Pastry:
Sift flour and salt together. Cut margarine into small blocks and use fingers to rub margarine into flour until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
Mix cottage cheese into flour mixture.
Turn out onto a floured surface and bring together until a smooth and well–blended dough is formed, taking care not to over–handle.
Wrap in cling wrap and chill for a few hours.
Roll dough out in one direction, then fold.
Roll and fold again a couple of times, allowing dough to rest in between.

Filling:
Melt butter and sauté onion.
Add meat and braise in pot for 12 – 15 minutes, tossing continuously.
Add a little water and cook for 2 – 5 minutes; add mushrooms and peppadews, and continue to cook for another 3 – 5 minutes.
Add all spices and cook till meat is soft.
Stir in coriander and set aside to cool.

Assembly:
Preheat oven to 200 °C. Roll out dough to 3 mm thickness and use a 7 cm diameter round cutter to cut out pastry rounds.
Moisten edges lightly with beaten egg and place some filling in the centre of each pastry round.
Pinch the pastry closed at the top, creating a bag; twist top to ensure it is sealed properly.
Brush with beaten egg and sprinkle with sesame and poppy seeds.
Bake for 20 minutes or until golden.
Serve with chutney.
