  1. Simmer the potatoes for 8-10 mins until just tender. Drain and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large frying pan and cook the onion over a high heat for 3-4 mins until golden and turning crispy. Reduce the heat to medium, add the pepper and cook for 5 mins. Stir in the greens, tomatoes, garlic and ginger. Cook for 2 mins, then stir in the chilli, spices and potatoes. Cook for 1-2 mins more; season.
  3. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C, and line a baking tray with nonstick baking paper. Lay a sheet of filo pastry on a work surface and cut into 3 pieces of about 10 x 30cm. Brush around the edges with the melted butter and spoon 1 tbsp of the potato mixture at a short end, leaving a small border. Fold over the edges, roll up and transfer to the lined tray. Brush with a little more butter and sprinkle on some poppy seeds. Repeat with the remaining pastry and mixture to make 15.
  4. Bake for 25 mins until crisp and golden, then serve with raita or tzatziki, if you like.

Freezing and defrosting guidelines

Freeze filling only. To freeze, cool the filling before rolling and store in a freezer-proof container. Defrost fully and continue from step 4. In order to enjoy optimum flavour and quality, frozen items are best used within 3 months of their freezing date.
