Anyways lets talk about this recipe now....I love these kind of potato buns ..i use to eat lot in my college days....so thought of preparing it in my kitchen.......So here is my recipe....
For making dough:
150 gm Plain flour
1 tsp butter
7 gm instant active yeast(1 pack)
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp oil
60 ml warm milk
Potato-2 medium size(boiled, skinned and cubes(small small)
Peas 40 gm frozen/defrosted
Onion-1 small chopped
Green chilly 2 sliced
Turmeric powder 1/4 tsp
Coriander powder 1 tsp
Garam masala powder-1 tsp
Mustered 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste
cooking Oil 1 TBSP
Coriander leaves for garnishing(optional)
Butter 2tsp for brushing the dough balls
milk for brushing the dough balls.
How to prepare dough:
Add the salt and sugar to the warm milk in a big bowl,stir in yeast wait for 2 mins and then add oil and flour knead well.
After kneading for about 5 mins, add the melted butter(1 tsp) and knead again for 3-4 mins
The dough turns a little springy. At this stage,Cover with a damp cloth or a cling film and allow it to rise in a warm place for about 45 mins to an hour.
In the mean time prepare the filling.In a frying pan add oil and crackle some cumin and mustured in it.Add in onions and chopped green chilly and saute for 30 seconds.Throw in turmeric powder, coriander powder, garam masala powder and mix well.Season with salt.Now add peas and potatoes and mix till combined.garnish with coriander leaves and mix well.Let this cool down.Divide into equal balls and set this aside.
Once the dough has risen, punch it down and knead for 2-3 mins
Then make equal size balls (about 8-9 ball)Grease a pan with some oil,Flatten each ball and roll it out with your palm.Add a ball of the stuffing and then cover the dough from all sides and seal it it from all edges.Make it into a round shape and place on a foil lined baking sheet.
Repeat with all the dough balls and place the stuffed dough ball with the sealed side down in the greased pan.
Cover it with a cloth and allow to rise for another 30-45 mins
Keep the dough balls spaced apart, so that they don't stick to each other as they rise.
Pre-heat the oven to 180 C.
Now place the pan in a preheated oven.Before you pop them into the oven, brush the dough with some melted butter and milk.Bake for about 20 mins
Brush with butter again if you'd like and enjoy it with a hot cup of tea !
Chitra's Tips:If you want to use dry yeast, then add it to the warm milk with the sugar. Allow it to proof. Once the water gets bubbly, add to the flour.
