Ingredients :

  1. Boneless chicken thighs ( cubed)
  2. Sheet of store bought puff pastry
  3. Handful of coriander
  4. 5 cloves of garlic
  5. 2 Tbsp ginger paste
  6. 1/2 a lemons juice
  7. 1 can tomato puree
  8. 1 large white onion (diced)
  9. Spices
    . 3 tsp curry powder
    . 3 tsp coriander flakes
    . 1 tsp garam masala
    . 1 tsp turmeric
    . salt and pepper
    . 1 tsp cumin seeds
  10. 3 Tbsp olive oil
  11. 1 cup greek yoghurt

 

Method:

  1. In a medium sized pan heat the oil, once you know the oil is hot, add the onions, ginger, garlic and saute for 2 mins
  2. Add the tin of tomato puree
  3. Now add the chicken, coriander and spices
  4. Cook chicken for 10-12 mins
  5. Add the Greek yogurt and lemon juice and simmer for an extra 2-3 minutes.
  6. Roll out your pastry and cut out 6 circles with either a round cookie cutter or lid. ( the circle should be big enough to fit in a muffin tin.
  7. Now re-roll the left over pastry and cut 6 smaller circles for the tops of the pies. (you can substitute with mashed potatoes if you want.)
  8. Lightly spray your muffin tin with cooking oil and line them with the pastry and using a fork, poke two lines of holes at the bottom.
  9. fill with the butterchicken mixture and cover with the pastry covers.
  10. Brush the pies with a egg wash and bake for 15 minutes at 200 degrees.

+ Tip: Leave pies in for longer if you don’t see them browning nicely or have opted for a bigger size.

 

Hope you enjoyed them as much as my family did πŸ™‚
