Method

  1. Pastry: Combine flour and salt in a food processor bowl with steel blade and blend for 8 seconds (or whisk together in a large bowl).
  2. Cut in butter by pulsing 8 times with food processor (or use a pastry cutter), until mixture resembles coarse meal. Do not over blend.
  3. Add water and mix just until dough comes together. Put dough in a plastic bag and chill 30 minutes.
  4. Roll on a lightly floured board and fit pastry into an 11-inch tart pan with removable bottom. Chill until ready to fill.

  6. Melt butter in a small sauté-pan over medium heat.
  7. Add curry and cayenne pepper; cook one minute.
  8. Sauté onion in curry butter until soft and most of the moisture has evaporated; set aside to cool.
  9. In a small bowl beat, eggs, milk and salt.
  10. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  11. Sprinkle cheese into chilled pastry shell. Spread onion mixture and asparagus over the cheese. Pour egg mixture over the top.
