Tart shells filled with whipped cream and mixed fruits


  • Refined flour (maida) 200 gms

  • Whipped cream 100 gms
  • Kiwi, chopped 1
  • Strawberries, chopped 4 to 5
  • Green grapes, halved 1 cup
  • Orange, peeled, segments separated and halved 1


  • Take refined flour in a mixing bowl, add butter and rub in with your fingertips till the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Add a little chilled water and gather into a dough taking care not to knead it. Wrap the dough in cling film and keep it in the refrigerator for 20-25 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 180º C.
  • Take the dough out of the refrigerator. Dust some dry flour on the worktop, place the dough on it and roll it out as thinly as possible into a rectangle sheet.
  • Cut the dough into roundels with a cookie cutter, put the roundels into tart moulds and press lightly. Dork with a fork so that the dough doesn’t rise while baking.
  • Keep the tart moulds in the oven and blind bake them for 10-12 minutes or till they turn a light golden.
  • Take them out of the oven. Arrange them on a serving plate and let them cool down.
  • Take whipped cream in a piping bag and pipe the cream into the tart shells. Top them with chopped fruits and serve.
