Mante are traditional Armenian pasta parcels filled with spiced meat and usually served with a yoghurt sauce.

You'll need

  Yoghurt sauce 750 ml (3 cups) natural yoghurt 1 egg yolk 1 tbsp cornflour 1 tbsp cooked short grain rice ½ tsp dried mint to serve extra-virgin olive oil to serve Lebanese bread   Mante 100 gm minced chicken 20 gm coarsely chopped pistachios ½ small onion, finely chopped ½ tsp ground allspice ½ tsp ground cinnamon ¼ tsp ground nutmeg 18 8cm-diameter round wonton wrappers (see note)

Method

  • 01
  • For mante, combine all ingredients except wonton wrappers in a bowl and season to taste with sea salt. Place a heaped teaspoon of filling in the centre of each wonton wrapper, brush edges with water, fold wrapper in half and join ends together, pressing to seal.
