as you've got filo pastry why don't you make mince pockets and have roast spuds n veg!
Always goes down well in my house

should have said have filo pastry but not sure how to use it - how do i make mince pockets they sound nice?

just put your lamb in a bowl add a tspoon cumin a tspoon of paprika a tspoon caianne pepper a tspoon garam masala some salt and pepper some bread crumbs and an egg some lemon juice and if you have any fresh herbs bung em in mix all together with hands, roll into sausage shapes and grill serve with pitta and rice or cous cous

Cut the filo pastry into small circles(but big enough for some mince) and to close up.

i normally put gravy on the bottom then add the mince and bring all sides together and close together.

and chuck in the oven till nice n golden brown (yummy)

depending on how much filo pastry you have you can get quite a few.
My DD loves em, they are ideal for her.

you could fry lamb with all spices i mentioned then put it in filo pastry just get a sheet brush with melted butter put another sheet on top in opposite direction place some lamb in middle gather up pastry so it looks like a little sack then bake in oven

mmm thanks they sound lovely, how hot and how long for in the oven?

Or you could do keema mattar - basically mince lamb curry and peas.

TheMuppet Tue 10-Jul-07 15:58:25

i normally cook mince in saucepan before,
and once cooked put into pockets, and into oven for about 20-30mins. till golden brown

clutteredup Tue 10-Jul-07 15:58:28

ooh mercy that sounds good too, what do i put in the curry sauce?

Have a look at Nigella's recipe keema

I would ony use a pinch of salt tbh and less water. You can use chilli powder instead of fresh chilli and lemon instead of lime.

Hi sorry I ate very late last night as DH was in london, I went with the grilled sausage things with rice, thanks ELR very nice. By the time DH got home I was too hungry to fiddle with the filo pastry I lost my nerve , i thoguht I might burn them, but I will have a go as i love filo pastry parcels , I've just never done them myself. Thanks for all the recipies, i shall never have to eat shepherd's pie again. DC and DH love it but I'm so bored of it.
