  1. Put 1 tbsp of the melted butter in a small pan over a low heat. Add the onion and leave to cook for five minutes, until soft. Set aside to cool a little.
  2. Tip all the dry ingredients into a large bowl. Stir together the yogurt, milk and eggs and then mix together with the dry ingredients until smooth.
  3. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Add the chilli to the mixture along with most of the cheese, the cooked onions and all of the melted butter. Stir until well combined.

  5. Cook in the preheated oven for 25 minutes. Then sprinkle over the leftover cheese and return to the oven for 5-10 minutes until golden and cooked through. Leave in the tin for a couple of minutes, then turn out, cut into triangles and serve warm.
