Filo Baskets

Filo sheet cups filled with peppers and corn.

Preparation time: 20 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes
Serves: 3-4
Recipe Ingredients:
1tbsp olive oil
1large red onion, chopped
1 large green pepper, deseeded and diced
1 red pepper, deseeded and chopped
 200g frozen Sweetcorn, thawed 200g
¼ cup Mayonnaise
4 Filo sheets
25g butter, melted
Note: to make Filo sheets, knead 1 cup flour with 1 tsp vinegar, 1/8 tsp salt and little water to make a stiff dough. Rest for 20 minutes and knead again for 2 minutes. Roll out the dough to paper thin sheets. Keep sheets covered with a damp cloth or cling wrap.
Recipe method:
Heat the oven to 180C.
To make the filling heat the oil in a large frying pan, add the prepared onion, peppers and stir-fry over a medium heat, for 5-6 minutes until just softened. Stir in the sweetcorn and cook again for 3-4 minutes over a low heat.
Remove from the heat and mix in the mayonnaise.
Cut the filo pastry into approx 12cm squares, trimming the edge of the sheets if needed. Take three squares, lightly brush with melted butter then place on top of each other at different angles. Place over a hole in the muffin tin and gently ease into the base so the points stick upright to make a basket effect. Repeat with the rest of the squares.
Place in the oven to cook for 6-8 minutes until golden brown and crisp. Spoon the vegetables into the pastry cases and serve warm.

Life always gives big opportunities in the form of small hints. The big move in Pankaj Bhadouria’s life came with a small step when she decided to leave her successful teaching career spanning over 16 years and enter India's 1st televised cookery reality show - MasterChef India on the leading GEC - Star Plus. And as they say, fortune favours the brave, Pankaj went on to become a worthy winner and with it India's first ever MasterChef. The comfort of the classroom gave way to the adulations, accolades and a host of achievements.
