  2. Add in the egg yolk and the egg white to this and beat well. Add in the flour and mix well and form a dough.The dough should not be too dry or too oily.
  3. Wrap the dough well using cling wrap and place in the fridge for 15 minutes. Take the dough out and make equal sized balls out of it
  4. Grease a muffin tray well with butter. Take one dough ball and keep in one muffin hole and slowly press the dough to all sides such that it forms a cup shape in the muffin holes. Refrigerate the muffin tray for 20 minutes.
  5. Making the filling: Add sugar to hot water and mix well until sugar is all dissolved and let it cool.
  6. Beat eggs with milk, vanilla essence and salt. Add in the sugar water to this and mix well. Strain this egg mixture to remove all/any lumps.
  7. Pour the strained mixture into the prepared tart shells. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Bake tarts for 25 minutes or until done. Cool and serve the delicious tarts.
