Beef Filo Parcels

Add the minced beef, in batches and cook until brown.  Add the potatoes and green peas and cook for 5-6 minutes.  Set aside to cool.
Remove the filo pastry from the packaging and cover with a slightly damp cloth to prevent the pastry from drying out.
Lay 2-3 filo pastry sheets on top of each other, brushing each sheet with a little melted butter.  Cut into 10cm (4inch) squares.
Lightly brush a little of the mango chutney over the filo square and top with a spoonful of the filling.  Gather up the edges, pinching them together to form a parcel.
Place onto a baking sheet and repeat the process with the remaining filo and meat filling.
Lightly brush the top of each parcel with melted butter and bake for 10-12 minutes until golden.
Eat Serve hot or cold with a mixed green leaf and radish salad.Tip:Make the filling the day before and store in the refrigerator until required.
