Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Heat oil in a large pan, then cook the onion, garlic and chilli for 2-3 mins until tender. Stir in the garam masala, turmeric and cumin, then cook for a further 2-3 mins.
  2. Add carrots, parsnip, cauliflower and courgette to the pan with 300ml/1/2pt water, bring to the boil, then simmer for 5 mins until the vegetables are almost tender. Drain, reserving the cooking liquid, then mix with the peas.
  3. Melt butter in a small pan, stir in flour, then cook for 1 min. Add reserved vegetable cooking liquid, then cook, stirring, until it forms a thick sauce. Simmer for 3 mins, stirring, then remove from heat and stir in the yogurt, coriander, vegetables and seasoning. Leave to cool.
  4. Spoon the mixture into a 900ml pie dish. Brush the rim of the dish with water. Roll out pastry and use to cover the pie, pressing firmly on to the rim. Trim edges and press firmly to seal. Make a hole in the centre of the pie to allow steam to escape. Brush with the milk, place on a baking sheet and bake for 25-30 mins.

I made a curried vegetable pie last year and I thought this was the recipe, WRONG, that pie was delicious, this one half has gone in the recycler. The only good thing about it was the pastry and I cheated and bought ready rolled. If you like your veg aldente then fine but with these cooking times the dicing has to be very small. The cubes need to be no more than quarter inch sides. It says season to taste well I think it needs to say season well at least a teaspoon of salt. This will not be made again and it will be remove from my binder.

This made a nice tea. We left out the courgette and instead added a potato which fitted with the rest of the vegetables better and also stopped it from going watery. It was even better heated up the day after for lunch. This isn't very spicy, both the boyfriend and myself agreed we would have liked it to have a bit more spice but you could serve it as is to small children and fussy adults without anyone turning their nose up. We're planning to play around with it a little more and refine the recipe till it suits our tastes a lot more but it's still a great base recipe.

This was really nice, I made my own pastry and left the yogurt out of the sauce as I didn't think it was really needed, a nice comforting winter recipe.

Very enjoyable to make, and a tasty change for a meal. We ended up eating the pastry as a bread alongside the filling, making it more like a curry recipe than a pie recipe for us!

I am blessed with a wonderful family that indulge my cooking whims daily and eat anything that is put in front of them... but they didn't like this and none of them ate more than half of it. I on the other hand thought it perfectly...ok

I made this for a vegetarian dinner party and it was delicious. Served with home made cous cous. It was nice to add cherry tomatoes into the cous cous along with green beans to add colour.
