  10. Distribute the curried fish evenly between the rounds, brush the edges with the beaten egg and crimp to seal.
  11. Brush the puffs with the remaining beaten egg.
  12. Bake for 25 minutes so the pastry is risen and brown.

Chef's tip

If the pastry browns before it has properly risen, lay a piece of tin-foil loosely over the puffs.
