Pastry

2. Add the spices and cook for a further 3 minutes until fragrant. Stir in the spinach, potato and kumara.

3. Leave to cool, then stir through the chopped coriander.

4. Place the flour in a bowl and rub through the butter to resemble breadcrumbs. Add the egg yolks and water, then mix to form a dough.
