Curried Shrimp Phyllo Bundles
or 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
phyllo (filo) pastry sheets
16 x 12 inches, frozen, thawed
or butter, melted
Filling: In a small mixing bowl stir together yogurt, cocnut, peanuts, chutney, curry powder, and gingerroot or ginger.
Gently stir in shrimp.
Unfold phyllo dough.
Place one sheet of phyllo dough on a waxed-paper-lined cutting board.
Cover remaining sheets with a damp paper towel or cloth.
Keep covered to prevent drying.
Generously brush with some of the margarine or butter.
Top with another sheet of phyllo, then brush with more of the margarine or butter.
Repeat with a third sheet of phyllo and margarine or butter.
Using a sharp knife, cut the stack of buttered phyllo sheets into twelve 4-inch squares.
Place about 2 teaspoons of the filling in the center of each square.
For each bundle, bring the 4 corners together; 1 pinch and twist slightly.
Repeat with the remaining phyllo dough, margarine or butter, and filling to make 24 bundles total.
Arrange bundles on an ungreased parchment- or foil-lined baking sheet.
Bake, uncovered, in a 375 degree F oven for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden.
To freeze: Prepare phyllo bundles as directed, except do not bake.
Freeze the unbaked bundles on a baking sheet.
Transfer to a storage container; seal, label, and place in the freezer.
To serve, place frozen bundles on a parchment- or foil-lined Bake, uncovered, in a 375 degree F oven for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden.
