Chicken filled buns, and sweet bun - Indian fusion recipe

WARNING : A very long and photo heavy post, if you are not into cooking and recipes, kindly avoid this post :) - Thank you.

Hello my cooking recipe followers, I am sharing the recipe of some buns these were requested by Sandy a long time ago, when I shared pictures of the buns on the card post.
Recipes take me awhile to post, as it takes a lot of time and proper planning, so I am kind of lazy to not post frequently.

But here it is:

Ingredients for buns:

3 cups all purpose/bread flour
1TBsp - active dry yeast
1/2 cup warm water for the yeast
1/2 cup milk
1 large egg
1 TBspn butter
2TBsp vegetable oil
1 tsp salt
2TBsp sugar

 a mixer - hand held/standing
big mixing bowl
baking sheet
baking tray/dish


1. Mix the yeast in the warm water and keep aside.
2. Prepare all the dry the ingredients in the bowl.


3. Add all the wet ingredients now, remember to beat the egg before you add.

  4. Use a mixer to make the dough.
  5. Your dough should be tacky, mix in the mixer for 5 mins and then transfer on counter top, flour it and knead using hands for another 3-4 mins. Greaset he same bowl and add the kneaded dough.
  6. Cover with a cling wrap and leave it in a warm place for an hour.
Now lets prepare the filling both chicken and sweet ones

 chicken filling Ingredients
  about 200gms minced chicken boneless
ginger garlic paste 1/2 tsp
red chili powder 1/4 tsp
turmeric - 1/4 tsp
salt to taste
coriander leaves optional
chopped onions 1 small
  1/2 TBsp oil

(For vegetable rolls, you need cauliflower, peas, carrots, cooked with the same spices in a similar fashion)

 1. heat oil in a pan and saute the onions till medium brown
2. add the chicken to the pan
  3. add all the spices, and mix well and cook till the chicken is done
it should be dry
Add coriander leaves  , your chicken filling is ready

 Sweet filling

preserved cherries/tutti frutti a handful 
condensed milk 1TBsp
sugar 2tsp
cardamom powder from 1 pod
dry/fresh grated coconut 1TBsp


Mix all ingredients and its ready

Now after an hour your dough should be risen well , and should look like this in the picture below

 Transfer it on a floured counter top, and use a scraper to cut the dough in equal parts, leaving out one big lump for the sweet bun, which is quite big.

  Tkae a spoon full of chicken filling nad fill in the dough and roll it
You can shape it the way you want
Arrange it on the baking dish lined with a baking sheet.

Now press down the big dough lump to flatten it up a bit and add all the sweet filling in it and roll it up nicely

Flatten it a bit after rolling to give a shape of a big bun.
You can make small buns too, just add a small amount of filling to the dough and roll into buns shapes.

Brush some butter after all the buns are shaped , this will prevent them from getting dry.

Cover with the cling wrap and leave it in a warm place for 45 minutes

Preheat the oven at 180 degree Celsius for 10 minutes and bake for 12- 14mins
brush with butter once out to keep the top moist
All ready - enjoy
Cut the big sweet bun like you would cut  a cake, and enjoy.
I hope you try it and let me know how it turned out. It is a well tried recipe and it had never gone wrong for me or people I had shared with.
