Curried Ham Pot Pie

Another recipe from the Philadelphia Inquire recipe section published 29 or more years ago.
This is not an easy recipe, there is a lot of chopping and pre cooking as well as the baking it self. You need to give yourself plenty of time to make this dish.If you like a good curry this recipe will be well worth the effort and time.
I have changed this recipe slightly so it is no longer as it appeared in the paper but very very close.

  8. Lay pie crust on a flat surface lightly floured,fold the pre rolled crust in half and then in half again so it is quartered.( I use store bought pie crust to help save time,you can however if you wish make your own pie crust)
  9. Lay quartered crust to the center of the pie pan and unfold onto the pie.Trim the edges and crimp to seal edges. cut 6 2inch slits in top of the pie
  10. beat the egg and water together, brush the top of the crust with egg wash.
