The curry filling for these pot pies was wonderful. Full of flavor and really good overall. I did have some trouble with my puff pastry though. I didn't have single serve oven proof bowls so I baked this in a regular pie plate. I took the dish out of the oven when the top was golden brown and well the underside of the puff pastry was doughy and soggy..so we aren't sure if it didn't cook thru because I didn't poke holes in the top(not sure if I was supposed to or not) or if the moisture from the curry made the puff pastry soggy (also b/c I didn't poke holes).... Overall this was a very good dish, and I am going to try to solve my doughy/soggy puff pastry prob, but in the mean time we will continue to make the curry filling by itself.
