Stuffed Buns

Stuffed buns


      I saw these really yummy stuffed buns in Marias Menu and wanted to give it a try. I have bookmarked lots of her yummy recipes but this is the first one I tried. The buns turned out really well and was absolutely delicious. I was so excited that I sent its pictures to all my friends, the minute I clicked them. Its just so easy to make them though it takes a few hours to get the end result. My hubby loved it and he in fact took it for his lunch next day :). Thanks a lot Maria for sharing this recipe and thanks to Ria who shared the original recipe.  Though I tried to stick to the recipe, some measurements got changed when I made the dough. I made it twice in the last week with the same measure of ingredients and both times they turned out successful. I used a chicken and egg filling for these buns.


For the bun (Yield – 9 buns)



  1. All purpose flour/maida – 2.5 cups
  2. Active dry yeast – 2 tsp
  3. Warm water – 2 tbsp
  4. Sugar – 1 tbsp + 1 tbsp
  5. Milk – 1/4 cup
  6. Oil – 1/4 cup
  7. Egg – 1 beaten
  8. Egg white – of 1 egg, for egg wash
  9. Sesame seeds – 1.5 tsp, to sprinkle
  10. Salt – To taste 




1. Dissolve the yeast in warm water along with 1 tbsp sugar. Set aside for around 10 mts.


2. Combine the all purpose flour(start adding 1 cup, you will need to add more while kneading the dough), sugar, milk, oil, salt and mix until you get a smooth paste. Now add the beaten egg, yeast, remaining all purpose flour and knead until you get a soft dough, adding extra flour little by little( I used a food processor). Keep it covered in a warm place for around 2-3 hrs. The dough will double in volume by that time.

3. Now punch it down lightly and make large lemon-sized balls out of it. Flatten them and fill with the stuffing (around 1.5 tbsp each).  Reshape back into a ball. Arrange them on a greased foil and let them rest for 15 – 20 mts. Preheat the oven at 350 F for around 15 mts. Beat the egg white nicely, apply it over the buns and sprinkle sesame seeds. Put them in a baking tray and bake for 20 – 25 mts or until their surface becomes reddish brown in color.
