The instruction how to make Chicken and vegetable filo spiral pies

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/180C fan forced. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Heat olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Cook onion and garlic for 5 minutes or until softened. Stir in Moroccan spice mix. Cook for 1 minute or until aromatic. Add vegetables, rice and chicken. Cook for 5 minutes to warm through. Season. Fold in ricotta, lemon rind and herbs.
  3. Place a sheet of filo on a clean work surface. Brush with melted butter. Top with another sheet of filo. Place a quarter of the filling along the longest edge of the pastry to form a 2cm-thick sausage. Fold the pastry over the filling and continue to roll up. Working quickly, form into a coil. Brush with melted butter. Place on the prepared baking tray. Repeat with remaining pastry, butter and filling to make 4 filo spirals. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  4. Bake the filo spiral pies for 25 minutes or until golden and flaky. Serve with a green salad.
