Ingredients for Chutney Cheese & Jam Herbs Tart Platter

  • Mini Fillo phyllo Shells/Cups – 15 count box. I used Athens mini fillo cups easily available in the grocery store's frozen section in desserts. You may use home made mini shells as well or make shells out of ready to bake pie dough or samosa patti.
  • Green Coriander & Mint Chutney – 2 tbsp. You may use Pesto in case you do not want chutney
  • Cheddar Cheese – ¼ cup shredded
  • Pine nuts toasted - 1 tbsp, optional
  • Peach Preserve / Jam / Jelly – ¼ cup. You may use any jam of your choice like strawberry pineapple, fig or plum or apple or mango.
  • Rosemary fresh twig – 1. You may use herb of your choice like mint, sage, lavender, etc. that contrasts or matches with the flavor of your jam.

  • Water – 4 cups
  • Milk – ¼ cup
  • Brooke Bond Taj Mahal Tea Bags – 2 to 3 as strong or light as desired

Instructions for Chutney Cheese & Jam Herbs Tart Platter

  • Preheat the Oven at 375*F. Set a Baking tray on the kitchen counter.
  • Take a bowl and add chutney and shredded cheese to it. Mix lightly and set aside.
  • Take another bowl and add jam and finely chopped fresh rosemary or herb of your choice to it. Add 1 tbsp of warm water and dilute a little, if the preserve or jelly is tightly set. If it is already spreadable, then skip the water. Mix well and set aside.

  • Fill half of the shells with Chutney & Cheese filling. Fill the rest half with Jam & Herb filling.
