Quiche with cheat pastry!

Crust:

Maida 2cups
Oil 1/2 cup
Cold water 1/2cup
Salt 1 tsp

Quiche1

Put all these in a bowl and gently mix with a fork just until combined, don’t over mix or the crust will not remain flaky and light.

Make sure not to over mix or you’ll lose the flakiness!

Gently mix with a fork, as soon as all of it comes together (at thi point it might or might not form a whole ball of dough, there will be seperate pieces too, don’t try to make a ball of dough! Just make sure there is no dry flour around) transfer it to your baking dish or in my case a handle-less fry pan :p  Use your hand to flatten the crust, equally distributing the dough to make a good base. It would be half inch thin. Now put it in the wannabe oven to cook until slightly golden on a medium low flame to prevent burning. Prick in certain places with a fork so the pie base doesn’t poof. Turn off heat when slightly golden brown or base looks cooked.
Filling:

Hunter beef 1 cup thinly cut
Capsicum 1/2 cup chopped
Corn 1/2 cup chopped
Onion 1/2 cup chopped
Garlic 2 tsp
Oil 1tbs
Soya sauce 2tbs
Chili sauce 2 tbs
Salt and pepper to taste

quiche 2
Saute garlic then add in all the ingredients and cook on high flame for two minutes till onion is slightly soft, adjust spices and turn off heat.
Custard:

Eggs 6
Yogurt or cream 1 cup full
Salt and pepper to taste

Quiche3

Beat with a fork yogurt or cream till smooth and add eggs and spices and beat with the fork till combined.
After crust is done put filling, then top with the custard, and top with Cheddar cheese if using and bake om medium heat till golden brown and the custard looks set, and if using cheese,  then the cheese is melted and colored.
I’ve tried cooking on high flame but that kinda burns bits of the crust which I’m fine with, but they look kinda burnt when you serve it to others:p so stick to the medium flame, it will take long but it’ll be worth the wait!
I personally top it with loads of jalapeño sauce and chili garlic sauce to bring on the heat!

The filling can be substituted by so many things!

There are like a million possibilities depending on what ingredients you have on hand:p

Thus for me, every quiche I make has a different filling:p

You can use:
1. Tomatoes, capsicum, green chilies, garlic and onions.

2. Chicken, corn and mushrooms

3. Onions and capsicum.

4. Mushrooms, garlic and onions.

5. Infinitteeeee optionssss!!!
