I love butter and I love pastry. But working with it is a challenge in Mumbai where the temperature is anything from hot to hotter to hottest. So I stuck my hands in ice cold water and rubbed them with ice-cubes to keep them cold.
I made these pies in a muffin tray. Individual servings, perfect for a light lunch or dinner… or even as an in-between-meals kinda snack.
You can fix yourself a salad on the side, in case you feel guilty about all that butter in the pastry, and want something to cut that fat… But it’s quite unnecessary.
These pies don’t feel heavy on the stomach at all… and butter is in any case good for the soul.
