To Prep 0:25
To Cook 0:30


1/3 cup (55g) pistachio kernels
500g lamb or beef mince
1 onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup chopped coriander
2 tsp sweet paprika
1 tsp cinnamon, extra for dusting
1 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp hot paprika
Salt & freshly ground pepper
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 eggs
15 sheets filo pastry
80g butter, melted
Extra vegetable oil for frying Method

Step 1
Blanch pistachio kernels in a saucepan of boiling water. Drain then using a clean tea towel, rub to remove skins. Roughly chop. In a bowl combine mince, onion, pistachios, coriander, spices and season well with salt and pepper. Mix well.

Step 2
Heat oil in a large frying pan over high heat, add mince mixture. Cook for 4 minutes, stirring occasionally until meat is brown. Add one egg at a time, stir, cook for 1-2 minutes or until egg scrambles through the mixture. Remove from heat and place in a bowl. Allow to cool slightly.

Step 3
Lay one sheet of pastry short edge facing towards you. Cut in half lengthways, so you have 2 long strips. Brush each with melted butter. Place 1 tbs of mince mixture along short edge facing you. Carefully roll pastry, tucking in sides to form a tight cigar shape. Towards the end of rolling, brush edge of pastry with butter and seal. Place seam side down on a tray. Continue with remaining pastry. Work quickly so pastry does not dry out.

Step 4
Fill a deep saucepan one-third full with vegetable oil. Using a thermometer heat oil to 190°C. Cook briouats, 4 at a time, for 3 minutes, turning regularly until crisp and golden brown. Drain on paper towel. Dust with cinnamon and serve warm with mint tea.

happy cooking.
