The picture above also shows the latest addition to our family, the cutest little pup, an Alsatian. Mika, that's what my son has named him, keeps us on our toes!! He came into our lives on December 10 and it hasn't been the same since!
For the paneer quiche, I used 200 grams of paneer. I cut it into squares and fried them with a bit of salt and pepper till they turned golden brown. As for the pastry dough, I had kept several batches in the fridge and kept on using as and when needed. After the pastry shell was baked blind, I layered the bottom with the fried paneer. Some of the squares were crushed so that the layering was even.
Then some fried onions went in with finely cut spring onions. On top of that three cubes of Amul cheese went in. I did not grate the cheese but tore them off into smaller uneven chunks. Then a mix of three eggs and about 150 ml of cream went in with a seasoning of salt and pepper. The quiche was baked for 30 minutes at 180C. Towards the last ten minutes of baking I brought the temperature to 160C as I didn't want it to get into a darker brown than what is shown in the picture.
