Recipe
1
In a large mixing bowl, combine 250 grams of all-purpose flour (maida) and 125 grams of cold, cubed unsalted butter. Rub the butter into the flour using your fingertips until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
2
Add 50 grams of powdered sugar and a pinch of salt to the flour-butter mixture. Mix well.
3
Gradually add 2-3 tablespoons of cold water and gently knead the mixture to form a soft dough. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
4
Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F). Grease a 9-inch tart pan with butter.
5
Roll out the chilled dough on a lightly floured surface to a thickness of about 3-4 mm. Carefully transfer the rolled dough to the prepared tart pan, pressing it gently into the edges and trimming off any excess dough.
6
Prick the base of the pastry with a fork and refrigerate for another 15 minutes.
7
Line the pastry with parchment paper and fill it with baking beans or uncooked rice. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes.
8
Remove the parchment paper and baking beans, and bake the pastry for an additional 10-12 minutes, or until it turns golden brown. Allow the pastry to cool completely before filling it with your choice of sweet or savory filling.
