Stuffed Buns (Savory filling & Nutella filling)

Buns had always been a fascination to bake,I always love the golden flaky top.These buns are so soft like pillows and very delicious too.Believe me,I was always reluctant about baking buns until earlier I prepared the stuffed buns(sweet version) with coconut filling but this time I badly wanted to eat the buns with savory filling.Kids as always love sweet things,so I made two of them scooped with nutella,they just loved that surprise inside the buns.I almost used the same dough for the buns and just made changes in the filling.Enjoy baking these yummy soft buns,we really loved it :-)

for buns
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 savory filling
potato 2 medium boiled & mashed
carrot 1 chopped small
peas(frozen) 1/3 cup
onion 1 chopped small
ginger-garlic paste 1 1/2 tsp
chilly powder 1/2 tsp
turmeric powder 1/3 tsp
cilantro leaves 3-4 sprigs chopped
oil 2 -3 tsp

For dough
-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.

Preparing the filling-
-Wash and peel the carrots & potatoes.Cut small cubes and place the carrots,microwave in a microwave safe bowl with enough water and salt for 5 mins.Then,add the potatoes in it ,check water if required.Microwave for 10 -12 mins on high until its cooked well.
-Drain the water & mash the potato completely and carrots partially.Keep aside.
-Heat oil in a pan and saute onions till translucent.Add the ginger -garlic paste and saute till raw smell disappears.
-Add the thawed peas and saute.
-Add in the spices and toss it well.Add in the mashed carrots and potatoes.Toss the masala,add in the cilantro leaves .Put off flame .Let it cool.

Preparing Buns-
-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 about 2tsp of filling and seal it completely.Place the sealed side down on the baking tray.(for detailed pics,watch here)
-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 for 5 mins and serve with tea!!
PS:You can brush the top with melted butter to keep the crust soft & golden immediately after removing from oven.
Servings ~ 7 buns

* I used nutella for 2 of my buns as I wasn't sure if kids will love this filling.If you are using nutella ,place about 2 tsp of nutella in the center of the disc and seal completely.
* You can double the ingredients and make more buns.
* If you want to change the filling,you can do that with your desired filling.

Tried these yday. Have a doubt- the butter amount is 2 tbsp OR 1/4 c melted?? I measured the 1/4c melted as that was easier to do than 2 tbsp. Then there is also oil - 1/4 cup?? Dont know if I got something wrong but the oil kept oozing out of the dough each time I left it to rise. So it was VERY VERY oily. Apart from that it was good in terms of texture and taste although it could have been lighter (probably the oil content). So please clarify. Incidentally would be fantastic if people commented on the recipe rather than the picture. Not your fault I guess, as the pics are really terrific!

Julie said... Best Blogger Tips

@Rashmi Sorry about the delay in replying..Thanx for trying out the recipe and the melted butter is mentioned is correct,you can use softened butter next time if you felt it oily,but i haven't come across that.
