No Pie Pan Required/
Pie without Pie Pan
Hi Friends,
As in my earlier posts you can see i am trying recipes with China Grass like this.This and This And there is endless list of recipes which i wanted to try. So i combined these two things and this is the outcome. China Grass Pie. I never tried my hands on Pie. I ate it so many items but never dared to try it. I like its savory versions also. especially spinach and cheese Pie. I hope soon i will try that also. 
Now to today's recipe. My problem started with the PAN for Pie. We need removable pan base for this. I substituted that with a plate with high corners and covered it with Sling wrap. Now second problem was the crust. I am always afraid to make that. Then i went through so many blogs and found it very interesting that for non bake Pie we can use Biscuit crust. My eyes lit bright and an idea struck to my mind. Why not try a China Grass pie with biscuit crust. Woow. I said to myself. 
I bought biscuit to make crust and went ahead, it was first time so i was scared if it will not set then? With this dilemma i went ahead and made two lcolors filling. and put it in fridge. i took it out after 1 hours. It was looking so tempting. But as soon as i tried to remove sling it broke from few places. then i realised i need to set it fully before removing. It tasted awesome. 
My first attempt with China grass pie

Then i again tried it and this time left it overnight in the fridge. It  came out so perfect and delicious. i never thought that it will come out so well.  My heart was jumping with joy. I was successful in second attempt. Try it guys it can be center of attraction in a party specially if its for kids. I will highly recommend you to try it. You will love it.

  1. I will recommend you to use foil paper instead of sling film as it can handle hot things. you need to be very careful with sling film.
  2. You can use any biscuit for crust. Quantity depends upon the pan you are using. for big pan use more biscuits.
  3. Butter is essential to make crust. 
  4. Be careful while you will put butter and biscuit mix in the sling wrapped pan. as it will be bit hot and sling is so delicate to handle hot things. So cool it before tipping it in the pan.
  5. You can make this in any color, plain or even in mulitcolor. 
  6. Adding rose essence will enhance the flavor.
  7. Please let in the fridge for at least for 1-2 hours or preferably overnight to let it fully set.
  8. Be very carefull while removing sling from the crust. take support of some plate
