temperatures please bake until fully cooked.
  • Alternatively divide 400g of pastry into 4 – spoon in filling, roll into logs and bake for 20-35minutes.
