Last Updated: Oct 20, 2011, 09:22 AM IST

This dish goes well with stewed chicken, but can also be enjoyed on its own.


1 package macaroni (225 grams / 8 oz.)
2 eggs
2 cups grated cheese
1½ cups evaporated milk
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 carrot, grated
1 tsp. salt
¼ tsp. white pepper
1 teaspoon prepared yellow mustard
a pinch of unsalted butter


Boil macaroni in salted water until tender; drain.

Beat eggs until fluffy.

Combine macaroni, eggs, cheese, milk, onion, carrot, salt, white pepper, mustard and butter.

Pour into a greased baking dish and sprinkle shredded cheese and bread crumbs or panko bread crumbs on top of macaroni to cover it evenly.

Bake at 175°C (350°F) until firm (approx. 30 minutes). A fork or metal skewer should come out dry when you press it all the way through the pie.
