    I made these - they are delicious. Its very easy and steps are easy to follow.
    Plucking the Methi leaves is a bit of a pain, but the results are 100 % worth it. TEnded up not having enough Methi so added some frozen spinach to the mix which turned out absolutely delicious.
    I got six Tartlets and leftover filling (which is now frozen) out of the recipe.
    The Pastry recipe is also an absolute Keeper ! Crunchy, buttery gorgeousness !
