Since Millets are gluten-free, to make a flatbread/ base we need to cook/boil the flour to make it bind well. Boil in 1:1 proportion. 2 cups Jowar flour and 2 cups water. Spice and season the flour as per taste preference. For this base, I seasoned it with Fennel powder, garlic, salt, and red chili powder.
To provide for the Protein in the pie, instead of Mutton or Chicken, I have added Lentils. In this Pumpkin Pie savory, I added Lobhia/Black-eyed Peas. Its flavor really combined well with pumpkin.
You can make a Pie crust-free or with crust. Crust-free pies like: Veg-Lentil- Brinjal Pie and Veg -Lentil- Shepherds Pie.
