Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C/gas mark 5. Dry-fry the cumin and coriander seeds in a small pan over a medium heat.
  2. Grind the seeds using a pestle and mortar and add the remaining spices, a pinch of salt and half the olive oil.

  4. Meanwhile, heat the remaining oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat, add the shallots/onion and cook until they start to caramelise, about 6 minutes.

  6. Add the chickpeas, drained raisins, squash and coarsely mash. Add the lemon juice and coriander and season to taste.
  7. Lay a sheet of filo on a clean work surface, brush with melted butter and top with another layer.
  8. Spoon a quarter of the pumpkin filling along the longest side, leaving a 2cm gap at each end; fold in the sides, then loosely roll up and twist into a coil.
  9. Place on an oven tray lined with parchment and repeat with the remaining pastry and filling.
  10. Brush the tops with beaten egg, and bake until golden, about 15-20 minutes.
  11. For the yoghurt dressing, mix all of the ingredients together and put into the fridge.
  12. Drizzle the snail pies with honey and serve hot or at room temperature, sprinkled with pomegranate seeds and shredded mint.
