Curry and lamb are traditional favourites over Easter time – this recipe combines the two in one deliciously flaky pie.
Below, we show you how to make this easy recipe step-by-step!
PREPARATION TIME: 2 hours
COOKING TIME: 1 hour
Preheat the oven to 180°C. Heat some olive oil in a casserole. Add the meat and cook until browned all over, stirring occasionally. Add the onion and garlic and cook until soft.
Place the coriander and cardamom seeds in a mortar and pestle and ground until fine. Add the rest of the spices to the meat and cook for about 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add lemon juice, tomatoes, coconut cream, and season with salt and pepper.
Cover the casserole with the lid and place in the oven. Cook for about 2 hours until the meat is soft. Add a little water if it cooks a bit dry. Once ready, remove from the oven and leave to cool to room temperature. Add chutney and stir.
Line a Le Creuset 26cm Pie Dish with one sheet of pastry. Spoon in the filling and place a Le Creuset Pie Bunny in the middle.
Cut the second pastry sheet into even strips of 2cm wide. Create a lattice effect, laying the strips on top of the filling until the pie is fully covered. Brush with egg and place into the oven to bake for 45 – 50 minutes, until the pastry is golden and crispy. Serve with chopped fresh tomatoes and atjar.
