This pie is cheap to make, delicious, and utterly satisfying.
Soak peas overnight. Drain and pressure cook (about 20 minutes) or bring to a boil and simmer till they are soft. Simmer the onions in about 2 Tbsp. of oil together with the cup of water with the dissolved cube, until water is nearly evaporated and onions are well softened. Add the tablespoon of curry, salt and pepper to taste, stir it around for 2 or three minutes and switch it off and mix in the cooked peas.
While onions are cooking, make the pastry (or buy ready made). Put 300 grams plain flour (I think it's called all purpose flour in the U.S.)in a bowl, add a pinch of salt and 150 grams of cold (as in straight from the fridge) margarine cut up into little cubes. Mix all together with a knife and add enough COLD water to make a dough. Knead just enough to get it together. Roll out 2/3 of the pastry to line an 8 inch square pan or whatever. Tip in the peas and onions mixture. Roll out and cover with the remaining 1/3 of pastry. Prick top with a fork and bake in a 200 degree C. oven (392 degrees F).
This is very filling and is enough to serve four people.

I think that 200 degrees is about 400 degrees F. You couldn't bake anything at 92 degrees F. That is just a hot summer day here in Alabama.
Editor's Note: Oops, that should have been 392 degrees F (so almost 400). That was an editing error, not Cett's. Sorry about that, it is fixed now.
