For tart

  • 1 cup flour 
  • 60 grams cold butter 
  • 3 tbsp cold water 
  • Salt to taste.

For –

  • 1 & 1/2 cups flour
  • 90 gm butter
  • 5 tbsp cold water

For filling

  • 300gm Chicken breast fillet (boil with salt,pepper and soya sauce) 
  • 2 cloves garlic 
  • 1 medium onion 
  • 1 medium capsicum 
  • 1 tsp pepper powder 
  • some chilly flakes
  • Some oregano or Italian seasoning 
  • 1 tbsp sou sauce
  • Parsley 
  • 2 tsp olive oil or 1 tbsp butter

For Custard

  • 3 eggs 
  • 1oo ml fresh cream 
  • 1/3 cup milk 
  • salt & pepper 
  • 3 tbsp cream cheese 
  • Some parmesan cheese (opt)
  • Some Mozzarella cheese for topping 


  1. Combine the flour and salt. Your butter should be cold. Cut it in cubes and mix it well with the flour to get a bread crumb like texture. You can also use a food processor for even mixing. Then slowly add the water and knead. Don’t over knead just until all combined. 
  2. Chill it for one hour
  3. Roll the dough in between parchment papers and fit into the bottom of the pan, letting the sides flop over. Fit the bottom and sides, and then using the back of the palm fit into the corners. Cut the excess off the top so that the dough is flush. 
  4. Place the pan in the freezer for at least 20 mins, longer is fine too. The dough should not bend to the touch. 
  5. Preheat your oven to 180. 

Tip :Rollout the dough on top of the parchment paper it will help u to lift the pastry dough easily and place it on the mould. 

Blind baking; Take out the pan from the freezer spread a parchment paper and put some grains or pulses over it like this and bake it for 15 to 20 minutes. This is to prevent the raising of the tart while baking. Take out the parchment paper and bake it for another 10 minutes.
Note: If you don’t have a loose bottom pan, after baking the tart slowly move it to an oven-safe dish which you are going to serve the quiche.So that it will be easy for you to serve. Otherwise demolding the tart will be difficult.
