A nutty crunchy peanut filling; combo of tamari, soy sauce, earthy cumin and smoked paprika, topped with crispy cheesy golden velvety potato is an assault on your senses as you bite into this Red Dragon Pie. It’s like biting into a deep intoxicating pie of whoopee.  Fragrant aromas of thyme and coriander waft through. Visually and taste-wise, the potato topping nicely compliments the aduki beans and peanut filling.

Make this dish:

  • When ready to have a grounding yet heartening Sunday lunch
  • When your mates are coming over for game night and you want nosh that is warming
  • When it’s a cold autumn evening and you wanna lounge in front of the screen
