Posted by Picasa
Well I missed posting last week as I had one of those bugs going around, so will post two recipes this week

Curried Fish Pie

1 onion finely chopped
50 Grams butter
1 tablespoon chicken stock powder
1 tablespoon curry powder
1 litre milk
plain flour to thicken sauce
500 grams white fish (pink ling or flake work well, and I have used tinned tuna and salmon)
200 grams scallops
200 grams prawns ( I just use prawns if I have them)
mashed potato
grated cheese
chopped parsley
Melt butter and fry onion then add stock, curry powder and milk.
Simmer then thicken with plain flour mixed with a little milk
Add seafood and gently simmer until fish cooked.
Put in ovenproof dish, top with mashed potato, cheese and parsley
Brown under grill

Quick Chicken Curry

One cooked chicken ( I take the bones out)
1/2 packet dutch curry and rice soup
I do add extra curry powder
2 teaspoons chicken stock powder
2 cups milk
1 cup water
500 grams  frozen winter vegetables

Heat milk and water, and add soup mix, curry and stock
Add vegs and then chicken last so it doesn't break up too much

I have added pasta to this.  It is a good standby if you have visitors at the last minute
