Whole Wheat Mango Pie Crust
For this recipe, I have used whole wheat flour and cold butter. Cut the butter into small cubes so that it blends easily in the flour. Use cold butter and that means butter from the refrigerator, not from the freezer.
To make the pie crust let’s combine flour, salt, and butter in a mixing bowl. Using fingertips mix butter into the flour until it looks like bread crumb. In case you are using salted butter then skip adding salt.
Add vinegar and start adding ice cold water. Add 1 tablespoon of water at a time. Depending on the quality of flour you will use the requirement of water could be different. I have used 4tbs water in total however, you can adjust the amount accordingly.
The dough shouldn’t be sticky and wet. To check if you need to add more water or not, take some portion of dough and press between your palms. If it holds the shape then it’s done, stop adding water further.
Now bind the dough and cover it in cling wrap and refrigerate it for 45 min.
Mango Pie Filling
On Medium flame cook mangoes in a pan for a minute. Add salt and cook for 10 more minutes. When water evaporates, add brown sugar and cook for another 2 min. Switch off the flame and transfer the filling into a bowl. Keep the bowl in the refrigerator.
How much sugar should you add? Well, it depends on your taste buds. Before you add sugar, taste the mangoes. The mangoes I had were sweet and I added 2 tablespoon sugar and it was sufficient for me. You can increase the amount of sugar based on your liking and can go up to ¼ cup sugar.
Shaping and Baking the Mango Pie
Before you begin, keep your oven for preheating at 180 °C.
Now take the dough out from the refrigerator and divide it into two parts. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough into a 12” circular sheet with a thickness of 1/8 inches.
Gently lift the rolled dough and transfer it to pie mold. Using fingers, press the dough down so that it lines the sides and bottom of the mold. Scrap the extra dough using a knife.
Take the mango pie filling out of the refrigerator and mix cornflour into it. Now, fill the shaped pie dough with mango pie filling. Take the other portion of the dough. Roll it and use it to cover the mango filling by making a pattern of your choice.
To keep the moisture intact during baking, brush the mango pie with milk. Now, bake it in a preheated oven at 180 °C for 50 minutes. When baked, take the pie out. Demould it after 10 minutes. Cool it at room temperature. Slice and serve.
