To make the crust: Mix together the All-Purpose Flour (1 1/2 cup), Granulated Sugar (1/2 teaspoon), Salt (1/2 teaspoon), and Ajwain Seeds (1 tablespoon) in a large mixing bowl. Add the diced, chilled butter and cut-in with a pastry blender or your fingers until it forms coarse crumbs the size of peas.

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the Unsalted Butter (1/4 cup) and melt. Throw in the onion and garlic and sauté for about 5 minutes until translucent and soft.
