Ingredients for dumplings:
2 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons butter

Preparing the pot pie:
Saute the onions and carrots in the olive oil, season with salt and pepper until soft.

Add the flour and saute a few minutes to cook out the rawness. Add the chicken broth and heat until it starts to thicken.

Add the red curry paste and coconut milk and stir until incorporated.

Add the mushrooms and peas and cook for a few more minutes.

Add the chicken, cilantro and lime juice just to heat a few minutes before serving.

Cut a biscuit in half and ladle some of the stew over the bottom half of the biscuit. Top with the other half of the biscuit, garnish with a few more cilantro leaves, chopped nuts, and serve.
