How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°.

Step 2

Combine onion, ginger, and garlic in a food processor; process until finely chopped. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion mixture; sauté 5 minutes or until lightly browned. Add curry and coriander; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add water, currants, sugar, salt, and chicken; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes. Uncover; cook 20 minutes or until most of liquid evaporates. Remove from heat, and cool slightly. Stir in sour cream. Place the chicken mixture in food processor; pulse until finely chopped.

Step 3

Place 1 phyllo sheet on a large cutting board or work surface (cover remaining dough to prevent drying); lightly coat with cooking spray. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon coconut. Repeat layers 4 times. Cut crosswise into 4 strips. Spoon about 2 tablespoons chicken mixture onto one end of each strip. Fold 1 corner of edge over mixture, forming a triangle; continue folding back and forth into a triangle to end of strip. Repeat procedure with remaining phyllo, cooking spray, chicken mixture, and coconut.

Step 4

Place triangles on a large baking sheet coated with cooking spray; coat with cooking spray. Bake at 400° for 18 minutes or until golden brown.

I made this recipe as written except that I added extra curry as another reviewer suggested. I didn't dislike the finished product, I just thought it was not very flavorful despite all of the curry and not worth the trouble it took to put it together. I won't make this again.

I made these for a party, and they got rave reviews! I wasn't able to find phyllo dough, so I used puff pastry and just wrapped the chicken mixture and coconut together in the puff pastry which I crimped with a fork. I brushed with an egg wash before baking and served with a basic raita (you can find recipes from Cooking Light), and it really added something. These are a lot of work, but given how much praise I got for them, I'd make them again!

This is a great recipe for a party. We prepped the filling and had guests work on wrapping the turnovers. A very tasty appetizer - needs more curry than called for though.
