its a weekend project:
my 1st quiche..
i was contemplating
either chef nermala's recipe
or from this big book recipe??
i felt it would be such a waste
of money and of time..
and whats the point of going to class
if you are not using & trying out
the chef's recipe that you've learned?
so, chef's recipe it is!
- 200gm flour
- 1/4tsp salt
- 110gm cold butter
- 1 egg yolk
- 1/4tsp lemon juice
- 50ml cold water
- in a big bowl, combine flour, salt and cold butter and until it resembles breadcrumbs <-- use fingertips or fork.
- make a well in the centre.. pour in the mixture of egg yolk and half of cold water+cold lemon juice. mix till combine.. until all the flour (now its called a dough) comes together and starts to pull away from the sides of the bowl
- form the dough into a disc and wrap with plastic. keep in fridge for 30mins.
- meanwhile, prepare the filling..
- after 30mins take out the dough and roll out on the lightly floured surface. and fit into your preferred tart pan or mini pan.
- keep in fridge for another 30mins <-- i missed this step! resulting in not so crusty crust :(
- bake in 190C preheated oven for 30mins for 9inch tart pan or 10-15mins for mini pie pan.
- 250gm mushroom - any kind. mix 2 types (button and oyster) is recommended by chef
- 1 big yellow onion
- 2 cloves garlic
- 2tbs olive oil
- 4 eggs
- 240ml (1cup) heavy cream
- salt & pepper to taste
- chop onion, garlic & mushroom
- stir fry them using olive oil until all the mushroom dried out liquid <-- i added 1tbs lemon juice just because i think it would taste better :p
- mix eggs and cream and season it.
- add cooked mushroom into the eggs & cream mixture
- pour into the baked pastry crust
- sprinkle cheddar cheese on top
- bake for another 35-40mins or until goldenish in color..
apart from not crusty crust.. it taste quite good!and this 1st attempt of baking the crust does not hit the target. still far far away from the bulls eye! gotta practice again & again.. now.. which pastry shall i try? another quiche recipe i suppose?
