  7. Add the carrots, peas, salt, spices and lemon juice.
  8. Cook for a further 15 minutes on medium heat. Turn the oven to 350°F.
  9. Roll out on a floured surface to a narrow strip.
  10. Fold in three, give a quarter turn so one of the open ends is towards you and roll out again. Repeat three times.

  12. Place filling into the center and moisten the edges, bring them together and seal in the center. Make a couple of vents to allow steam to escape.
  13. Cover the pastry with milk or egg wash and bake for 50-60 minutes.
