Step by Step Instructions
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.
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.
Add soy sauce/salt.
Roll out the dough, place the filling in the centre, and fold the dough pinching the edges to seal the pie.
Bake in a preheated oven at 200ºC/390ºF for 15-20 mins.
