  • 1 cup of Quorn Vegetarian Steak Strips
  • 2 rolls of puff pastry sheets (320g each)
  • 2 large potatoes
  • ½ red onion
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 2 large tomatoes
  • 5/6 curry leaves
  • ½ tsp cumin seeds
  • ½ tsp mustard seeds
  • 2 green chillies
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • 2/3 tbsp milk
  • Coriander
  • Juice of lime


  1. Heat some oil in a pan and add your mustard and cumin seeds. Wait until they start popping and then add curry leaves, onions, garlic and chillies. You can add some salt at this point to help the onions cook down.
  2. Sauté until they are golden and then add the tomatoes. Cook them down until they are nice and mushy.
  3. At this point you can add your spices - curry powder, turmeric and pepper.
  4. Mix well and then add a few tablespoons of milk, depending on how mild/spicy you like the curry.
  5. Sprinkle over lots of coriander and a squeeze of lime.
  6. Pop your Vegetarian Steak Strips into the air fryer or pan fry for a few minutes until they are cooked then add it to the curry. Before adding to the curry just make sure the potatoes are mashed so your puffs will fold easier.
  7. Roll out your pastry and lay the curry down and spread it evenly. Start rolling the pastry to make a ‘tube’ shape. Pop it into the fridge for half an hour before you slice them into spirals so that the shape holds better.
  8. Bake in the oven until they are golden and enjoy!
