500 g, chopped

Frozen green peas

½ cup(s), thawed

Ground coriander

2 tsp

Ground cumin

1 tsp

Ground turmeric

½ tsp

Sea salt

1 tsp

1 tbs, pomegranate

Reduced-fat puff pastry

2 individual, just thawed

Egg(s)

1 medium, lightly beaten

99% fat-free plain Greek yoghurt

200 g

Fresh mint

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C or 180°C fan-forced. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper. Boil, steam or microwave potato until tender. Drain. Roughly mash and stir in peas, coriander, cumin, turmeric, salt and molasses.
  2. Cut each pastry sheet into nine 8cm squares. Place 1 tablespoon potato mixture onto half of each pastry square. Fold pastry in half to form a triangle and enclose filling. Pinch edges to seal. Place on prepared trays and brush tops with egg. Bake for 15–20 minutes or until crisp and golden.
