Stuffed Bun

3 more to go in this baking marathon. Come to think of it, I am posting all savoury items on the last week of the baking marathon. 

I had some dough leftover after making the dominoes style garlic bread. I was thinking for a while what to do with it since the dough was not enough to make another bread. I came up with this idea of stuffed bun.

The stuffing I used contains meat pieces. Vegetarians can probably replace this with potatoes or paneer. We enjoyed this with plain tomato ketchup.


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

For the stuffing

Onion - 50 grams (finely chopped)
*Meat pieces - 40 grams (chicken or mutton)
Pepper powder - 1 tsp
salt - to taste
Garam masala powder - 1/2 tsp
chilly powder - 1/4 tsp

* I had marinated the meat pieces earlier with salt, turmeric powder and ginger garlic paste.


  • Warm the milk in microwave for around a minute or until its temperature reaches 115 to 120 degrees F
  • Add sugar, yeast and honey 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 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, in a kadai add one teaspoon of oil and fry the onions.
  • microwave the meat pieces for 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and mince the meat either in a mixer or with hand
  • add the minced meat pieces to the fried onions, mix well.
  • add all the powders and mix well and dry fry the meat mixture. Let there be no warer.
  • remove from heat and cool
  • after about an hour take the dough, punch it to remove the air.
  • make 4 pieces of the dough.
  • take one portion, make it slightly fat. Place 2 tsp of filling into it. Close it from all the ends and roll it into a bun using the palm of your hands.
  • repeat with the other 3 portions.
  • bake at 180 degree celsius for about 30 minutes
  • cool and serve
