Sieve the flour and mix in the salt, sugar and baking powder.
Cut the butter into it till and mix to a crumbly mixture.
Add vinegar and egg or cold milk and mix into a stiff dough. Use cold water only if required.
Wrap in cling foil or cover and keep in a cool place to rest about 15 minutes.

For the filling:
In double boiler melt chocolate and butter until smooth then let cool slightly.
In separate bowl lightly beat egg yolks. Using a spatula fold in to chocolate mixture.
In large bowl beat the egg white till they form peaks.
Gradually add all the sugar until the whites turn glossy. Fold the chocolate mixture into the whites just until no white streaks remain.
