Sweet Punch challenge for this month went for savoury quiche and was hosted by Ria..I was really happy to see this savoury bake once i came back from vacation, We love quiche lorraine which quite famous here and its basically prepared with leek chunks, eggs, cream and cheese, this golden onion quiche went for onions,chicken or else paneer or veggies with a homemade pastry sheet...I was really excited to try out this delicious quiche and enjoyed making them before a week, we loved having this quiche with a simple cucumber salad for our lunch... Its really a filling quiche to enjoy along with a simple salad or soup for dinner or else for lunch with a fruit dessert, i went for a medium sized quiche using a regular cake tin and they turned out really awesome..I made few changes, i skipped the beaten egg in pastry dough and used less butter also used less milk and egg in the filling otherwise i prepared as same as the original recipe went for..
For Pastry Dough:
50gms Butter (frozen)
1/4tsp Baking powder
Iced cold water (if required)
Sieve maida,salt and baking powder together, grate the butter and mix it with flour using ur finger tips till it ressembles as coarse sand..add the water and gather into soft dough..roll it in a lightly floured surface and line it over the baking sheet lined in a baking tin..arrange in fridge until u prepare the filling..
Onion & Chicken Filling:
1/2cup Boiled and shredded chicken
2nos Onions (chopped)
2nos Beaten eggs
Heat oil and fry slightly the chicken till its turns golden brown, add the onions and fry until the onions turns caramalised..put off the flame and let this chicken-onion mixture gets cool...Add the milk, cheese, beat eggs,salt and pepper, whish everything well...spread the chicken and onion over the already prepared pastry sheet and pour the prepared milk-egg-cheese mixture..Bake for 25minutes at 350F until the crust turns brown..
Cool it completely and serve it in wedges..
