Delicious Mini Pasties with Lentils and Coriander Filling

Name and pronunciation: paszteciki [pah-sh-teh-cheekey]Description: lentil-filled pastiesType of cuisine: Eastern European —  These little treats are my family and friends’ absolute favourites.

They should be delicately crispy on the outside and soft inside. 03They will be just as good defrosted, so try to make more and freeze a batch or two. They defrost in a matter of minutes! 04You can serve them on a plate, or wrapped in any kind of flat bread or a tortilla. My absolute favourite is Turkish Yufka bread (dürüm). 05Use any sauce you like on your falafels. I like it most with a mixture of mayonnaise and …
