  • 2 large or 3 medium potatoes (about 650-675g), peeled and cut into 1cm pieces
  • 100g frozen peas
  • ½ tsp chilli powder, or to taste
  • ½ tsp Cooks’ Ingredients Chaat Masala
  • plain flour, for dusting
  • 500g shortcrust pastry
  • 1 British Blacktail Free Range Medium Egg, beaten


  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.
