Ingredients

    Vegetable spray
    1 small onion, chopped
    225g minced beef
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/4 tsp black pepper
    1/4 tsp cumin

    6 sheets filo pastry (about 30cm x 42cm)
    lemon wedges, to garnish

Directions

Spray a pan to stir-fry the onion until soft.
Add the beef, salt, cumin and black pepper and stir-fry for a further 5 minutes. Add the egg and then the parsley and cook for 1 minute, stirring all the while.
Allow to cool almost completely then spread out the filo sheet with the short edge facing you. Place 2 heaped tbsp of the beef mix 5cm from the short edge. Fold both of the long ends into the middle then, beginning with the end nearest you roll the pastry up so that you end-up with a parcel some 10cm long and 4cm wide.
Repeat until all the mixture has been used. Add the remaining oil to a pan, heat over a medium flame and add the rolls. Brown on each side for about 3 minutes.
