recipe : for the filling

Ingredients :.

( any dry sabzi or samosa filling is good enough for this bun )

4 medium size potatoes cooked, peeled and mashed .

pinch of turmeric powder

1/2 tsp cumin seeds

2 green chillies finely chopped

some coriander leaves for garnishing

2 tsp oil

salt as needed

1 tomato finely chopped

1-2 small onions finely chopped

some green peas,

1-2 chopped or grated carrots

1 tbsp pav bhaji masala or any garam masala

pinch of amchur masala powder or chaat masala

1/2 tbsp ginger garlic paste ( optional )


Take a pan, add some oil , heat and temper with cumin seeds , green chillies, add in chopped onions, a pinch of salt

to cook onions faster, add in choopped tomatoes, turmeric powder.

Mix well , add in cooked mashed potato mixture, adjust salt, add in the pav bhaji masala powder or garam masala or any sabzi masala , add the amchur powder ,

do not add any water, and the mixture must look combined well and smooth .it is better to keep the filling a little spicier because when we taste the final potato bun , we may find the filling taste is a bit reduced in spice, hence keep filling a little spicy and correct amount of salt , or lime juice .,

I have kept the filling simple but spicy .

Garnish with mint leaves chopped finely or chopped coriander leaves .

Allow the potato mixture to cool down well before placing in the prepared dough for making the buns .

You can also make these in round shape .

  1. First prepare the yeast for activation by adding in a bowl, add warm water and sugar , allow to activate .may take about 10-15 minutes. It should look foamy when activated .
  2. Now add in the flour, salt ,milk powder , to the the water activated by yeast . first use a spatula to mix the ingredients as it will be very sticky, difficult to handle ,
  3. now tip the contents on to a slightly floured board and add in the softened butter ,the dough will be sticky but coming together , keep kneading the sticky mixture which will soon become easy to handle with kneading , do not keep adding any flour, just work the dough and you will get a smooth non sticky dough , about 12 minutes of kneading , you can use a drop of oil to grease your palms.
  4. you will notice dough getting stretchy, supple and smooth . Take the dough and you should be able to stretch . The smooth soft dough is now ready for first proofing . place this dough in an oiled glass bowl, cover with cling wrap or cloth and allow to rise . may take around 40-60 minutes . after an hour or so, notice the dough has almost doubled , now tip the contents onto a floured surface or a non stick mat .
  5. i used a non stick plate which was very useful to bring the sticky dough together without adding too much flour for handling , after the rise . Knock the dough to flat , and punch few times, use a spatula or a scraper to bring together . when you have shaped it to a smooth ball, divide the dough into two , and roll each into long cylindrical shape like a log . slice off small rounds from the log.
  6. Pat each rounds of dough with palm or a lightly use the rolling pin , to shape into a little thick chapati like . keep it medium size about length of palm . we will be placing the filling in each thick chapati so prepared . place the prepared cooled filling in the thick chapati, flatten the filling instead of keeping it in the center like a ball . and now roll up each chapati with the filling gently , no pressure should be applied, arrange on a greased tray for about 30 minutes to proof further
  7. Preheat oven at 200 degrees C . Brush the prepared ( now slightly risen) potato rolls with milk before baking . Sprinkle the sesame seeds on top after brushing with milk . Bake at 200 for 20 minutes. just a little before 20 minutes check on the buns
  8. check to see if the top is getting browned, you can use an aluminium foil to cover to prevent over browning . or reduce heat and allow to bake till done . you can also rotate the tray for even browning . Remove the buns , rub a slice of cold butter on top of each bun to keep a soft crust and a glaze . This bun will remain soft inside and will be easy to slice to bite sized pieces
