Ingredients

    1/3 cup coriander, chopped fine
    3 cloves garlic
    1 small onion
    tbsp curry powder
    Pinch cayenne pepper (optional)
    Juice and zest of 1 lime
    2 cups cauliflower florets, cooked extremely well

    lb Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled, cooked and mashed (about 1 cup)
    cup small green peas (keep frozen if using)
    6 12 x 17" phyllo pastry sheets (about 150g total)
    PAM or similar non-stick spray

Directions

Pre heat oven to 400F.
Process coriander, garlic, onion, curry powder, cayenne, lime juice and zest, and cauliflower in a food processor until it forms a paste.
Transfer to a bowl, and fold in chickpeas, mashed potatoes and frozen peas.
Lay a sheet of phyllo on a lightly floured surface.
Spray with PAM, fold in half and half again.
Place 1/6 of chickpea mixture in the centre of the sheet, brush edges with water and turn corners diagonally over filling, folding along open edges to seal.
Repeat with remaining sheets and filling.
Transfer to a sprayed baking tray.
Spray lightly with the PAM and bake 10 minutes.
Reduce oven temperature to 350F and bake a further 10 minutes or until heated through.
