Winter pie with leeks, savory crust and potato topping


Winter time always bring the feeling of coziness. In Dubai, where I live is around 25 + degrees during winter, but good festive recipes are always welcome. I started the pie with the idea of covering it with the savory dough, during the cooking I changed my mind and decided to make it topped with potatoes instead. The result was quite successful I would say. I hope you will try it and like it.


– 250 g white flour

– 120 g slightly salted butter

– 1 tsp savory

– 1 egg

– 1 tsp salt

– 1 stalk leek

– 250 g mushrooms

– 250 g milk

– 1 tsp rice flour (or corn starch)

– salt and black pepper for seasoning

– 50 g butter

– 1 big potato


Boil the potato for few minutes. leave it almost cooked and cut it into nice slices. Make a dough from the flour, butter, egg-white, savory and salt. Leave it in the fridge for few minutes to cool. Chop the leeks and the mushrooms and saute them with the butter and the spices. Once they are cooked add the milk and the rice flour. Cook for a minute or two until the mixture become thick. Preheat the oven to gas 8. Roll out the dough in a small round baking tray and bake for 4-5 minutes. Take out from the oven and pour the leeks mixture. Top with the slices of potatoes and apply an egg yolk on it. Bake for additional 5-6 minutes.
