Thanks for all your valuable comments.. coming back to my post stuffed buns, oh miss the Iyengar bakeries, the fresh smell of baking bread and the varieties that they have now. Here is one such:
Whole wheat flour -- 1/2 cup
All Purpose flour -- 1 cup
Dry Yeast -- 1 tbsp
Salt -- 1 1/2 tsp
Sugar -- 1 tsp
Lukewarm Milk -- 1/4 cup
Luke warm Water -- 1/4 cup
Oil -- 1tsp
For the Filling :
Paneer -- 1/2 cup ( chopped into small cubes)(Or any mixed veggies)
Onion -- 4tbsp finely chopped
Cilantro -- 1tbsp finely chopped
Red chillie powder -- 1 tsp (or according to taste)
Garam masala -- 1tsp
Tomato -- 3tbsp chopped finely
Salt to taste
Oil -- 1tsp
For the stuffing:
- Heat oil in a heavy bottom pan
- Add the onions and fry till soft
- Now add the tomatoes salt and fry till soft
- Add all the spice powders and paneer cubes
- Fry till all the water is absorbed and the stuffing looks dry.
- Add cilantro and keep aside
For the dough :
- Mix water and milk.
- Add sugar and mix till sugar dissolves
- Sprinkle the yeast on top and allow it to foam (5 to 7 mins)
- Mix the flours and salt together
- Take a large bowl and add the flour and yeast mixture
- Knead to form a smooth dough.
- Apply oil on top and cover and set aside in a warm place till it doubles in volume. ( about 40 mins)
- Punch the dough slowly to release all the excess air.
- Pinch the dough into small balls. The above proportion would yield 7 to 8 small balls
- Roll the dough into small oval shape discs or small circular discs and put a spoon of the paneer stuffing and shape them into small oval shape/ round shape.
- Line them on a baking tray and keep it in a warm place. Allow to double in volume (another 40 mins)
- Preheat oven to 400 F
- Baking for 8 to 10 min till golden brown in colour.
