  6. Preheat the Oven to 180’C.

  7. Pastry: Sift the flour, salt, paprika and curry powder together. Rub the butter into the flour with your fingertips until it resembles crumbs. Add just enough milk to form a stiff dough.

  8. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface until approx. 8mm thick and into a rectangle.

  9. Spread the filling over the rolled out dough. Roll the dough up (lengthways) like a swiss roll or pinwheel and cut into 1cm slices.

  11. Bake for 30 Minutes or until pastry slices are cooked through and golden brown.
