About Carrot Halwa pies Recipe
The inspiration for this recipe comes from Chetna Makan's book THE CARDAMOM TRAIL. Chetna was a participant on the Great British Bake off , and on the show as well as in her book, she marries Indian flavours and international bakes in the most amazing ways. Chetna's halwa tarts have a moong dal halwa filling and a shortcrust pastry base. I used my favourite carrot halwa encased in some quick puff pastry. The buttery, flaky layers of the pastry really elevates the carrot halwa to another level altogether!

How to make Carrot Halwa pies
My Tip:These pies can be stored for 2-3 days. The puff pastry can be prepared 4-5 days before and the filling a day before. This recipe makes on 9 inch pie or five 4 inch pies. You can use ready made puff pastry or regular puff pastry instead of quick puff. While handling the dough , make sure the butter remains as cold as possible . If it seems like its melting , chill for few minutes and continue .
