250 g
600 g
2 sprigs
Onion
1 large
Thyme
2 sprigs
1
butter
250 g
filo pastry
salt and pepper
to season

Preparation

  • Pre-heat the oven to 300F/150C
.
  • Rinse the quinoa and cook according to package instructions.
  • In a large roasting tin, lay a large sheet of foil. Place the lamb in the centre and top with the garlic, herbs and the butter and seal tightly
 to enclose the lamb entirely within the foil.
  • Place in the oven and roast for 2 1⁄2 hours. Leave to rest until cool enough to handle. Shred the lamb meat from the bone then add to a large bowl along with the quinoa.
  • Turn the oven up to 410F/210C.
  • Make the samosas: carefully pull off strips of filo pastry from the pack and brush them with melted butter. Place a tablespoon of the lamb mixture at one end of the strip and fold the strips into triangles
.
  • Brush the samosas with melted butter and place on a wire rack in the oven. Bake until golden brown, about 25-30 minutes.
