Preheat the oven to 180 °C. Grease a large baking sheet.

1 FILLING Heat the oil in a small saucepan, add the onion and cook over medium heat for 3 minutes or until soft. Add the potatoes and spices and cook for 5 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl and set aside.

2 PASTRY Unroll the sheets carefully on a work surface. Cover with a dry, clean tea towel then a slightly damp tea towel to prevent them from drying out.

A Take one pastry sheet and brush it with some oil. Layer another pastry sheet on top and brush with oil again.

B Spread 60 ml (1/4 cup) of the potato filling along the long side of the pastry, about 3 cm from the edge and 3 cm in from each end.

C Fold in the ends, then roll it up to enclose the filling and form a log.

D & E Shape the log into a coil and put it on the baking sheet.

3 Brush with a little oil then sprinkle with the sesame seeds, if using. Repeat with the remaining phyllo sheets and bake for 20 minutes.
