I first made this for friends and I can safely say they will vouch for this one 🙂

For the base

All Purpose Flour (Maida) – 200 gms

Butter – 100 gms (at room temperature – tough and not melting)

Salt to taste

Pepper for seasoning

Cheddar Cheese – 1 tbsp (grated)

Egg – 1 no (beaten)

Water – at room temperature

 

  1. Mix gently with hands all ingredients except Egg and Water. You should get a crumbly texture somewhat like bread crumbs
  2. Add the beaten egg along with a tsp of water to the above mixture little by little as you keep working on the dough gently till you get a soft ball (keep repeating the egg and water step till you get a nice soft ball of dough)
  3. Knead the dough lightly
  4. Divide the dough into two parts and roll 1 part out on a floured board into a circle with enough thickness
  5. Gently roll the above on a floured rolling pin and unroll it over a greased pie tray /pan
  6. Ease out the excess dough into the pan. DONOT pull the excess dough outwards since the dough shrinks during baking. So press the dough inwards and downwards towards the sides

 

Filling

Olive Oil – 1 tbsp

Ginger,garlic & green chilli – 1 tbsp (crushed) – optional

Vegetables – combination (sweetcorn, capsicum,spring onions or onions, spinach etc)

Eggs – 4 nos

Cheddar Cheese – 1/2 cup

Milk or cream – 1 cup

Mozzarella Cheese

  1. Add olive oil to a pan and saute the Ginger,garlic & green chilli coarse paste
  2. Fry onions till half cooked. Keep aside to cool
  3. In a bowl mix milk, eggs and cheddar cheese with a whisk. Season it with salt & pepper
  4. On the base gently spread cooked onions, sweetcorn, capsicum – Ensure there is no water in the mixture else the base will get soggy
  5. Pour the milk mixture on top. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese
  6. Bake in a preheated oven for 15 min at 200 degree C or till the top appears golden

 

* I kept strips of dough to make the criss cross . If you plan to do this prick all corners and overlaps with a fork

** for non-veg option you can use -chicken pieces / shrimps etc…. cook them along with onions till they are dry

 

till next time…..have fun cooking! 🙂
