How to Make Broccoli Pastry Pie

  • For the pastry:
  • Grate the broccoli finely, leaving the stalks(if you use the stalks, it might be a bit hard for a smooth pastry. So use the stalks for some other purpose).
  • In a food processor, add the flour, butter and pulse it, until it looks like breadcrumbs.
  • With the machine running, add the egg yolks and then 1 or 2 tablespoons of ice cold water, until the dough just combines.
  • Take it out and bring it together like a dough(do not knead too much).
  • Wrap it in a cling film and put it in the fridge(If you don't have a food processor make it using hands, but don't work on the dough too much).
  • For the filling:
  • Heat oil in a pan. Add the finely chopped onions and ginger garlic paste.
  • Saute, till the onion becomes transparent.
  • Now add the spices and chicken. Cook, till the chicken releases water.
  • Add the finely chopped vegetables, chicken stock or water and flour.
  • Add salt for taste. Cover the pan and cook, till it becomes thick and saucy.
  • If you are using, a shop bought chicken stock cubes, do not add flour (always try to use fresh chicken stock which is much healthier and flavourful).
  • To make the pie:
  • Take the pastry out from the fridge and knead in the grated broccoli gently, into the pastry.
  • Preheat the oven to 190 degree Celsius.
  • Roll out the pastry in between two baking paper or cling film.
  • Cut them into circles, to fit the muffin tray.
  • Place the filling inside the pastry and cover it with another pastry. Seal the edges tightly.
  • Bake it in a preheated oven for 20 to 30 minutes .
  • The sauce from the filling of the pie is enough to serve. So you don't have to make any separate gravy.
  • Serve the pie with fresh salad or steamed vegetables.
