PREP TIME: 25 min
INGREDIENTS
  1/2  cup  plain yogurt
  1/2  cup  mango chutney
  1  pound  ground chuck
  1/2  cup  chopped onion
  1/3  cup  dried cranberries- diced
  1/2  teaspoon  salt
  1/2  teaspoon  ground cumin
  1/4  teaspoon  ground nutmeg
  1/4  teaspoon  ground cinnamon
  1/8  teaspoon  ground red pepper
  1/8  teaspoon  black pepper
  1/2  cup  water
  1  Tablespoon  cornstarch
  15  sheets frozen phyllo dough, thawed
  Vegetable cooking spray
  

DIRECTIONS
Combine yogurt and mango chutney in a bowl; stir well, and set chutney sauce aside.
Cook meat and onion in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until browned, stirring to crumble. Drain meat mixture.  Add cranberries and next 6 ingredients (cranberries through black pepper); stir well. Combine water and cornstarch; stir well, and add to the meat mixture. Cook over medium heat 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; set aside. 
Working with 1 phyllo sheet at a time, cut each sheet lengthwise in half.  Cut each half into 4” squares; lightly coat squares with cooking spray (cover remaining phyllo dough with slightly damp towel to keep from drying out). Stack 2 squares and spoon about 1 tablespoon meat mixture into center. Gather corners of “purse” together and squeeze to close.
Place purses on a baking sheet and lightly coat with cooking spray.  Bake at 400 degrees for 12 minutes or until golden.  Serve with chutney sauce.
