Spicy Chicken Korma & Vegetable Pie or Pies

"If you like Indian food, you'll love this. These are really simple to make and taste great. A fantastic way to use up leftover chicken. You can make one large pie with this or I get about 4 or 5 individual ones, just depends on which size pie tray you use. These also freeze well after baking."

  1. Made for Recipe Swap Fall #10 We loved it! I decided to use the puff pastry only on top...I will definitely be making this again.
  2. I never thought of putting Indian food in a pie before, but I'm glad you did. The flavors were definite but not too strong, the puff pastry the perfect crust. I used Recipe #95907 and Recipe #31504 for this. Thanks for posting.


Melbourne I live on a 5 acre property in the Dandenong Ranges Victoria, Australia, having moved from the burbs when I became pregnant with my now 15 year old daughter Alyssa. Once my daughter was born I became a stay at home mum as I couldn't bear the thought of putting her in daycare. She is the light of my life, I never imagined myself as a mum when younger but now wouldn't have it any other way. Alyssa was made a big sister on the 19th April 2010 when our cheeky little boy Blake was born. I love cooking and experimenting with new recipes so quickly become addicted to Zaar as it was previously known & still use it regularly. In addition to being my kids taxi :lol: I also spend my time, reading, gardening and of course shopping. I'm lucky enough that we have the space & so love growing our own fruits, vegies & herbs, this also means we have plenty of room for animals & at the moment have 2 dogs, Max, a Jackshund who's 6, Fletcher, a Kelpie who's 4, 6 cats Snowpea, Fergus, Ginger, Tango, Annie & Cookie, 4 chooks & 2 Ducks. As well as our pets, we also have a lot of native animals around our area, we have kangaroos, wombats, echidna's, possums as well as rosella's, galah's & Cockatoo's hence the name of where I live..
