    Add all the ingredients for the shortcrust pastry to a bowl, blend very well, or mash it with a fork. If you feel your crust is too wet, add a tablespoon of cornstarch, if you feel that your crust is too dry, add a tablespoon of the water you’ve used to cook the chickpeas or water.

    Using a 25cm (10 inches) pie dish with a removable bottom, spread the quiche shortcrust pastry even all over the bottom of the pie dish as well as the sides.
