Blend the mushrooms in a food processor into a fine mushroom ‘mince’.

Sauté the onions in the olive oil with a good pinch of salt until softened.

Add the ginger and garlic as well as the garam masala and curry powder and fry for a minute before adding the beef mince.

Fry, stirring constantly, until the mince has cooked through.

Add the mushroom ‘mince’ and fry until just cooked through.

Add the chutney and a dash more salt if needed and stir through.

Remove from the heat and allow to cool for 15 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 190°C.

Cut the phyllo pastry into strips about 9cm wide. Brush 1 strip with melted butter.

Place a large teaspoon of the filling in the bottom left corner of the strip and fold it over diagonally to form a triangle and continue to fold upwards in this manner until you have a sealed samosa shape.

Repeat until the filling is finished.

Place all the samosas onto a baking tray and bake in the oven for 20 minutes or until golden brown.

Serve hot or cold with the minted yoghurt dip. (For the minted yoghurt dip – mix the yoghurt and mint sauce together in a small bowl.)

Tip of the day

White pepper
Use white pepper when making pale, creamy sauces or clear stock because it won't discolour the sauce.
