Preheat the oven to 200ºC, gas mark 6. Put the potatoes in a saucepan of water and bring to the boil. Cook for 5 minutes. Add the peas and cook for 3 minutes more until the vegetables are cooked through.
Drain the vegetables and put into a large mixing bowl, then add the chilli powder, ½ tsp sea salt flakes and chaat masala and mix together with a potato masher. Season again to taste, then Allow to cool.
Lightly flour the work surface and the pastry, then roll it out into a rectangle, roughly 38x25cm. Cut in ½ lengthways. Divide the potato mixture in ½ and spoon each portion along the middle of each pastry rectangle, as if making sausage rolls. Brush the pastry edges with the beaten egg, roll up into 2 long cylinders and press the edges together to seal. Brush all over with beaten egg.
Cut each cylinder into 8 lengths and place on a baking sheet lined with baking parchment. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden and piping hot throughout. Serve warm.
