4

While the filling is simmering, line a baking dish or lasagna dish with filo pastry. Grease the dish with a little melted butter before hand. Taking the filo two sheets at a time line the dish, brushing a little butter between each layer. We did three layers, which is 6 sheets of filo. Rotate each layer slightly as you place them so there is an over hang around the whole dish.

5

Add the filling.

6

Cut 2 sheets of filo in half and place on top of the filling, tucking down the sides if needed. Fold in all the over hanging edges into the center of the pie to create a lid, brush with melted butter and sprinkle with Mother Dukkah.

7

Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden.
