Few people can resist a good sausage roll. Crispy, golden and flaky pastry encases tender, juicy meat – in this recipe, we’ve gone one step further and blended it with the perfect amount of fragrant Thai massaman curry paste. Rustle up a batch and get the party started.
½ cup panko breadcrumbs
1/3 cup coconut milk
400g (14 oz) chicken mince (you could also use beef mince)
6 makrut lime leaves, destemmed and finely sliced
2 tbsp fish sauce
2 sheets puff pastry
4 egg yolks, lightly whisked
black sesame seeds
Sweet chilli relish:
1/3 cup sweet chilli sauce
1 tbsp diced cucumber
1 tbsp finely diced red Asian shallots (or red onion)
Preheat oven to 200°C/390°F. Combine the panko breadcrumbs and coconut milk in a small bowl. Set aside for 2-3 minutes to soften. Then mix the breadcrumbs with the chicken, curry paste, makrut lime leaves and fish sauce.
Take one sheet of puff pasty and cut in half. Shape a quarter of the chicken mix into a sausage shape down the centre of one strip of pastry. Brush one side of the pastry with egg yolk. Then roll the pastry over the filling to cover. Slice into 3 small sausage rolls. Transfer to a baking tray lined with baking paper. Repeat with the remaining pastry and filling.
Brush the tops of the sausage rolls with egg yolk. Refrigerate for 5 minutes to allow the egg wash to set. Then brush again with another layer of egg yolk. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
Bake for 25 minutes or until golden and cooked through.
In the meantime, make the sweet chilli relish by mixing the ingredients in a bowl.
Serve the sausage rolls warm or at room temperature with the sweet chilli relish on the side.
