  2. 4 large sheets of filo pastry
  3. Pinch ground cinnamon

  6. 75g sultanas

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to gas mark 4 / 180°C
  2. Mix together the chopped lamb, spring onions, sultanas and spring onions. Stir in the cinnamon and paprika.Season with black pepper. (No need to add salt as the feta is quite salty).
  3. Crumble in the feta cheese and gently fold in with the chopped herbs.
  4. Mix the butter and olive oil in a small dish.Take 1 sheet of filo and brush lightly with melted butter and olive oil. Place a 1cm-wide strip of lamb mixture along 1 long side of the pastry. Roll pastry to enclose filling, then, working quickly, coil the length of filo into a snail shape. Place on 1 large paper-lined oven tray, then brush with butter and olive oil mix. Repeat with remaining pastry, butter and filling.
  5. Sprinkle spirals with paprika, then bake for 30 minutes or until crisp and golden.
  6. Serve with herbed yogurt and a green salad.
Notes
  1. Tip: A great way to use any leftover lamb. You can also replace the cooked meat with some lamb mince that has been cooked off and cooled.
