Recently I went into the kitchen to experiment with a modern twist on sausage rolls and pasties, and this is one of the creations I came up with.
My husband and I enjoy the kick spice brings to food. The twins are slowly getting used to more spicy food, but they prefer it quite mild. These sausage rolls are mild enough for the kids to enjoy, but they still have the flavour that my husband and I love in our food.
Whether you use the mix as a sausage roll or a pastie, the end result is still delicious and perfect for those quick and easy weekend meals, or in lunchboxes during the week.
I have made my own curry spice blend and have used it for the sausage rolls. It is a mild blend perfect for children. When using a store bought blend, make sure you add the amount that suits your family - start with a small amount and add as needed.
Prep 15 min // Cook 15 min
500g lamb mince
2 tsp mild curry powder (I used an EDMK creation but a store bought blend is fine adjust quantity to suit your family taste )
1 bag steam freeze peas, corn and carrot cooked
1 onion diced
3 cloves garlic crushed
1/3 cup tomato paste
1/3 cup coconut milk (or cream if preferred)
I egg lightly beaten
Heat 2 tbs oil in pan and saute garlic and onion for 2 minutes.
Add lamb and the curry powder and brown over a low heat for approx 5 min.
Add tomato paste and vegetables and stir in well.
Add coconut milk and simmer until sauce has thickened.
Remove from heat and cool mixture down in fridge.
Preheat oven to 180 degrees and lightly grease two baking trays.
Cut puff pastry in half length ways and place mixture in middle and form into a log.
Fold over pastry into the middle and brush beaten egg over it. Cut into bite size pieces and bake in oven.
Note: To make into pasties, cut circles from the pastry, place the mix in the middle and fold in half, then press the edges together with a fork to seal.
