A traditional meat pie with puff pastry and a drizzle of pomegranate molasses.

Ingredients

  • 1 Pack puff pastry, large squares
  • 400g Boneless lamb leg, roughly ground
  • 1 Small onion, roughly chopped
  • 3 Tbsp labneh (strained yogurt)
  • 1 Large tomato, diced
  • 2 Tbsp pine nuts
  • 1 Tsp salt
  • ½ Tsp black pepper
  • ½ Tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3 Tbsp Al Wadi Al Akhdar pomegranate molasses

Step 1

Preheat oven to 180C/350F.

Step 2

In a bowl combine meat, onion, labneh, tomato, pine nuts, pomegranate molasses and spices.

Step 3

Flour your surface and align the puff pastry. Spoon 2 tablespoon of meat mixture into the center of each square. Pinch together four corners of the dough to make square shape pies, leaving the top open.

Step 4

Transfer the pies to a lightly greased baking sheet and bake 20-25 minutes until the meat is cooked through and the pastry golden brown.

Step 5

Serve with yogurt (or ayran, a cold yogurt beverage mixed with salt) and drizzle more pomegranate molasses on top if desired.
