Turkey Pie

Bake the pie this afternoon with leftover turkey from X'mas party, oh yeah, I kept it that long ;p

I used AG's short crust pastry recipe:

250g flour
150g butter
pinch of salt
60-80ml cold water
  1. Cut the butter into small pieces and mix it with the flour til crumbly
  2. Add in salt and the water. Mix to form a dough. Shape it into ball and press it flat. Wrap with plastic and refrigerate for 30 minutes
Filling ingredients
1/2 onion, diced
200g roast turkey meat
200g frozen baby green peas
1 tbsp worcestershire sauce
2 tbsp flour
pinch of salt
pinch of pepper
200g water (I boiled the water with turkey bone)
  1. Heat a tbsp of olive oil in a pan, add in onion, stir fry until fragrant.
  2. Add in turkey meat, cook for 2 minutes
  3. Add in flour, cook for 30 seconds
  4. Pour in water and season with worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper. Cook until it boils and thickens. Remove from the pan and set aside to cool
To make the pie:
  1. Roll out the pastry to 3mm thickness and line a greased ovenproof pie dish with it. Prick the pastry with fork
  2. Put in the turkey filling
  3. Top it with another piece of pastry and press the sides with finger
  4. Cut a few holes at the top. Brush top with milk, and decorate with cut/mold out pastries
  5. Bake at 200C for 35 minutes
Little girl had this for dinner

Kept this for 2moro

Verdict: yummy turkey filling with the buttery and crusty pastry. I'm regreting for not keeping more leftover turkey now.
