Step 1: Ingredients
2 Sheets Puff Pastry
2 cups shredded cooked turkey
250 gr sour cream
2 Table spoon Tomato Relish
1 Tea spoon ground cummin
1/2 Table spoon Chillie flakes
2 table spoon finely chopped Parsley
Salt to taste
Ground black pepper to taste
1 egg -for coating
What you need to cook the Turkey
2-3 Table spoon oil
1-1 1/2 tea spoon chillie powder
1/2 Tea spoon turmaric powder
2-3 tea spoon Curry powder.
2 cloves garlic -not in picture
Salt to taste
Step 2: Cook Turkey
Cut the onions into small pieces and temper in the hot oil.Grind the garlic and add to the oil.When the onion color changes and when you smell the garlic aroma throw in the turkey and mix together..Add salt and leave it covered on slow flame.Time to time mix it a little bit,half done add the other dry ingredients and cook on slow fire.Add little bit water only if necessary.Cook with out gravy.
Step 3: Shred the Turkey
Once the cooked turkey is cool,use your grinder to shred the turkey.
Step 4: Mix All
Now add sour cream,Tomato relish,cummin,black pepper,chillie flakes chopped parsely,and salt to the turkey and mix with your hand..I used more parsely than the given recipe as I love this.Hmm this filling is really nice for the bread or Rotti as a spread.The tomatoe Relish is home made which I have it bottled and use it as and when I need.
Step 5: Roll + Cut + Fill
If you have the puff pastry in the freezer ,leave it out over night to defrost.Pre heat the oven to 200°C .
Place a sheet of pastry on a sheet of baking paper and roll out until you can cut it into a 24cm circle.Use a cake tin or a plate as a guide.Spread the turkey mix over the pastry leaving a 2cm border.Roll out the second sheet of pastry a little larger than the first,so you can cut it into 25cm circle.Place over the pie and use a fork to crimp the two sheets of pastry together all around the edge.
Step 6: Decorate and Brush
Decorate the top with cut out left over pastry and brush the top with beaten egg.
Step 7: Bake & Enjoy
Now bake the pie until it is golden and puffed for about 20-25 minutes.Serve warm or at room temperature.
