Makes: 4 

  • 1 package puff pastry
  • 250g - 300g leftover chicken tikka
  • handful flour
  • 1 tablespoon garam masala
  • 1 teaspoon paprika

Prep:5min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Extra time:20min cooling  ›  Ready in:35min 

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 C / Gas 6.
  2. Using the puff pastry roll out flat and cut into 8 equal squares.
  3. Place 4 squares onto a baking sheet and spoon the leftover chicken tikka into the middle of each square, making sure to leave about half and inch all around the outside.
  4. Place the remaining 4 squares of puff pastry on top and seal the edges together.
  5. Sprinkle the garam masala and paprika on top of each square. Using a sharp knife make a few slits on the top of each square for the steam to escape while baking.
