Step 1

Mix the dough ingredients and leave to rise covered in a warm place for 90 mins.

In the meantime, rinse the soaked lentils, place them in a pan, add some boiling water just enough to cover the lot, and cook for 10 mins, stirring occasionally.

Step 3

Add the rest of the ingredients for the filling, except soy sauce/salt, stir well and cook for further 8-10 mins until the lentils are soft and the water has evaporated.
