Vegetable Curry Pasty Recipe

I cooked these delicious perfect curry pasties as a snack but they turned into a meal, why?.....Because we ate so many that we all were so full up we did not need to cook any tea later on!

My curry pasty recipe is vegetarian. I use only a few vegetable ingredients which compliment each other very well, that with the combination of spices and my perfect pasty pastry recipe just makes these delicious little delights taste fantastic.

It is a really simple recipe to cook and you can even cook the curry filling a few hours before the pastry as it will heat through in the oven whilst cooking the pasties.

Ingredients for Jeenas Vegetable Curry Pasties Recipe
1/2 Onion (finely diced)
1 Small Red Pepper (diced small)
2 Large Mushrooms (diced small)
2-3 Potatoes (diced and boiled until soft in lightly salted water)
1 tsp Tomato Puree
1/4 tsp Garam Masala
1/4 tsp Turmeric
1 tsp Coriander Powder
1 tsp Cumin Powder
1/2 tsp Chilli Powder (optional)
Salt and Pepper to season
Jeenas Perfect Pasty Pastry
1/2 Egg Cup Full Water (only use more if needed)

How to make Jeenas Curry Pasty Recipe

How to make the filling...

Gently fry onions in some oil.

Add red peppers.

Add all of the spices.

Simmer and stir well.

Add tomato puree, stir well.

Add mushrooms and a little of the water, stir well.

Do not add too much water as you want a thick filling not a runny watery one.

When all the vegetables have softened stir the cooked potatoes into the curry filling.

How to make Jeenas curry pasty

Take a small portion of the pasty pastry recipe.

Roll out the pastry into a long rectangle.

Place some of the curry filling into the corner of the rolled out pasty pastry.

Fold over the curry filling and seal the edges by dipping your fingers in water around any edges of the pasty.

There are various ways to make your pasty from the pastry.

See below.

Place onto a greased and floured baking tray.

Brush with oil and place into a hot oven at 200C for 10-15 minutes.

After 10-15 minutes take the tray from the hot oven and brush again with oil.

Place tray back into the oven for about 10 minutes or until the pasties turn golden brown.

Once cooked you can eat the curry pasties hot or cold.

Enjoy Jeenas delicious vegetable curry pasty recipe.

Hi Jeena, I have just discovered your blog, and those pasties look great. Sort of like a cross between Cornish pasties and veggie samosas. Yum.

They look very nice and the great thing is that we can basically choose any kind of filling for it. My only problem will be to make the dough, as usual.
I will give it a shot, hope u have a nice day :)
