Sesame Stuffed Buns with Chicken


For the Bun:
  • Dry yeast-1 tbsp
  • Warm water-2tbsp
  • Milk-1/2 cup
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil-1/2 cup
  • All purpose flour-2 cups + 1 cup
  • Sugar-1/4 cup
  • Egg-1, beaten
  • Egg white-1,for egg wash
  • White sesame seeds for sprinkling

For the filling:
  • Boneless chicken-100gm, boiled and shredded
  • Carrot & beans - chopped & cooked, ½-3/4 cup each
  • Onions-4 big, finely chopped
  • Ginger garlic paste-1 tbsp
  • Chilli powder-1/2 -1tbsp (depending on your spice level, I used Kashmiri chilli powder)
  • Coriander powder-1/2 tbsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil-3 tbsp

  • Preheat the oven @180 C for 15 minutes before baking.
  • Dissolve the yeast in warm water with ½tbsp sugar. Leave aside for 10 minutes. Boil the milk and allow to cool down till it is warm to touch. Add sugar, oil and salt to milk. 
  • Mix well with a wooden spoon till the sugar dissolves and add 1 cup flour and mix to a smooth paste. Add the beaten egg, yeast and mix.
  •  Add the remaining flour and mix well till it forms a smooth dough. (I had to use almost 3 cups of flour to make it a soft dough. 
  • You start with 2 cups of flour as mentioned in the recipe and if you find it difficult to form a soft dough add extra flour little by little, till it forms a soft dough.)Knead well for 10 mins (I knead it using stand mixer). 
  • Let it rest till it doubles in volume (almost 2-3 hrs).Punch down the dough lightly using your palm and divide them equally. 
  • Flatten them into small discs and fill them with 1 tbsp of the filling. Re-shape them into a ball. Apply the egg wash. Sprinkle the top with sesame seeds. Let it prove for another 20 mins. Bake them in a pre-heated oven at 180 C for 15-20 mins.

To make the filling:
  • Heat oil, add the ginger garlic paste and saute till it gives out a nice aroma.
  •  Add the onions & salt. Saute them till soft and transparent. Add the powders and mix well for 2 mins. Add salt, the shredded chicken, cooked veggies and mix well. 
  • Keep it off the fire and let it cool. Use it for filling the dough. I got 7 buns from the above qty.
