Fish Potato Pie

15. Fish Potato PiePin


At times, all we need is some comfort food for lunch or dinner. Even though I am always at loggerheads whether the folks would love it, I have always get good responses from them to my utter surprise. Taking from my experience of making the potpie and seeing how much the folks enjoyed – and even requesting it several times – I wanted to try this fish pie recipe as soon as I saw it in a Vanitha Pachakam magazine I picked up while coming back from home last year.


There is nothing in it – very straightforward, easy to make and very filling too! With a bunch of fussy eaters at home, I hardly had any leftovers for this. Go ahead, and make this for some comfort food. This would be amazing with a fresh salad on the side, but nobody had the time to wait for the salad and just wanted to dig in! 🙂 Off to the recipe…

    I was just looking at your recipe with my Kashmiri niece and she asked, “What is pie?”
    We make a similar dish in the US with chicken. Looks scrummy!
