Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

Notes about this recipe

  • DKennedy on February 22, 2021

    Made these as my contribution to our shared Supper club (socially distanced) menu. I loved these. The filling is fragrant and well balanced. The recipe for the dough worked, but more detailed instructions on how to wrap would have been helpful. I found some online. I have some leftover filling in the freezer and plan to make them using store bought wrappers from our local Indian market. Overall, a great recipe. The spice mix is key. Next time buy ground chicken instead of dicing it up myself.
