  1. In a large bowl, combine flour, egg, Nido Full Cream milk powder,vegetable oil and salt. Rub with your fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Gradually add water and mix to form soft dough.
  2. Divide the dough into 2 equal portions. Cover and keep aside for 1 hour.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl combine king fish cubes with lemon juice and allow to marinate in the fridge for 30 mins.
  4. Dissolve tamer hindi in 50 ml of hot water and run through a sieve to remove seeds and skins.
  5. Heat vegetable oil in a medium sauce pan, add the onions and garlic and saute until the onions are translucent. Add the tomatoes, chilli flakes and MAGGI®Chicken Bouillon, water and tamer hindi sauce and allow to simmer on medium heat for 15 mins or until tomatoes are soft.Stir in chopped coriander leaves and remove from heat.
  6. Turn out the first piece of dough onto a lightly floured work surface. Knead the dough and roll it out into a greased 30 cm round oven tray.
  7. Carefully spread half of the tomato sauce over the top, place pieces of raw fish over the sauce discarding the lemon juice marinate. Spoon over the remaining sauce and sprinkle over with pine seeds.
  8. Roll out the second piece of dough and place it over the pan to cover. Tightly press the edges and brush the top with the extra egg wash.
  9. Bake in a 170°C oven for 35-40 mins or until the top is golden and the fish is cooked.
