Stuffed Bun

Avi used to have these buns for his breakfast when he was bachelor. I tried them recently in local bakery shop  when went to drop my son to his play school and liked it a lot. In initial days of blogging I read somewhere that from pizza dough we can make buns, so after tasting stuffed bun I thought to give it a try and was really happy with the outcome!!!

  • Add the mashed potato and and coriander leaves fry till everything mixes well. Remove from heat and keep aside.
For the bun:

  • After an hour, the dough we prepared would have doubled in size. Take it  and gently knead and make  equal sized balls.
  • Take a baking tray and  grease with oil and arrange the rolled balls with enough spacing between them.
  • Divide/roll the stuffing into equal size ball. Make sure that the stuffing should be around half the size of the  rolled buns dough.
  • Take each bun and make a dent in the center.

  • Keep the rolled stuffing inside and pinch all the end towards center to cover the stuffing.
  • Roll in to smooth bun. Repeat for every bun.
  • Arrange them in the baking tray. Keep the pinched joined side down.Brush them well with oil.
  • Preheat the oven for 190°C. Bake for 18-20 mins or until the top crust turns golden brown in color.  
  • Serve hot with evening tea/coffee.

  • The dough should not be sticky; if so then add in a little more flour.
