Instructions
1

Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan-forced. Thinly slice the brown onion. Cut the carrot (unpeeled) into 1 cm cubes. TIP: Cut the carrot to the correct size to ensure it cooks in the allocated time. Grate the potato (unpeeled). Peel and crush the garlic. Melt the butter.

2

Heat a good drizzle of olive oil in a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the onion, carrot and potato and cook, stirring occasionally, for 8-10 minutes, or until tender. TIP: Add a dash of water if the filling is sticking to the pan! Add the garlic and curry powder and cook, stirring, for 1-2 minutes, or until fragrant. Remove from the heat, add the salt (see ingredients list), crumble in the fetta and gently stir to combine.

3

Lay 1 sheet of filo pastry flat on a clean surface. Brush the filo with some of the melted butter, then lay another sheet on top. Spoon the samosa filling (1/4 for 2 people / 1/8 for 4 people) on one side of the pastry. Fold the long edges into the centre, and then fold in the left short edge. Keep folding to enclose filling, ending seam-side down. Repeat with the remaining mixture and remaining filo sheets to make 4 samosas for 2 people / 8 samosas for 4 people.

4

Place the parcels, seam-side down, on an oven tray lined with baking paper. Brush each parcel with some of the melted butter and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until golden.

5

While the samosa parcels are baking, finely chop the coriander. In a small bowl, combine the coriander and Greek yoghurt. Season with a pinch of salt, sugar and pepper. Set aside. Cut the cucumber into 1 cm chunks. In a medium bowl, combine olive oil (1 tbs for 2 people / 2 tbs for 4 people), the vinegar and the honey. Add the cucumber and mixed salad leaves and toss to coat. TIP: Toss the salad just before serving to keep the leaves crisp.

6

Divide the cheat's veggie samosas and salad between plates. Serve with a dollop of coriander raita.
