Ingredients

  • 1 (14-ounce) package ready rolled shortcrust pastry
  • 2 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 2 red onions, peeled and chopped
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tbsp. curry powder
  • 3 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. plain flour
  • 1/4 tsp. salt

Step by Step:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F and heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a large skillet over a medium heat.
  2. Add the onions to the skillet and fry for 3 to 5 minutes or until translucent. Add the curry powder and fry for 1 minute until fragrant. Add the apples, water, and salt to the skillet and simmer for 5 minutes or until the water has evaporated.
  3. Dust your work counter with flour and lay out the pastry. Cut around a small side plate on the pastry four times to create four pastry rounds.
  4. Divide the curried apple-onion mixture into four equal portions and spoon each portion onto a pastry round. Dampen the edges of each round with water and fold over the pastry to encase the fruit and create a half moon-shaped pasty. Pinch the dampened edges together to seal and poke several holes in the top with a fork.
  5. Use a fish slice to lift each pastry onto an olive oil greased baking sheet and bake in the oven on the middle shelf for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
