Ingredients for shortcrust pastry

  • 120g/0.5 cup vegan butter (I used Nuttelex)*
  • 5g/0.5tsp salt
  • 5tbsp cold water

For the lids of pies

Method (shortcrust pastry)

  • Mix all the ingredients for the pastry in a large bowl. Slowly add water and knead with your fingers until the everything comes together and forms a smooth dough. Add another tbsp of water if needed.
  • Wrap it up in cling warp and keep in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Method (Curry Filling)

  • Preheat the oven to 200ºC
  • Place the pumpkin in a baking tray, spray with some oil and bake for 13-16 minutes. 
  • Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan and cook the onions for 5-6 min on medium or until golden brown.
  • Add all the spices and cook for 30sec.
  • Mix in the remaining ingredients and cook for 14-18 minutes on medium low heat or until the sauce thickens. Stir occasionally to avoid burning.
  • Stir in the baked pumpkin and chickpeas. Keep aside to let it cool.

Making the pie.

  • Take out the pastry from the fridge. On a clean working surface sprinkle some plain flour and roll it out into a sheet of about 5mm thick.
  • Using small pie tins as a guide cut circled out of the rolled pastry. The circles should be about 1cm bigger than the pie tin*
  • Brush the pie tins with some olive oil/vegan butter and press the pastry circles into the tins.
  • Cut the baking paper into circles the size of pie tins and line the crust.
  • Place baking weights on the baking paper and bake for 15 minutes (I use dried lentils, dried chickpeas, or dried rice instead of baking weights) 
  • Take out the pie tins from the oven and remove the baking paper and weights.
  • Fill the empty pie shells with curry filling* and close them with circles cut of puff pastry.
  • Brush the tops with plant milk and olive oil mixture (half-half) and bake for 20-25 minutes until golden on the top.
  • Serve hot with mint chutney.

*Cube/cut small pieces of Nuttelex in bowl and keep it cold

*I you don't have small pie tins use a big pie tin and make one big pie.

*Thaw puff pastries at room temperature before using them

*Filling should be cool before putting it into the pie crusts.
