  • Pre heat the oven to 220C gas 7.
  • Heat the oil, then add the onions and garlic, then the spices and cook for a couple of minutes.
  • Next add the spuds and cook for a further 5-6 minutes, turning all the time.
  • Cover with a lid and steam the potatoes until cooked, probably be 8-10 minutes.
  • Once cooked remove the lid and cook until all the liquid has gone, then add the peas and coriander off the heat.
  • Season well with salt and pepper, then cool.
  • Lay the filo out and cut into 8cm squares, or slightly smaller.
  • Stick 2 pieces together with a little egg and spoon a large teaspoon of the mixture into the centre.
  • Egg the edges and fold up and squeeze the tops together, making it look like small money bag.
  • If you want to be a bit cheffy, then tie a fresh chive around the top to look like string.
  • Egg well then bake in the oven for 15 minutes until cooked and nicely coloured.
  • Serve warm but not too hot.
