Cooking Instructions

Preheat the oven to 200°C. 

Place dry ingredients in the bowl of a processor. Cut the cold butter into small cubes and add to bowl. Pulse until mixture becomes coarse crumbs and then tip into a medium-sized bowl.

Cut the cheese into small cubes and add bowl along with the jalapeno slices. Stir gently to combine.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the yogurt, milk, egg and chilli sauce and pour into flour mixture. Stir until dough comes together and knead gently a few turns.
