  1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Cook sweet potato in a saucepan of boiling water for 8 minutes. Add onion and cook for a further 2 minutes or until tender. Drain.

  2. Place the sweet-potato mixture, cream, parsley and half the milk in the bowl of a food processor and process until smooth. Return to pan and stir in the remaining milk. Taste and season with salt and pepper. Place over medium heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes or until heated through.

  3. Meanwhile, cut pastry crossways into eight 3cm-thick strips. Place poppy seeds on a plate. Twist pastry strips and roll in the poppy seeds. Place on tray and bake in oven for 10-12 minutes.
