Makes 4 pasties Approx 40p each
Prep time 15 minutes Cooking time 30 minutes
2 medium potatoes, peeled & cubed
½ onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, crushed
100g frozen peas
2 tbsp tomato puree
1 tbsp curry powder
salt & pepper
2-3 tbsp cold water
Cook the potato in boiling salted water until just tender. Drain & set aside.
Heat some oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat, cook the onion for about 3 minutes before adding the garlic.
Once the onion is soft stir in the tomato puree & cook for 2 minutes.
Sprinkle over the curry powder & stir well then add the water & the potatoes.
Stir well again to make sure everything gets coated then add the peas.
Cook for another 2 minutes then set aside to cool.
Pre-heat the oven to 180Fan/Gas 6/200C.
Roll out the pastry to approximately the thickness of a 20p coin.
Cut out rounds using either a cutter or a small side plate. Roll each one out a little to an oval shape.
Place some of the potato filling on one half of the pastry. Brush the edge of that half with egg wash then bring the other half up & over. Crimp the edge with your fingers or use a fork.
Prick each pasty with a fork then brush all over with egg wash.
Place the pasties on a greased, lined baking tray & bake for 20 minutes.
Once cooked allow them to cool on the tray for 5 minutes then serve.
