Some Indian Food recipes and Kitchen Tips

Tips on Indian Cooking

When I started cooking first I had to learn everything by trial and error. These are some of my recipes for my daughters who are both newly married [:-)] whenever they feel nostalgic for Mom's cooking. Others are also welcome !

Peach Custard Pie

For the Crust
1 cup and 2 tbsp Flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup ghee

3 cup peeled and sliced peaches (about 5 fruits)
1 and 1/4 cup Granulated Sugar
1 tbsp Butter
3 tbsp flour
2 eggs


Preheat oven to 200C or 375 F
In a bowl Mix the flour, ghee and 2 tbsp very cold water with a fork. When it starts binding together, knead with hand just enough time to make a ball(Don't overdo it as crust will become tough).
With rolling pin make a 10 inch round, dusting flour to make it without sticking. (Or roll it between two sheets of butter paper). Lightly place it on a 9 inch Pie plate (or any metal plate with a rim, greased with oil). Make the edges into even looking rim with your fingers.(Like somas edge).
Put in the fridge to cool till filling is ready.

Add the 1/4 cup sugar to the sliced peaches in a bowl, shake them to mix and keep aside. Blend the butter, egg, flour and 1 cup sugar in the blender and blend till smooth. Mix into the peaches bowl.

Take out the pie crust and pour the mix onto it.
Bake for 50 or 55 minutes till top of the filling is golden and the mix is set.
Cool it on wire rack and chill until serving, minimum for an hour.
