  • 2 chicken breast fillets (cut into very small pieces)
  • 2 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1 large onion (finely chopped)
  • 1 level tsp of ground coriander
  • 1 level tsp of ground cumin
  • 1 level tsp of chilli powder
  • 1 level tsp of turmeric
  • 1 baking potato (peeled and diced)
  • 326g can Asda Sweetcorn in Water (drained)
  • 4 tbsp Asda Mango Chutney
  • 270g pack filo pastry (defrosted if frozen)
  • 25g butter (melted)
  • Cook the chicken in 1 tbsp of the oil over a medium heat, stirring, for 3-4 minutes. Remove from the pan. Add another 1 tbsp oil and the onion. Cook until soft.

  • Add the spices and cook over a low heat, stirring, for 2 minutes. Return the chicken to the pan and add the potato and 100ml water. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes or until the potato is tender, stirring frequently.

  • Tip into a bowl and add the sweetcorn and chutney. Mix together and leave to cool. Season.

  • Pre-heat the oven to 190C/170C Fan/Gas 5. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper. Cut each sheet of pastry in half to make 2 long strips. Put one on a work surface. Keep the rest covered with a clean, damp tea towel or clingfilm so that it doesn't dry out. Mix the last tbsp oil with the butter.

  • Put 2 tbsp of the filling at one end of the strip, leaving a 1.5cm border. Take the right corner and fold diagonally to the left to make a triangle. Then fold over in the opposite direction and continue to fold until the pastry is used up. Put on a baking tray and brush with the butter mixture.

  • Repeat to make a further 11 samosas. Cook in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until crisp and golden.
