Chicken Tofu Quiche

Preparing Quiche has three different steps to be followed. Need to prepare the pie crust , filling ( can be vegetarian or non vegetarian , I preferred to have Chicken stuff ) , and finally the custard. Once all the three steps are done , we can finally assemble the Quiche .
Let us first start preparing the crust. Below are the ingredients to prepare the pie Crust.

Ingredients for Pie Crust
All purpose flour – 2/3 cup
Butter – 1/3 cup , cut into small cubes ( maintained in cold temperature )
Salt – a pinch
Cold water – 1 tbsp

Preparation :
  • Combine the dry ingredients ( All purpose flour , salt ) together.
  • Add the butter cubes and mix them well by combining them using only fingers.
  • Once the butter is combined well with the flour , add cold water little by little and form a dough.
  • Then wrap the dough using cling flim wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours.

Note : I used the zip lock bag for air tight.

Rolling the Dough :
  • Dust the surface with  flour and start rolling into 9 inch circle ( extra 1 inch is required , so that it will be easy to place on the Pie mould )

  • Place the rolled dough on the pie mould and remove the excess dough.
  • Prick the pie crust surface with fork , so that the dough would not raise while baking.

  • Preheat oven to 190’c and bake for 10 mins until light brown and keep them aside to cool.

Chicken - 1/4 cup
Tofu - 4 tbsp ( chopped into cubes )
Red chilli powder - 1/2 tsp

4. Heat oil in a pan , add onion , capsicum , finally add chicken , tofu and give it a quick stir.
5. Keep them aside for assembling the Quiche.

Egg – 1
Red chili powder – 1 tsp
White pepper powder – ½ tsp
