Garam Masala Minced Beef and Pea Quiche

This simple, hearty savoury tart is perfect for simple weeknight dinners or an easy meal that wows guests. The true Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese speaks for itself, and mixed with eggs and heavy cream makes the perfect base for the minced beef and green pea filling. You can stick to the basic quiche crust, or flavour it with a bit of turmeric and black pepper for the colour, health and fun. Serve the quiche with a simple salad and a glass of medium-body red wine, such as Cotes du Rhon. Adding garam masala to the ground beef has brought out the best flavour of the meat and add a little sweet hint to it. If you don't have the spice blend, use curry powder instead.

Turmeric CrustFilling
  • 225 g Refined spelt flour
  • 1/2 tsp Turmeric powder
  • A large pinch of black pepper powder
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 130 g Butter, diced
  • 2 Egg yolks
  • 1 tbsp Ice cold water
  • 200 g Ground beef
  • 1 Garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tsp Garam masala
  • 120 g Green peas, fresh or frozen (thawed)
  • 2 Medium eggs
  • 180 g Heavy cream
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 50 g Parmigiano-Reggiano, grated
  • 2 tbsp Fresh flat parsley, chopped
  1. To make shortcrust pastry, place flour, turmeric powder, black pepper and butter in a food processor. Process until fine crumbs form. Add egg yolks and water. Process until dough just comes together. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead until smooth. Shape into a disc. Wrap in plastic wrap. Place in fridge for an hour to rest.
  2. Preheat oven to 200C/400F. Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface to a 3mm-thick disc. Line a 23cm fluted tart tin with the pastry, trimming any excess. Prick the base all over with a fork, then chill for 15 minutes.
  3. Line with baking paper, fill with pastry weights or beans or rice, then blind bake for 12 minutes. Remove the baking paper and weights (or beans/rice), then return to the oven for 5-6 minutes until golden.
  4. Meanwhile brown the ground beef and minced garlic in a skillet over medium heat, stirring to break up the meat. This should take about 5-8 minutes. Remove from the heat. Drain off any excess fat. Stir in garam masala and green peas.
  5. In a medium bowl, stir together the eggs, cream, and mustard. Season. Stir in grated Parmigiano-Reggiano, and chopped parsley.
  6. Scatter the browned ground beef and peas over the base of the tart, then pour over the egg mixture. Bake for 25-30 minutes until just set.

I like quiche but hubby does not. Your quiche looks beautiful and delicious.

Neat recipe. We've been eating a lot of peas lately (always do at this time of the year -- even though we mostly use frozen since the local fresh ones are so hard to find). This is perfect for us. Thanks!

I love the idea of adding peas to a quiche. It makes it look so pretty. I've be seeing a lot of recipes using peas this week. I know in my area the peas are coming into season.
