Golden Onion & Corn Quiche

Golden Onion & Corn Quiche


For the pastry
Maida -200g
Butter (frozen) -100g (preferably unsalted)
Baking powder-1/4 tsp
Salt-to taste
Beaten egg-1 [ I did not add ]
Ice cold water-as required ( which will be a few drops)
Sieve maida ,salt and baking powder together. Grate in the butter and mix it with the flour with your fingertips till it resembles coarse sand.
Add in the beaten egg and water and gather it into a soft dough.[I just added 2-3 tbsp water].
Roll it out on a lightly floured surface and lift it up carefully and line the tin that you will be baking it in.If it breaks up and you need to do a patch work, big deal! It wouldn't be seen outside! ;)
Which ever tin you are using, make sure the dough comes a little way up the sides, so that it can hold the filling in. 
For the filling

Boiled and shredded chicken-1/2 c[I used equal amount of corn kernels]
Onion-250 g ,chopped
Cheese-100g [ I used Mozarella and used very less quantity--about 3 tbsp for the filling and then I grated a little bit on top of the quiches before baking]
Milk-1 cup,Beaten eggs-3 ,Instead of these,I used 300 ml cream
Salt and pepper to taste
Oil- as needed
Heat oil and slightly fry the corn till it is golden brown. Add in the onions and fry till onions have caramelised.
Add milk,beaten eggs, cream,cheese,salt and pepper and mix well,let it thicken for a while[about 5 minutes].
Switch off the flame.
Pour into the pastry case and bake for 25 mins or till golden brown.
