This savory pie emerged from our experiments with Vadouvan paste, a wonderfully rich and elegant flavor base. We wanted a warm, comforting meal to complement the cold weather outside, and this was the prize winning pie. The recipe balances the subtle, hearty flavor of the toasted curry, with the earthy goodness of cauliflower and butternut squash. If you don’t ave Vadouvan paste, this versatile recipe can be easily adapted to feature other flavor combinations like Kashmiri Curry, Besar or even Pumpkin Pie Spice!
