How to make it

  • first halve the passion fruit,scoop out the pulp into a saucepan and add the orange juice
  • bring to the boil and boil until reduced by half
  • pass through a sieve into a jug rubbing the mix with the back of a spoon to get all the juice out of the passion fruit seeds
  • there should be about 250ml of mix,set aside to cool
  • roll out the pastry on a floured surface as thinley as possable(about 3mm)
  • carfully put the pastry in a21-22cm flan tin with a removable base(about 2cm deep)
  • press the pastry all round and leave about 1cm overhanging
  • prick the base with a fork the line with greasproof paper and baking beans and leave to rest in a fridge for 20 mins meanwhile pre-heat the oven to 200c/gas 6
  • stand the flan tin on a baking sheet and bake blind for 15 mins,remove the paper and beans and return to the oven for another 5 mins till the base is golden and crisp
  • trim the overhanging pastry and set aside to cool and lower the oven to 150
  • meanwhile break up the chocolate and melt in a small heatproof bowl over simmerin water
