  • 100g of basmati rice
  • 1 tbsp of sunflower oil
  • 200ml of water
  • 15g of butter
  • 3 leeks, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and crushed

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/gas mark 6
  2. Put a saucepan over a medium heat. Heat the oil, then gently fry the basmati rice until translucent before adding the water
  3. Bring the rice to the boil, lower the heat and leave to gently simmer for 10 minutes. Cover the saucepan, take off the heat and leave to stand for 15 minutes
  4. Melt the butter in another pan. Add the garlic and leeks and cook over a medium heat until soft but not coloured
  5. Stir in the mushrooms. When the mushrooms begin to release their liquid, put the cod on top of the mushrooms and leeks. Cover the pan, lower the heat and steam for 10 minutes
  6. Carefully take the cod out of the pan and set aside
  7. Remove the pan from the heat. Stir the rice into the leeks and mushrooms before adding the sour cream and chopped dill
  8. Flake the cod into the mixture and stir gently to combine
  9. After rolling out the pastry as thin as possible, cut into 12 equally-sized fish shapes. Set aside on a baking tray lined with parchment paper
  10. Spoon some of the mixture onto the 6 fish-shaped pastry bases, taking care to leave a 1 inch gap at the edges. Cover each open pie with another fish-shaped layer of pastry
  11. After crimping the edges and egg washing the pastry, bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes until golden brown. Serve immediately
