  2. Place the first 6 ingredients into a bowl and mix together thoroughly with your hands.
  3. Place the pastry sheet onto baking paper on a baking sheet.
  4. Place sausage meat in the centre and form a brick shape leaving a 3cm gap at either end.
  5. Spread the Thai sweet chilli sauce over the sausage meat.
  6. Cut strips measuring 1.5cm at an angle along both sides and trim the two ends to form flaps.
  7. Fold one end flap over the sausage meat and then fold over the strips in alternate layers to form a plait, moistening the tips with water to secure.
