i made creamy mushroom filling
CREAMY CHEESY MUSHROOM FILLING
1 tin mushrooms chopped fine
1 onion chopped fine
2 tablespoons white flour
1 cup skimmed milk, or whole milk or if u wanna get fat u can use cream.... ( 1/2 cup cream)
salt and pepper to taste
and grated cheese of your choice
i used cheddar and emmental cheese.
heat a pan with oil and sautee the onions till pale golden and then add the flour and sautee for a few minutes and add the mushrooms and then the milk. cook till it thickens. add your seasonin, u can also add some tabasco. cool when thick and then mix in your grated cheese.
heat the oven to 180 degrees.
take a ball of the pie dough and roll into a small round and fill with ur filling and then close to make a half moon, seal verry well or else filling seaps out while baking. make all ur pies this way and then bake on a baking sheet till golden.
U CAN ALSO USE PUFF PASTRY. but remember puff pastry is full of fat..... and u dotn get it in inida.
this keeps verry well. u can take it on picnics...
DONT EAT TOO MANY COZ U HAVE TO MAKE THEM AGAIN AND AGAIN!!!!
