Pastilla, pronounced ‘bast-eeya’, is a Moroccan dish which is very much like a pie with an interesting filling of sweetly spiced meat, almond, eggs and herbs encased in crispy filo pastry and dusted with icing sugar. Sounds weird? Actually it is rather good and would make an ideal Boxing Day meal using leftover Christmas turkey.

The combination of fragrant spices including cinnamon and sugar is surprisingly agreeable and don’t be put off by the scrambled egg either as it turns out less eggy than you’d expect. The texture is soft and moist and carries the flavours really well.
