Meat Pie with Yoghurt Topping

Lightly spiced curry ground beef , shortcrust and a special Yoghurt topping - delicious with a salad or two.

This pie can be made with or without the shortcrust.  I like it both ways, but it looks so much more inviting with a crust.

It is really up to you whether you want the crust or not - pressed for time... leave the crust.

Meat Pie with Yoghurt Topping

1 Roll Frozen Shortcrust, defrosted

2 Onions, thinly sliced
250g Mushrooms, sliced
1kg Ground Beef {Mince}
1 can (215g) Tomato Puree
2 TB Flour
1 TB + 1 t Curry Powder
Salt and Black Pepper, to taste

1 cup Plain Yoghurt
3 Extra-Large Eggs, beaten
1/3 cup Flour
Salt and Pepper, to taste

1.) Pre-heat oven to 200 deg C (400 deg F) - Spray a 20 x 30cm oven dish with Spray 'N Cook.
2.) Roll out the Shortcrust and line the prepared oven dish {bottom & sides} - chill 15 minutes in the refrigerator.
3.) Remove from the refrigerator - prick all over with a fork - bake "blind" {using waxpaper and beans or rice} for 10 minutes - remove from the oven and take out the waxpaper/beans - prick the crust again all over - return to the oven and bake a further 5 minutes.
4.) Whilst the crust is baking, make the filling: saute the Onion in the Oil until just soft - add the mushrooms and fry until soft and brown - remove from pan and keep aside.
5.) Stir-fry the Ground Beef using the same pan until brown and done - add the Onions and Mushrooms back - mix the Tomato Puree, Flour, Curry Powder and Salt/Pepper - add to the meat mixture and mix well - simmer a few minutes until hot.
6.) Once the crust has finished the last 5 minutes of baking, set the oven to 160 deg C (315 deg F).
7.) Spoon the meat mixture into the crust.
8.) Add the Yoghurt, Flour and Salt/Pepper to the beaten Eggs - beat until well combined and smooth - pour over the filling and bake 30 minutes until the topping has set {it should be very light brown, and slightly cracked - then it is ready}
9.) Remove pie from the oven and leave to stand 5 minutes before slicing.

Out of the oven and resting for 5 minutes.

Serve with vegetable sides or salads {a hamburger bun is great with this dish}

Hope you enjoy!
