Coconut Stuffed Buns (Sweet)

I always loved the milk buns which we used to get it in India with tutty fruity or raisins on top.This reminded me of those buns.Kids really enjoyed the filling inside;the filling was a surprise for them.I was really happy that they turned out so good puffed up and delicious.I gained the confidence only after succesfully trying out the Dilkush recipe,which I had posted earlier but these were more softer than those.Enjoy making these at home,you will surely love it.Next time,I would love to try the savory version of this :-)

all purpose flour 2 cups+ 1/2 cup
sugar 1/4 cup
active dry yeast 1 tbsp(3 tsp)
egg yolk 1(reserve egg white)
egg white for glaze
warm water 3tbsp
leuk warm milk 1/2 cup
butter 2 tbsp(1/4 cup melted)
oil 1/4 cup
salt to taste
sesame seeds to garnish

for filling
sweetened coconut flakes 1 1/2 cup
sugar 3tbsp
coconut milk /whole milk 2tbsp
milk powder 2tbsp
cardamom powder 1/2tsp
raisins 2tbsp

-Melt the butter ,keep aside.Boil the milk ,keep aside.Beat the egg yolk lightly.
-Add the yeast in warm water and add a tbsp of sugar in it.Let it stand for 10 minutes till frothing appears.
-Sift the flour ,add salt ,sugar.Mix well.
-Add the yeast mixture and keep mixing.Add the milk when leuk warm to the flour.
-Add the melted butter.Add the egg yolk and remaining oil.
-Add the reserved half cup of flour if sticky.Knead with hands for 10 minutes to form a smooth dough.
-Cover the bowl and keep to rise for 1 hour or doubles in volume.
-After 1 hour,punch down the air and knead again.Divide the dough into 7 equal balls.
-Cover and leave again for 30-45minutes.
-In the mean time,prepare the filling by heating a non stick pan.Add the milk powder to a tbsp of warm water and add.Add all the filling ingredients,mix well and keep stirring till the water content dries up a bit and forms sticky mixture.Put off the flame and let it cool.
-After cooling,make 7 equal portions/balls of the filling.Keep aside.
-Pre heat oven to 350 degrees F and line a tray with cooking spray.

-Punch down the air again from each made ball and make a disc shape in your palm.Place the filling ball and seal it completely.Place the sealed side down on the baking tray.
-Brush the top with the reserved egg white and sprinkle a few sesame seeds.
-Repeat the same for all other 6 balls and place on the baking tray.
-Wait for 20 minutes,let it double in size again .
-Place it in the oven and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.(I got it ready at 21minutes)
-Cool on wire rack and serve with tea!!
PS:You can brush the top with melted butter to keep the crust soft & golden immediately after removing from oven.

* You can add 1/3 cup of condensed milk instead of sugar,coconut milk and milk powder to make the filling.
* If you are using cardamom pods,use 4 of them and powder it along with little sugar.It powders easily.
* You can make a savory version with any veggie filling keeping the dough same.

Happy weekend to all :-)
