Make

  1. Heat oven to 400F / 204C degrees.
  2. Spread sweet potatoes out on a sheet pan. Toss with oil, garam masala (portions for the sweet potatoes) and sugar. Season with some salt.
  3. Transfer sweet potatoes to the oven and bake, shaking the pan a few times while they cook, until tender, ~30 minutes.
  4. While potatoes roast, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil (portion for the pot pie) and then onions and carrots with a pinch of salt. Saute until onions and carrots are softened, 3 to 4 minutes. Add butter, flour and tomato paste and saute until no dry spots of flour remain.
  5. Add turkey and cook, breaking turkey apart, until turkey is cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes.
  6. Next add in peas (no need to defrost them, just break them up as they cook), stock and coconut milk. Bring to a simmer and simmer for 2 minutes.
  7. Remove skillet from heat and cover with puff pastry (if it's too big, trim with scissors). Use a fork to press the edges of the pastry against the sides of the skillet and trim off any excess.
  8. Whisk egg yolk and water and brush over puff pastry. Make a few slits with a knife and bake in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes, until golden.
  9. Serve pot pie and sweet potatoes with yogurt. Enjoy!

I am absolutely making this again. It was amazing. I added some turmeric and cayenne but that doesn't change it too much.

Delicious! Great flavor. I didn't use any stock, butter or flour. It was great!

I'm not a big fan of the puffed pastry crust, so I made a mashed potato base and a drop biscuit crust and it was delicious!

Delicious! We aren't huge fans of curry stuff, but this was fabulous. I used our large cast iron skillet, which was perfect.
