Step 1: Ingredients
Preparation Time - 20 minutes
Cooking Time - 30 minutes
2 1/2 cups - all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon - salt
1 tablespoon - granulated white sugar
1 cup - unsalted butter, chilled
1/4 to 1/2 cup - ice water
* Egg - 1
* Cumin seed - 1/2 Tsp
Chicken - 500 gm
Potato - 2
Carrot - 2
Salt - As needed
Pepper - 1 Tsp
Water - 3/4 Cup
Corn Flour - 1/4 Cup
Step 2: Process
In a food processor, place the flour, salt, and sugar and process until combined.
It will be of a grainy texture.
Step 3: Cook Chicken
I cooked the chicken using the pressure cooker. You can use any method you like.
The basic idea is to cook the chicken and shred it.
Step 4: Cook Veggies!
I cooked the potato and carrot in a pressure cooker.
Once the potato and carrot is cooked, mash it.
Keep the beans and shredded chicken ready to make the filling.
Step 5: Filling
Heat the pan with some oil.
Add Ginger garlic Paste and saute for sometime till the raw smell goes.
Add the vegetables (Potato, carrot and beans, shredded chicken).
Saute for 3 minutes.
Step 6: Sauce
Mix the cornflour well with water.
Add it to the vegetables.
Keep stirring at low flame.
Now we get a saucy texture filling.
The filling should not be watery else it would be difficult to fill the pie.
Step 7: Gather Into a Ball
Add cold water just enough to form a ball. Gather it into a ball.
Cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 30 - 60 minutes or until firm enough to roll out.
Step 8: Roll Out
On a lightly floured surface, roll out the pastry. Place the rolled pastry in a greased baking dish.
With help of a round disk cut get a perfect round shape you need for the sun pie.
Step 9: Fill
Fill the middle of the pie crust with the filling. That will form the center of the pie.
Now fill around the filling. Roll out the other ball to form the second round.
Place a small bowl over its center and press the edges of the pie with a fork.
Step 10: Sun Beam
Now we will make the sun beam.
With the help of knife, make slits around.
Step 11: Twist
Twist the slits slightly in one direction so that the filling is seen.
Beat an egg and brush it over the Sun Pie. It will give a golden crust.
Sprinkle some cumin seeds in the middle portion.
Step 12: Bake
Preheat the oven at 180 degree for 5 minutes.
Bake the Pie for 15 minutes.
The crust will have a golden color. the sun pie is ready.
