Samosas are traditionally deep-fried, but in this delicious version they are made with crunchy filo pastry, brushed with a little oil and baked. Serve with fruit chutney or yoghurt raita and a mixed salad for a casual, light lunch.

This salad not only looks delicious but tastes so good that you might become addicted to it! Beef mince, fresh ginger, garlic, shredded cabbage, carrots and peppers are tossed in a spicy sesame-soy sauce dressing. Serve with fresh coriander and lime wedges.
