Hi Joanna,

In the beginning, Use PULSE a couple of times till it resembles breadcrumbs then pour in the egg mixture and pulse till it binds into a dough.

Ok thanks!

Hi aunty yo,

what other methods can i use instead of food processor? can i use hands to do that? i dont have a food processor.

Hi Trish,

yes you can use your hands to knead into a dough. Mix all the dry ingredients together into a bowl, rub in butter till it resembles breadcrumbs then add in liquid and mix into a pliable dough.

Hi aunty,

If I want to make a normal original flavour coconut tart, can I just leave out the pandan juice & paste? Do I need to add in anything else such as vanilla essence to substitute the pandan juice & paste?

Aunty Yochana said...

Hi u.duckling,

O.k. you can omit the pandan juice / paste and sub with vanilla essence.
