Cheesy Onion & Corn Pie

After a decent bunch of sweet bakes from Baking Eggless, owned by Gayathri we are landing to savoury world and this month's bake was suggested by the brain child of the event. I loved savoury tarts or pies and obviously i enjoyed thoroughly this month's challenge.Gayathri chosed meat pies from Saveur and the original recipe goes for meat and eggs in both filling and the dough. Obviously the members of this group have to skip completely both the meat and eggs with a savoury filling in a eggless dough.

I replaced the meat with onions,corns and grated cheese, i spiced the onions and corn kernels simply with pepper powder,coriander leaves and salt, topped it with grated cheese while baking. They turned out prefect, fantabulous,cheesy and delicious, i simply served this pie for our dinner with a simple salad. Make these cuties and am sure you will enjoy thoroughly these savoury mini pies.Sending to Srivalli's Summer Special Mela.

1cup All purpose flour
1cup Wheat flour
1tsp Salt
1/2cup Butter
1/2cup Iced Water

Onion & corn filling:
2no Onion (big & chopped)
1/2cup Sweet corn kernels
Pepper powder
Few coriander leaves (chopped)
2tbsp Bread crumbs
Grated cheese (as per need)

Take the flours together with salt and add in the butter,mix well.

Add iced water to the flour a bit at a time and gathering together with a fork forming a ball.

Gently drop the dough into the muffin tray

Heat oil,add the onions and saute until they turns transculent, add the sweet corn kernels,salt,pepper powder and cook for few minutes.

Once the onions gets well cooked, add the chopped coriander leaves and bread crumbs, cook for few more minutes and put off the stove.

Keep aside and let the filling cools completely.

Preheat the oven to 350F..

With a round cutter,cut the rolled dough as 24 circles.

Gently drop the dough into the greased muffin tray, fill with enough filling,top with cheese.

Cover the pie with the remaining dough circles, seal it with a fork.

Brush the top of the pie with melted butter and bake for 20-25minutes.

Enjoy the savoury pie.
