Spicy Mutton Potato Pie (Scotch Pie)

           The inspiration of such a preparation is actually a competition held in facebook...The main ingredient had to be mutton..So while in search of a different recipe, I found a mutton pie..So added some extra ingredients from my side, created my own methods for preparation...& this was the result !! As this was an experiment, I was not sure about the flavor...My husband was the first one to taste it..He didn't speak anything after having a spoon of it...My fingers were kept crossed still...Then I saw the perfect smile in his face when he is really satisfied with something...Ahh !! relieved...Yes..My experiment turned out to be  a success !!!
So posted for the competition & ready to share with you all....

         A pie is a baked dish which is usually made of a dough casing that covers or completely contains a filling of various sweet or savoury ingredients...This is a two-crust pie that has the filling completely enclosed in the pastry shell...

         Small mutton pies are commonly known as Scotch pies in Scotland & UK which was a part of luxury ..Today, they are less usual but no compromise in its taste..In this recipe, mutton is accompanied with mashed potatoes...Other vegetables like carrots, beans etc can also be added...
