Indian Chicken Pies Recipes

2 tb Butter
2 oz Button mushrooms, chopped
1 Onion, chopped
2 ts Garam Masala
3 1/4 c All-purpose flour
2/3 c Chicken stock
8 oz Cooked chicken, diced
1/3 c Frozen corn, thawed
Salt to taste
Fresh ground pepper to taste
1/4 ts Salt
1/3 c Cold margarine, diced
1/3 c Lard, diced
1/4 c Cold water
1 Egg, beaten
Tomato slices, halved (opt)
Fresh parsley sprigs (opt)

Melt butter in a saucepan. Add mushrooms, onion and Garam Masala and cook 2 minutes. Stir in 1/4 cup of flour and cook 1 minute, then stir in stock and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat and cook 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in chicken, corn, salt and pepper; cool.

Sift remaining flour into a bowl. Add 1/4 teaspoon salt and cut in margarine and lard finely until mixture resembles bread crumbs. Add cold water and mix to form a fairly firm dough. Knead gently until smooth. Preheat oven to 375'F. (175'C.). Preheat a baking sheet. Cut off 2/3 of pastry and cut in 4 equal pieces. Roll each piece to a 7" circle. Line 4 (5") fluted pie pans with removable bottoms with pastry circles, allowing pastry to overlap top edges slightly. Press pastry well into flutes but do not trim top edge. Cut remaining 1/3 of pastry in 4 equal pieces and roll each piece to a 6" circle.

Spoon cold chicken mixture into pastry-lined flan pans and smooth surfaces. Dampen edges of pastry in pans and cover with pastry circles. Seal edges well and trim by pressing pastry edges firmly flat blade of a knife. Make a small hole in center of each pie. Reroll pastry trimmings and cut out leaves to decorate pies. Brush surfaces of pies with egg, then decorate with leaves and brush leaves with egg. Place flan pans on preheat baking sheet and bake in preheated oven 40-45 minutes or until pastry is golden brown and filling is heated through. Cool before carefully removing from pans. Garnish with tomato slices and parsley sprigs, if desired, and serve cold.

I made something similar to this the other day. I have OOS in my hands and can't make pastry anymore, so i wrapped the mixture in rice paper and made little rolls, then fried them in shallow hot oil.Served with plain rice and sweet chili sauce to dunk them into. my very fussy boys scoffed them down in no time. Perhaps Leee's young fellas might like them too?

Many thanx, Sis, can you explain exactly what you did? Anything I can make with the farm poultry here I would love to do - My kids have finally decided that my fried chicken is better than KFC, but still, I need more variety.

Many thanx,
