Chicken tikka pie Easy Food
Serves 4
400g chicken fillets, chopped
4 tbsp tikka masala paste
2 tbsp yoghurt, (optional)
2 tbsp coconut oil
1 onion, sliced
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 x 5cm piece of fresh ginger, peeled and grated
200ml water
½ x 400g tin of chopped tomatoes
100ml double cream
½ tsp sugar
30g fresh coriander, chopped
1 x 320g sheet ready-rolled shortcrust pastry
1 egg, beaten

To serve:
Naan breads, or poppadoms
Fresh coriander, chopped
  1. Preheat the oven to 200 °C/180 °C fan/ gas mark 6.
  2. Place the chicken in a bowl and add two tablespoons of the tikka masala paste and the yoghurt, if using.
  3. Heat the oil in a saucepan over a medium heat. Cook the onion for 5-6 minutes until soft. Add the garlic and ginger and cook for one minute longer.
  4. Add the remaining tikka masala paste and 100ml of water. Cook for 4-5 minutes until your sauce is reduced and thickened.
  5. Add the chicken and cook for 5-6 minutes. Add 100ml of water and the tinned tomatoes. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes, uncovered.
  6. Stir in the double cream and a pinch of sugar. Simmer for five minutes longer.
  7. Transfer to a medium-sized ovenproof dish. Wet the rim of the pie dish with water and lay the pastry over the top. Trim the edges and crimp the sides, then make a small steam hole. Brush the pastry with beaten egg.
  8. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until golden and crisp, and the filling is piping hot.
  9. Sprinkle with fresh chopped coriander and serve with plain naans or poppadoms.

Note: Vegetable oil can be used as an alternative to coconut oil, if you wish.
