This week we have a spiced chicken and veg pie, wrapped in filo-like ‘warka’ pastry, which was surprisingly easy to make, even though I had to brush a batter on to a frying pan!
The result is a phenomenal tasting pie! Easily the best thing I have eaten this year! The filling is the star of the show.
Very happy with how this turned out! Everyone has to make and/or try this pie!
