Chicken and Mushroom Quiche

Quiche is  my families favourite dish  We just love it .. You will find it in our parties & family gatherings ..I normally make mini quiches which becomes easier to serve. The best thing is it can be served for breakfast/dinner brunch  and eaten warm or cold taste good either ways.
You can choose the filling you want  you can add bacon,ham ,chicken tikka ,smoked chicken,leftover roast chicken mushrooms the list is endless...here is a simple recipe which has never failed me..


Ingredients:
for the pie crust
150 gms/1 cup+1 tbsp refined flour /maida
75 gms cold butter
cold water to knead
pinch of salt

for the filling
1.5 cup chicken shredded(boiled with salt & pepper)
8-10 mushrooms chopped finely
1 medium onion chopped
1 small capsicum
2 eggs
1/2 cup fresh cream
1/2 cup milk
1 cup  grated cheese
1/4 tsp nutmeg powder
1 tsp crushed black pepper/as needed
1/2 tsp chilli flakes (optional)
salt to taste





Method:
Mix the butter with the flour till it resembles crumbs..

Add cold water & knead to soft dough.

Cover the dough & keep it in the refrigerator for 30 min

Then roll it & spread it evenly on greased tart mould.

Refrigerate for 15-20 min.

Mix eggs ,milk ,cream, nutmeg powder together till smooth and creamy.

In the prepared tart mould put chicken pieces, then the milk & egg mixture.

Add chopped capsicum & chopped onion and coriander leaves

Lastly sprinkle cheese & bake in preheated oven for 30-35 min.

De mould once the tart  leaves the sides of the mould.

Slice it & serve it warm or cold.
