Whole wheat Potato Bun

This my another baking adventure with bread machine.....
The bun,,which we always love to eat out side..thought of preparing it at home.....I have prepared the dough by hand this time(not used the machine)...but I am not very happy with the buns,,because it has not turned very the bun was not soft....Next time i need to change the method I feel...If any of you want to suggest on this are most welcome..but not adding eggs please..

To make bun:
whole Wheat 1 1/4cup
All Purpose flour 1/4 cup
Fast action yeast 1TBSP
salt 1/2 tsp
Warm milk 3/4 cup+3-4TBSP for brushing
Sugar 2tsp
Oil 2-3tsp

For Stuffing:
Potato 2 medium sized
green chilly 2finely chopped
Onion 1 big
Cooking oil 2TBSP
Urad lentil 1tsp
mustered 1/2tsp
turmeric 1/2tsp
curry leaves 5-6
salt to taste
garam masala 2tsp
chilly powder 1/2tsp(optional)
lemon juice 1tsp

How to make stuffing:

Mash the potato roughly in to lumps with hand or cut in to 1/2" cubes.Heat the oil in a pan add urad lentil,fry 2mins,then add mustered once it start splutters add green chilly and curry leaves,after 2mins add turmeric and saute,then add onion,stir until onion turns brownish,then add mashed potato and mix well.Finally add salt,chilly powder,lemon juice and garam masala powder and mix properly.turn of the heat after 2mins...the stuffing is ready.

How to make dough:

Make big lemon sized balls, roll it on in to puri size and keep the stuffing in the center of the circle cover it from the edges.

make all the stuffing and brush with milk..

Keep the balls in the bread machine pan and use extra bake function(which is set for 1 hour 10mins)......with in 30-35mins the buns will be ready....

stop the machine and take out the bread...and keep next round(as in bread machine we can make few buns at a need to do 2-3 round)......The spicy potato bun is ready to serve..

Once you take out from the pan..keep aside to cool down for 5mins(if you want brush it with butter)...then can have it with tea..

Serve the hot bun with tomato sauce,,,,,
