Parallelly, in another pan, boil 2 cups of water and add the green lentils to it. Allow it to boil for 20 minutes. Now cook rice in a pan for 5-7 mins. Post this, drain out the water from the rice and the lentils and allow them to dry.
With This, Your Preparation Is Done.
Take some water in a kettle and cook garlic and onions for 2-3 mins. Now grind all the whole spices with pestle and mortar and add them to the ginger and onion mixture. Now add nutmeg powder and turmeric to the onions and spices and mix them well.
By now, your spinach has boiled; now, rinse the spinach with cold water and drain out the water and let it dry. Now chop the spinach and add the onion with spices mixture. Now, pour the entire mixture into the rice and add lemon juice, lentils. Stir the feta only once the mixture is cool.
Now, let’s begin with making the pie. Take four to five sheets of vegan filo and spread a generous amount of butter on each sheet. Lay them one on top of the other. Now take another four sheets and better them well. Repeat this step with the three final sheets of filo.
Lay the rice filling in the center of the filo. Leave the edges free. Brush olive oil around the edges and tightly tuck the edges. Next, roll the filo over the filling. Keep rolling the first bunch of filo, under they look like a long cutlet. Now coil the sausage back on itself. Your pie preparation is now almost over. Place the coil on the baking tray. Now let the coil cool for one day.
