1/2 cup (60g) frozen peas, thawed 400g can chick­peas, rinsed, drained Juice of 1/2 a lemon 1/4 cup (60ml) ex­tra vir­gin olive oil

Heat oil in a large fry­pan over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stir­ring, for 2 min­utes. Add lamb and cook, turn­ing, for 5 min­utes or un­til browned all over. Add carrot and ras el hanout. Cook, stir­ring, for 5 min­utes, then add tomato, harissa and 300ml wa­ter. Stir to com­bine. Re­duce heat to medium-low and cook for 1 hour or un­til meat is ten­der.

Trans­fer 1/4 cup (60ml) cook­ing liq­uid to a bowl with corn­flour and stir to a paste. Stir into lamb mix­ture. Sim­mer for 5 min­utes or un­til thick. Re­move from heat. Cool slightly.

Pre­heat oven to 200°C. Di­vide lamb mix­ture be­tween 4 x 13cm (1-cup) pie dishes. Lay pas­try on a clean work sur­face. Fold each sheet in half and lightly roll to press to­gether. Cut 2 x 13cm rounds from each pas­try sheet and place over meat. Brush with egg and place on a bak­ing tray. Bake for 25 min­utes or un­til pas­try is crisp and golden.
