I came to the realisation this week that, despite being a born-and-raised Kiwi mummy, there was something that was missing from my life. Something so quintessentially ‘New Zealand’ that I’m pretty embarrassed to have been overlooking it for so long.
I couldn’t remember the last time I had eaten a pie.
There are few things we hold dear as a nation, but our collective love of pies has to be one of them. Specifically, in recent times, Kiwis love chucking curry in a pie.
Look, I may be ridiculously good at many things – such as online shopping and liking stranger’s photos on Instagram – but I have never in my life made a curry from scratch and I’m not about to start at age 37.
That’s for the experts, and the experts are My Main Course.
Last night we whipped up these delicious pies as per the suggestion on the back of the Thai Chicken Curry pouch. Grab these in the supermarket, flip the pack over and all the ingredients you need to create a kick-ass dinner are right there for you to pick up with your shopping.
When you get home, jump online at www.mymaincourse.co.nz for assembly instructions.
We recreated My Main course’s Pot Pie recipe (find it here) using our new piemaker (I may have impulsively bought because PIES!), and it was a perfect family meal that made 4 pies from one pack of Thai Chicken Curry + some added ingredients.
Check out the ingredients – nothing fancy or complicated here!
Into the piemaker after minimal prep,
And check out the end result!
Don’t pooh-pooh this dinner idea because you think pies are ghetto. This chicken curry is an elegant, light filling that’s so full of flavour and is perfectly complemented by the fresh coriander.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!
New family fave right there.
