Recipe is written to fit a 20cm flan pan. Measurements in italics are for a 26cm pan.

Heat oven to 165ºC.


  1. Blend butter and water into flour.
  2. Roll into a ball and place in the refrigerator for 5 minutes
  3. Roll out and line a 20cm flan pan (26 pan)

(JJ note: Add salt, paprika and some baking powder. Rub the butter into the flour and add water gradually until the mixture clings together in a ball. Or to cheat, melt the butter and add to flour, mix well then add water)


  1. Blend together cheese, sour cream/yoghurt, garlic, curry and salt
  2. Mix with rice and silver beet/spinach
  3. Pour filling into pastry and sprinkle with breadcrumbs and paprika
  4. Slice tomato over top and bake for 45 minutes

(JJ note: If mixture needs loosening, use milk. Can use white rice instead of brown. The suggestion of 1/2 teaspoon of curry powder is a bit mingy. JJ buys English spinach but baby spinach is okay too)
