Stuffed Masala Bun

Stuffed Masala Bun is a very tasty and interesting snack or tiffin item. It tastes best when served hot and can be accompanied with ketchup or spicy chutney or I can relish it as is. I got this recipe from here. Stuffing is a personal choice and you can change according to taste and preference.

Heat milk in a microwave for 15 – 30 seconds until the temperature measures 110 degrees F
Add yeast to it and allow it to rise in a closed container for 5 – 10 minutes. It will rise and will become frothy
Mix flour and salt and keep aside
Once the yeast is frothy add the olive oil and ¼ cup water to it
Make a well in the dough and pour the yeast mixture over it
Mix well to make a dough. Knead it until it becomes a dough which is soft.
Grease a bowl and transfer the dough to it and apply little oil over the dough and cover it with a plastic wrap and keep it to rise to double in size (about an hour)
In the meantime, prepare the stuffing
Cube the potatoes after peeling them and add 2 table spoon water and cook in the microwave for 8 minutes
Heat oil in a pan and add cashew and sauté until golden, add cumin seeds, cloves, cinnamon, bay leaf and cardamom
Add garlic and green chili and cook for 15 seconds and add then add onions and salt
Cook until the onions are clear and well done, add the turmeric powder, chili powder, asafetida and garam masala
Add the cooked potato and mix well
Remove from heat and add the lime juice and coriander leaves and allow it to cool
Put aluminum foil on a baking tray and lightly grease the aluminum foil with oil
After an hour, once the dough is raised to double in size, gently knead the dough and make 6 balls out of it and arrange them on the baking tray
Cover with a plastic wrap and let it rest for 15 minutes
In the meantime, once the stuffing has cooled, make 6 balls out of the stuffing and keep aside
Make the dough to flat and make a dent in between
Keep the rolled stuffing in it and pinch all the ends towards the center to seal the stuffing inside
Roll it to a smooth bun and keep them on the baking tray with the pinched and sealed side down
Brush the top with little olive oil and keep aside
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (Convection mode is 350 degrees F)
Keep the baking tray in the oven and bake for 17 to 20 minutes and midway through rotate the tray to ensure even browning
Once golden from all sides, remove from the oven (mine took 19 minutes) and allow it to cool for 2 minutes
Brush with little butter if desired and serve hot as is or with ketchup..
