Bring a medium saucepan of salted water to the boil. Peel potato, then cut into large chunks. Cook potato in boiling water until easily pierced with a fork, 10-15 minutes. Drain and return potato to the saucepan. Add the plant-based butter and plant-based milk and season generously with salt. Mash until smooth. Cover to keep warm.
Meanwhile, finely chop onion and garlic. Thinly slice mushrooms. Thinly slice cucumber into half-moons. Grate the carrot. Slice courgette into half-moons.
Heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Cook onions and mushrooms until just browned, 5-6 minutes. Add carrot and courgette and cook until softened, 2-3 minutes. Add tomato paste, masala paste (see ingredients) and garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Add salad leaves, vegetable stock powder, coconut milk and a splash of water and cook until thickened, 1-2 minutes. Season to taste.
Preheat the grill to high. Transfer mushroom filling to a baking dish, then top with mashed potato, smoothing it out with the back of a spoon. Sprinkle flaked almonds over the mash. Grill pie until the top is golden, 8-10 minutes.
While the pie is grilling, add cucumber, mixed leaves and a drizzle of white wine vinegar and olive oil to a medium bowl. Toss to combine. Season to taste.
Divide Indian mushroom and veggie pie between plates. Serve with garden salad.
