Luckily, there is gluten free pff pastry out there! This is a delicious pie, I liked the combination of apples, curry powder and thyme - very unusual, and very tasty! I'll make this again! Thanks for sharing. Made for What's on the Menu

What a unique recipe for Country Captain, utilizing puff pastry! This caught my eye and we just had to try it, and I'm so glad we did. Super easy to make and very tasty, it is also a pretty dish to serve. Using an 8x8 baking dish, my sheet of pastry fit nicely right on top without rolling or fussing. The Sri Lankan curry powder I used added a warm spiciness, and hubby added sambal at the table for more heat. I will be making this again!
