Have you got a good recipe for a Hunza Pie? I would really appreciate you sending me one.

Hunza pie recipe

1 c wholemeal flour

1/2 c cold salted butter

6 silver beet leaves with stems

1/2 c cooked brown rice

1 c grated cheese

1 egg In a food processor

Mill the flour and add the butter in five or six lumps, one at a time, until the mixture looks crumbly. Add a little cold water until the pastry forms a ball - it should take 2-3 tbsp. Wrap the pastry in cling film and place in the refrigerator for at least an hour. Line a tart shell with the pastry and bake in a 320 C oven for 15-20 minutes. Meanwhile, wash 6 silver beet leaves, including stems. Separate the leaves from the stems and plunge each separately into salted boiling water. The leaves should take about 2 minutes and the stems about 7 minutes. When they have cooled, squeeze as much water from the leaves as possible and roughly chop them. Slice the stems into 2cm pieces. Mix stems and leaves in a bowl with 100g of cooked brown rice, 200g of grated tasty cheese and 1 egg. Season with salt and pepper and bake in a preheated 180C oven for 20-25 minutes. Serves 6-8.
