For the dip:
4tbsp natural yoghurt

Bunch coriander, finely chopped
2tbsp Mellow Yellow Rapeseed Oil
1 small garlic clove, crushed
Pinch salt & sugar
Makes 14 samosas.
Preheat your oven to 200°C/180°C fan.
In a large bowl, mix together your curry paste, mango chutney and yoghurt. Season well with salt & pepper.
Fold in your turkey, potato, peas and coriander.
Cut your sheets of filo pastry in half lengthways, to create 14 long strips of pastry.
Take one sheet of filo and cover the rest with a damp tea-towel or sheet of kitchen roll.
Brush the entire sheet of pastry with Mellow Yellow Rapeseed Oil, making sure to cover right up to the edges.
Place a large tablespoon of your filling on the bottom left hand corner of the pastry in a triangle shape. (To be really accurate, you can weigh your filling and divide it by 14)
Fold the pastry sheet over to encase the filling, the continue to fold up and over, forming triangles as you work up the pastry sheet, until you reach the top.
Repeat this process with all the pastry sheets, until you have used up all your filling.
Place your samosas on a baking tray and bake for 12-15 minutes, until golden.
For the dip, combine all your ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Serve with your samosas and enjoy!
You can prepare the samosas in advance and leave covered in the fridge, ready to be baked when needed.
