Ingredients

Method

1.Place shallot, garlic, lamb, paste, breadcrumbs, pistachios, coriander, spice blend, 1 teaspoon of the fennel seeds and 2 eggs in a large bowl, season, mix well to combine. Cover, refrigerate for 3 hours to allow flavours to develop.
2.Preheat oven to 200°C. Line oven trays with baking paper.
3.Beat remaining egg lightly. Fill a large piping bag with lamb mixture. Cut pastry in half, pipe lamb mixture, down one long edge of the pastry. Brush the opposite long edge with beaten egg, roll tightly to enclose. Repeat with remaining pastry, lamb mixture and egg.
4.Score pastry at 1/2 cm intervals. Brush rolls with beaten egg, cut each roll into four pieces, sprinkle with remaining fennel seeds and the salt.
5.Place rolls, seam-side down, on oven trays, bake 25 minutes or until golden and cooked through. Serve immediately.

Sausage rolls can be made and frozen in advance. Allow an extra 10 minutes when baking from frozen. Middle-Eastern spice blend is available from supermarkets. Substitute with 1 tablespoon each ground cumin and coriander mixed with 1/2 teaspoon each ground turmeric and cardamom.
