  • For pastry flowers:
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 400 g minced lamb
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/3 cup hot water
  • 2 cubes MAGGI® Chicken Bouillon
  • 1 cup prunes, pits removed and cut into small cubes
  • ½ cup fresh coriander leaves, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  • 36 pieces small samboosa sheets, about 15x15 cm each
  • ½ cup water, for pastry
  • For tahini sauce:
  • ¼ cup tahini
  • ¼ cup yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice

How to Prepare

  1. Heat vegetable oil in a saucepan and sauté the onion until golden. Add minced lamb and spices and continue frying until the meat is cooked.
  2. Add prunes, water and MAGGI® Chicken Bouillon and simmer on medium-low heat until the liquid is absorbed and the prunes become soft and plump. Add orange juice and remove from the heat.
  3. Allow the mixture to cool. Add coriander and orange zest and stir.
  4. Place a spoonful of the mixture in a 15x15 cm pastry sheet. Bring the edges together to shape a flower. Brush the pastry edges with a few drops of water to help the pastry keep its shape.
  5. Place the pastry flowers on an oven tray lined with wax paper. Bake in a preheated oven at 200°C until the pastry becomes golden in about 15 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile make the sauce by mixing tahini, yogurt and lime juice together.
  7. Spoon a tablespoon of the sauce on top of each bouquet before serving.
  8. Cooking Tip: To ensure that the pastry flowers retain their shape while baking, place and bake in small muffin moulds that are lightly greased to prevent sticking.
