Tart baking is my favourite,and this especially

taste good.So,do try this recipe and post in your
125 gm flour
1 tsp sugar
25 gm butter
1 egg yolk
Milk to bind
A pinch of salt
Bind all together to a firm dough,and set aside
till you make the filling .
Divide into portions ( makes 12 ).
Flatten each on a chappathi press between oil
sheets or use the rolling pin ( I find the press
easier and quicker)
