Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F/gas mark 4. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.

Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan on a medium heat. Add the onion and cook for 3 minutes.

Stir in the carrots, peas, mushrooms, mustard seeds, garam masala and salt. Cook for 2 minutes before adding your mashed potatoes. Reduce the temperature.

Roll out the filo sheets onto a flat surface. Cut length ways and coat with the oil.

Spoon 1 tbsp of the potato mix into the centre, fold over to form a triangle. Repeat until all the filling is used up.
