Veg Stuffed Buns

A little excited to present this post coz this is my first attempt at making/baking bread. Well, can't say exactly that it's my FIRST, should rather say my first SUCCESSFUL attempt. I was actually browsing the net for a doughnut recipe and somehow ended up with bread recipes. I liked one in particular - stuffed cheesy buns, and thought of giving it a try with some veggies too. Here's what I did....


For the bun -

Whole wheat flour - 1 cup
All purpose flour - 1/2 cup
Yeast - 1 tbsp
Warm water - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 1 tbsp
Salt - 3/4 tsp
Milk - 1/2 cup
Butter - 2 tbsp
Oil - 1 tbsp
Baking soda - a pinch (optional)

For the filling -

Onion - 1 - finely chopped
Carrot - 1 small - grated
Cabbage - chopped - 1/2 cup
Cheese - as required
Salt - to taste
Pepper powder - 1/2 tsp
Oil - 1 tbsp


Put yeast in warm water along with sugar and salt, mix and keep aside for fermentation. Into a mixing bowl put both the flours and a pinch baking soda (my previous attempts didn't yield any risen dough, so I added this). Pour milk, melted butter and the fermented yeast mixture into the mixing bowl and knead it into a soft dough. Add little flour if the dough is too sticky. Apply little oil on the outer surface of the dough and keep it covered. Keep aside for at least an hour or till the dough has risen to double its size. In the meantime prepare the filling. Put all the ingredients mentioned above for the filling in a microwave safe bowl and microwave HIGH for 3 mins. You can also saute the same in little oil. 

After the dough has risen, knead it one more time and divide it into 6 equal balls. Flatten a ball a little with your hand and place a tbsp of the filling inside along with some cheese. Close it slowly and shape the ball into a small bun. Repeat procedure with the rest of the balls and place it in a baking tray.  Cover it with a damp cloth and let it sit for another hour. Apply little oil or butter on top of these buns. Bake them for about 10 - 15 mins. When they are warm enough, take a bite....
