Stuffed bread roll

This baking marathon has really proved fruitful to me. I have started inventing recipes. Thanks to Valli.

I often make rolls from chapathis which we take with us during our travel. Its easier to eat without making our hands dirty and also easier to pack - just wrap it in a foil. I tried the same in a bread and the result was awesome. Do try this. This would be a great kids lunchbox idea or a very good start for a picnic.

All Purpose Flour - 1 1/3 cups
Instant Yeast - 1 packet (2 1/4 tea spoon)
Milk - 150 ml + to brush on top
Italian Seasoning - 1 tea spoon + 1 tea spoon + 1/2 tea spoon
Milk Powder - 2 table spoons (optional)
Sugar - 1 tea spoon
Salt - 1/2 tea spoon + 1/2 tea spoon

For the filling:
Capsicum - 1/2 cup (chopped)
Onion - 1 cup (1 inch pieces)
Tomatoes - 1/4 cup (sliced)
Chillies - 1 tbsp (chopped)
Garlic - 5 cloves  (adjust to taste)
Chili Flakes - 1/2 tea spoon (adjust to taste)
Olive Oil - 2 table spoons + 2 tea spoon
tomato sauce - 1 tbsp

  • Warm the milk in microwave for around a minute or until its temperature reaches 115 to 120 degrees F
  • Add sugar, yeast to the milk and mix well and cover with a lid and set aside for 10 minutes or until double in volume and frothy
  • In a mixing bowl, add flour, milk powder, 1 tea spoon Italian Seasoning, chili flakes and mix well
  • Once the yeast mixture is frothy and bubbly, add salt, 2 table spoons olive oil, 5 cloves of minced garlic and mix well
  • Add the yeast solution to the dry ingredients slowly and run the mixer on low speed until all combined and once a ball is formed, allow it to knead for around 8 to 10 minutes until it is smooth and soft.
  • Grease a big bowl and place the dough covered for an hour or until doubled
  • Now to prepare the filling, saute the onions, chillies, garlic in olive oil. After about 5 minutes add the capsicum and tomatoes and seasoning with little salt. Saute well until the veggies are cooked and the water evaporates. Lastly add the tomato sauce and chilly flakes and mix well.

  • Once the dough is doubled, grease a round pan with a spoon of olive oil. You need to grease only a semi circle and not the entire pan.
  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C.
  • Using a rolling pin spread the dough into a big rectangle or an oval shape.
  • Spread the filling uniformly on the rolled dough.
  • Now fold the dough from a shorter side and make it into a roll and seal the edges.

  • Brush with milk and sprinkle very little Italian Seasoning on top
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes or until golden on top.
  • Remove to a cutting board and cut in the same places where we scored earlier. Enjoy!!!
