Know your Blogger friend - Presenting Kamalika of Silence Sings and one of her recipes !

We at KFB are back with a new event "Know your blogger friend" and it is going to be a hit I know. Also so much fun as we will be picking up one blogger from Kolkata each week and try and recreate one of their recipes and talk about them. This week the featured blogger is Kamalika Chakraborty of the beautiful blog Silence Sings with Kamalika C

To talk about her I think I will have to talk a lot. Let me begin by telling you all that she is the founder member of the group Kolkata Food Bloggers - a group that brings all the bloggers residing in Kolkata together. I got to know Kamalika thorough a well known foodies group on FB...didn't know her personally then but would gape at her food pictures whenever she would post something there. Then by chance one day I started chatting with another blogger and she told me about KFB and added me to it. I am so thankful to her for doing that. Ok now coming back to the star today - Kamalika is a wonderful woman - super creative, organised,independent, emotional and above all very helpful. Her blog Silence Sings with Kamalika C is an example of sheer brilliance. Her photographs are extremely stylish and totally does justice to the super easy and yummy recipes that she shares. Photography is her another passion and she can always capture the essence of the moment. She is also an entrepreneur and has a home bakery from where she retails her goodies! I have found a great friend in her and she helps me with her valuable suggestions to improve my blog as well.  I think I can go on and on...but I will now jump to one of her recipes that I have recreated today. 

Few days back she shared a very easy recipe of Chicken Quiche - today being veg day for us just replaced minced chicken with sweet corn - Corn Cheese Quiche.

You can find the original recipe here



For the quiche :

Flour - 1 cup

Butter - 1 tbsp

Salt - 1 tsp

Egg - 1 small - slightly beaten

Water - to make the dough


In a bowl combine the flour , salt and the butter. Add the egg and enough water to make it into a smooth soft dough.Keep this aside.

For the filling:

Egg - 1 no - lightly beaten

Cheddar cheese - 1 cup grated

Corn kernels - half cup

Onion - 1 small finely chopped

Mayonnaise - 1 tbsp

Sweet chilli sauce - 1 tsp

Crushed pepper - 1 tsp

Salt - a pinch

Butter - 1 tsp


In a pan add the butter  and lightly saute the onions and the corn kernels. Add crushed pepper and salt and keep aside.

In a bowl take the beaten egg and add half of the grated cheese. Add the onion corn mixture , mayonnaise and sweet chilli sauce and mix well. 

Now we have to assemble the quiche. Grease a muffin pan nicely.

Make little balls of the dough and roll it out into round puris . Not too thin , with medium thickness.

Take each base and cover the muffin pan according to the size.

Now add a tbsp of the filling to each cup.

Bake the quiches in a pre heated oven for 20 mins at 200 deg C. Once they start to get golden brown on the sides - take them out ...sprinkle the remaining cheese on top and bake for another 3 mins. Serve hot with ketchup.

 I would like to thank Kamalika for sharing such a fabulous recipe with her readers. This one is going to feature in all my tea - parties from now on. It is so easy to make and tastes just divine.
