1 1/2 tablespoon oil
1 small white onion, finely chopped
1/4 pound lean ground beef
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoon ground coriander
2 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin seed
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
1 large tart apple, pared, cored, chopped
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon salt
1 package frozen puff pastry

1 egg, lightly beatenwith water

Prepare the filling:
In a medium skillet, melt the margarine and sauté the onion, beef, garlic, coriander, chili powder, ginger, cumin seed and turmeric until onion is tender and beef is browned, 6 to 8 minutes. Stir mixture to crumble beef. Blend in apple, water and salt; reduce heat and simmer, covered until apple is very soft, about 20 minutes. Stir to mash apple, cool.

Prepare the patties:
Thaw puff pastry. Working with one piece at a time, roll out and trim each sheet into 8-inch circles. Place 2 to 3 tablespoons of filling on half of each. Moisten the edges of the dough with water and fold the dough circle over the meat filling. Pinch the edges closed with a fork. Lightly brush the pastry with a mixture of the egg and water. **

Bake on a lightly greased baking sheet for 30 to 40 minutes or until the pastry are golden brown.

** Can be frozen for one month at this point. Place on plastic-wrap lined baking sheet in single layers.
