Chicken Curry Pie With Sweet Potato

Recipe by JustJanS

Taste's recipe of the day. I made this the other night-it was great. The two teaspoons oil, ginger, garlic and salt and pepper were my additions to the original recipe ( I just can't make a curry without ginger and garlic) I made this in a 4 cup ovenproof dish rather than the one cup ones.

Wow, Jan, this is fabulous, you'd think it would be a lot of work, but it's not at all. Delicious curry, mild enough to please most people, it perfectly complements the sweet potato topping. Such an attractive way to serve, I chose not to do a side of vegetables but did think how lovely this would be for guests (or just ourselves!), served with sambals and some naan bread ... This made 4 perfect ramekin dish servings, we enjoyed two, and my husband has the other two to loook forward to for an easy and very nice lunch! I will definitely be doing this again, loved this recipe!!! Thank you Jan, this was made for I Recommend tag game, on the recommendation of I'm Pat
