Crustless Milk Tart


Salwaa’s Crustless Milk Tart
I made this quick and simple version of milk tart the other day. Allthough it’s no where as delicious as the traditional milk tart, everyone enjoyed it and it disappeared as quickly as it was made. When it came out of the oven it was quite high but it sinks and becomes denser as it cools. This recipe serves 4 and can easily be doubled if a larger quantity is required.

Ingredients:
¾ cup self-raising flour
2 cups milk
3 large eggs
½ cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
2 Tbsp butter, melted
Pinch salt
½ tsp fine cinnamon

Method:
Put all the ingredients together into a bowl or food processor and beat to a smooth batter. Pour into a buttered pie dish, approximately 23cm in diameter. Sprinkle the cinnamon over the top. Bake for 40 minutes at 180°C. Serve warm or cold. Quick and so easy to make!

@capemalaycooking
1 tsp freshly crushed black pepper
200 strong cheddar cheese
2 tsp lemon juice

Method:
Cook the chicken breasts in a little water.
Add water as needed but don’t add too much, just so it does not stick or burn to your pot.
Meanwhile chop the peppers and onions finely.
Once the chicken has cooked removed it from the pot and allow to cool.
Shred the chicken breasts into small pieces.
Heat the oil in the pot, add the onions and peppers,
sauté for about 5 minutes.
Add the rest of the spices, stir and cook a further 5 minutes, don’t add water.
Cool completely before adding the shredded chicken, cheese and lemon juice.
Fill your samosas as you normally would. Serve with a chutney dip. Delicious 😋
