  • Heat the oil in a small non-stick pan and fry the mustard seeds for about ten seconds, or until they begin to splutter.
  • Add the onion and ginger and cook for 2-3 minutes over a high heat.
  • Add the peas, stir well and add the spices, mango powder, salt and a splash of water.
  • Cook for 1-2 minutes, then add the potatoes and coriander and cook for 2-3 minutes.
  • Taste and adjust the seasoning.
  • Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6.
  • Unroll the pastry and cover with cling film and a damp tea towel.
  • Peel off one piece and keep the rest covered so that it doesn't dry out. Lay the pastry sheet flat on a clean surface and brush with melted butter.
  • Fold in one third of the pastry lengthways towards the middle.
  • Brush again with the butter and fold in the other side to make a long triple-layered strip.
  • Place one rounded teaspoon of the filling mixture at one end of the strip, leaving a 2cm/1in border.
  • Take the right corner and fold diagonally to the left, enclosing the filling and forming a triangle.
  • Fold again along the upper crease of the triangle.
  • Keep folding in this way until you reach the end of the strip.
  • Brush the outer surface with more butter.
  • Place onto a baking sheet and cover while you make the rest of the samosas.
  • Sprinkle over a few sesame seeds, if using.
  • Bake in the centre of the oven for 30-35 minutes, or until golden and crisp, turning halfway through the cooking time.
  • To serve, place the samosas onto a large serving plate with a bowlful of chutney.
