  1. Peel and finely chop the onions and finely chop half the tomatoes. Place a large nonstick frying pan on a medium-low heat with 1 tbsp olive oil, add the onions and cook for 10 mins, then stir in the curry paste and cook for a further 2 mins.

  2. Drain the lentils, then add to the pan with the tomatoes and cook for 5 mins, or until the tomatoes have broken down. Stir in the peas, cook for 1 min to defrost, then remove from the heat and leave to cool.

  3. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. To make the dipping sauces, grate the remaining tomatoes on a box grater into a bowl, discarding any skin. Add 1 tsp each of red wine vinegar and extra virgin olive oil, then season with sea salt and black pepper, and pop into a serving bowl. Pour half the yogurt into a blender, pick in the mint leaves (saving a couple to serve) and blitz until smooth, then season to taste. Transfer to a serving bowl, then finish by rippling through the remaining yogurt, drizzling over some extra virgin olive oil and the reserved mint leaves.

  4. To assemble the parcels, lace 4 sheets of filo on a clean work surface, brush each with 1 tsp olive oil per sheet, then top with a second sheet of filo. Divide the filling between them and roll up each one, tucking in the ends as you go, to make 4 parcels. Place on an oiled baking sheet, brushing the top with a little more oil, and bake for 25 mins, or until golden and crisp. Serve with the dipping sauces, some extra mint leaves and a crunchy green salad, if you like.
