45 millilitres (3 tablespoons) olive oil
2 carrots, peeled and finely julienned
1 onion, finely chopped
115 grams (1/4 lb) button mushrooms, coarsely chopped
1 millilitre (1/4 teaspoon) ground cumin
1 millilitre (1/4 teaspoon) ground coriander
1 millilitre (1/4 teaspoon) ground allspice
500 millilitres (2 cups) chopped cabbage
45 millilitres (3 tablespoons) lemon juice
60 millilitres (1/4 cup) chopped flat-leaf parsley
1 egg, separated
45 millilitres (3 tablespoons) water or milk
2 pieces (200 g / 1/2 lb each) puff pastry dough

For the Yogurt Sauce

250 millilitres (1 cup) plain yogurt , 10% fat
45 millilitres (3 tablespoons) lemon juice
1 millilitre (1/4 teaspoon) ground cumin
1 millilitre (1/4 teaspoon) ground coriander
Salt and pepper

Directions

For the Pastries

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown the lamb in half the oil. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
In the same skillet over medium heat, soften the vegetables and spices in the remaining oil. Season with salt and pepper. Add the cabbage, lemon juice, parsley and reserved meat. Adjust the seasoning. Transfer to a bowl, cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or chill in the freezer for about 45 minutes.
With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Make the egg wash: In a bowl, lightly beat the egg yolk with the water or milk. Set aside.
On a floured surface, roll each piece of dough into a 20 x 30-cm (8 x 12-inch) rectangle. Cut each piece into 6 squares, 10 cm (4 inches) per side.
For each puff, lightly brush half a dough square with egg white. Spoon 45 ml (3 tablespoons) of filling onto the centre. Fold up 2 opposite sides of the pastry, forming a purse. Pinch the ends firmly to seal but leave an opening in the middle. Spoon 15 ml (1 tablespoon) filling into the opening to finish filling the purse. Arrange the pastries on the baking sheet and brush with egg wash.
Bake until golden, 25 to 30 minutes.

For the Yogurt Sauce

In a bowl, combine all the ingredients. Season with salt and pepper.
Serve with the hot pastries.
Note: For a vegetarian version of this recipe, omit the lamb.
