For baskets / tarts :
1 ½ cups flour
4 tbsp ghee
½ cup milk
salt to taste

For filling :
200 gm button mushroom
200 gm spinach
1 tbsp flour
3 tbsp milk
2 tbsp cheese (grated)
1 tbsp pepper
3 tbsp butter
salt to taste

Method :
For making filling :
Chop the spinach and the mushrooms into small pieces. Heat the butter and add the flour and the milk and stir continuously taking care that no lumps form. Mix in the chopped vegetables, salt, pepper and cheese and cook on a medium heat for 5 minutes.

For making tarts :
Kneed all the ingredients to a soft dough, adding a little more milk, if required. Divide into 7-8 portions and shape into round baskets or use a bowl or a mould to give the tarts any shape you like.
Bake in an oven at about 150ºC for 10 minutes and then remove the tarts or baskets one at a time from the oven with the help of mittens. Fill each of the baskets with a portion of the prepared mushroom spinach mixture and bake once again, reducing the temperature of the oven a little. Bake for 5-7 minutes or until the baskets are light brown in colour.
