To make the stew

To make the pasties
- Reheat oven to 200C. Take pastry and gently roll out into a slightly larger square.
- Cut the square into 6. Place a small amount of the chilled curry mixture in the centre of each, egg wash around the edges and fold over into triangles. Repeat.
- Prong the edges with a fork, prick the tops and egg wash them.
