3. Transfer everything into a large bowl and blend together the ingredients including the coriander and garam masala, leaving some potato chunks and lentils aside.

4. Cut the filo into rectangles and place it upwards in front of you, and spoon a bit of the mixture on the bottom corner. Fold a triangle across and continue folding a triangle upwards, until you get near the top. Butter the remaining edge and fold over, sealing the edges.

5. Finish off by brushing over with oil and placing in the oven at 180°C for 30 – 40 minutes.
