Tuna Fish Pie Recipe

This is my first attempt at baking a pie. Actually, I am quite inexperience when it comes to baking pastries and cake but the pie turned out quite nice. My kids ate all the pie in one sitting. My daughter loves the flaky pastry, she ate all of it but she gave all her tuna fish to her brother! PIE PASTRY Flour, 5 cups Butter, 170gms Salt to taste A little sugar Iced cold water Mix the flour, salt and water with the butter until the mixture turn ‘granules’ like. Add iced cold water slowly to the pastry and let it rest in the fridge for 30 minutes. PIE FILLINGS Tuna fish, 1 can Onions, 2 pcs, chopped finely Chillies, (optional) 2 pcs, cut into slices Heat up nonstick wok and add 3 table spoons of oil. Then sautéed the onions until fragrant. Add in chillies and take out the fillings from the wok, to cool it down. Take half of the dough and make it into a round ball. Use a rolling pin to shape it to the size of your round baking tray. Put the dough it to the baking tray and then add the precooked pie fillings on top of it. Take the rest of the dough and roll it to the shape of the baking tray. Put it on top of the tuna fillings on the baking tray and seal the sides of the bottom and top dough together. Make two or three cuts on the top pastry to let the steam out when the pie is in the hot oven. Bake in a preheated oven at 180 Deg C for 20 minutes.
