  • Drizzle a lug of oil into a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat, add the onion, Korma Curry Powder, Cumin and cook for 8 minutes, or until softened but not coloured. Stir in the Garlic, Ginger, Fennel, Ground Coriander and the leftover roast veg. Mix well and then crush gently with a potato masher – don’t overdo it: you want a fairly chunky mixture. Leave to cool.

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C, 350°F, Gas Mark 4

  • Unroll the filo pastry and cover with cling film and a damp tea towel. Peel off one piece and keep the rest covered so that it doesn’t dry out.

  • Lay the pastry sheet flat on a clean surface and brush with melted butter. Fold in one third lengthways towards the middle. Brush again with the butter and fold in the other side to make a long triple-layered strip.

  • Place one rounded teaspoon of the filling mixture at one end of the strip, leaving a 2 centimetre/ 1 inch border.

  • Take the right corner and fold diagonally to the left, to enclose the filling and form a triangle.

  • Fold again along the upper crease of the triangle. Keep folding in this way until you reach the end of the strip.

  • Brush the outer surface with more butter.

  • Place onto a baking sheet and cover while you make the rest of the samosas. Sprinkle over a few sesame seeds, if using.

  • Bake in the centre of the oven for 30-35 minutes, or until golden and crisp, turning halfway through the cooking time.

  • Serve samosas on a sharing plate with a bowl of chutney.
