For the mildly adventurous this is the more flavorful cousin to Trader Joe’s Steak & Ale Pies.  Similarly, this pie heats up nicely in the microwave.  While a little chewy, the crust is not soggy after heating.  Considering it was heated in a microwave, the nicely flavored crust is fairly crispy.  Instructions for oven heating are also included.


The filling comes out hot after the 5 minutes in the microwave.  The filling is flavorful and mild for a curry.trader joe, chicken balti pie, curry, frozen dinner, nutrition  There are little bits of spicy things in the filling that makes each forkful taste slightly different.   In the same way, when there’s a chunk of crust on the fork with some of the curry, the taste is different yet.  A thick paste-like curry sauce surrounds relatively small pieces of chicken, potatoes and carrots.   At 740 calories, with about half coming from fat, this is just about a meal in itself.

It’s comfort food, flavorful, good, different and dinner for two for six dollars!

Calories:  740 per pie     Price: $5.99 (two pies)
