  • 1 oz margarine
  • 4 oz onions skinned and chopped
  • 1 lb lean mince
  • 4 oz fresh white breadcrumbs
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 12 oz self-raising flour
  • 2 tsp curry powder
  • 4 tbsp oil
  • 4 tsp made mustard
  • 3 oz cheddar cheese grated milk, to glaze sesame seeds


  • Melt the margarine in a large pan and cook the onion until soft. Add mince and brown evenly, then add the breadcrumbs and lemon juice. Adjust the seasoning.
  • Sift the flour and curry powder into a bowl. Stir in the oil and enough cold water to bind to a firm but manageable dough.
  • Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to a rectangle 25 x 33 cm (10 X 13 inches). Trim the edges. Spread with mustard to within 2.5 cm (1 inch) of the edge and sprinkle with the cheese.
  • Spoon the savoury mixture down the centre. Dampen the edges and bring each edge over the filling. Seal.
  • Place seam-side down on a baking sheet. Roll out the trimmings and cut strips to garnish. Brush pastry with milk, arrange the decorative strips, reglaze and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Cut a slit on top and bake at 190°C (375°F) mark 5 for about 30 minutes.
