Making a pie with tuna and leek:

Step 1: Prepare the onion.

Leek and charlotte must be thoroughly washed, then finely chop them. In a stewpan over low heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil, after which we add chopped onion to it, which must be salt and pepper to taste. Constantly stirring, fry it several (2-3) minutes. In the end, the onion should be slightly fried, but still crispy.

Step 2: Prepare the dough for the pie.

To prepare the dough in a bowl, mix previously sifted wheat flour, the contents of 4 eggs, 100 milliliters of olive oil, baking powder, butter. Salt mass and mix it slowlyso that all the ingredients disperse well. When the mixture becomes homogeneous, add the fried onions and canned tuna, right with the butter. Mix the dough thoroughly again until the whole mass is homogeneous and well kneaded.

Step 3: We form and bake the product.

In a deep form, spread the dough and slightly distribute it with a spoon around the entire perimeter. Preheat the oven to a temperature of 210 degrees and send our product to the fryer for 40 minutes. The main thing is not to overdo the cake so that it does not dry out. Therefore, control the process and keep track of time.

Step 4: Serve the tuna and leek pie.

The finished cake has a very appetizing aroma and a delicate golden brown color. He needs to be allowed to cool completely immediately after the frypot, since the dish is eaten only in chilled form or barely warm. We cut it into portions and serve on a large plate, garnishing with greens or other beautifully chopped vegetables. With sour cream, such a pie is simply an overeating! Good appetite!

Recipe Tips:

- - In the first 15 minutes of baking the product, it is best not to open the oven door so as not to let in cold air. This will contribute to the splendor of the cake.

- - The readiness of the cake can be checked by a match. To do this, pierce the product with it. If there was nothing left on it, then the dough was baked. Otherwise, the baking time will have to be increased by another time.

- - When buying tuna in oil, pay attention to the shelf life of canned food and the integrity of the can. It should be without dents or holes. And after you open the tin can, immediately transfer its contents to another container or plate.
