How To Make a Curry Pie

How To Make a Curry Pie

I’ve always wanted to know how to make a curry pie. I never made one before and have been curious. My friend has recently had baby number 3 (that’s right folks, THREE babies!!) and so I wanted to bring her over lunch. She also asked to make her some super healthy food that she could freeze for later (she also has IBD issues!) and so I was on the search for healthy freezable meals. I made her some hearty soup, dal (indian lentils), both of which is easily freezable, and then decided to experiment with a curry pot pie. It was a success! Plus, it freezes so well. 🙂 Check out my recipe below for how to make a curry pie.

Ingredients
  1. 1 can mung beans (or 1 cup dried, soaked overnight and cooked)
  2. 1 cup chopped veggies (carrots, celery, peas, etc.)
  3. 1 handful of chopped kale (or other greens), optional
  4. 1 tomato, chopped
  5. 2 tbsp olive oil
  6. 1 onion, chopped
  7. 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
  8. 1 tsp ginger, grated
  9. 1 tsp cumin
  10. 1 tsp ground coriander
  11. 1 tsp garam masala
  12. 1/2 tsp turmeric
  13. 1/2-1 tsp chilli powder
  14. 81 fresh chilli, optional
  15. freshly squeezed lemon juice, to taste
  16. salt, taste
Instructions
  1. Heat olive oil in a pot over medium heat.
  2. When hot, add the chopped onion and sauté the onions until translucent.
  3. Add the garlic and ginger and cook until fragrant.
  4. Add the spices and cook for 2 minutes (add more oil if spices are sticking to the pot).
  5. Add all the veggies and cook for another 2 minutes (remember we are going to be baking them again so we don't want them overcooked).
  6. Add the mung beans, lemon juice, salt and mix.
  7. Adjust spices to taste.
  8. Pour the mixture into an oven safe dish and cover with a pie crust.
Notes
  1. *If you want the taste of the chilli but not the spice of the chilli, you can simply add a whole chilli when you add the spices. For a little spice you can hit the chilli in half, or for even more spiciness you can chop up the chilli.
