Palya Bun / Eggless Bun / Stuffed Masala Buns recipe


Palya Bun (Egg less)/ Stuffed Masala Buns Recipe  (Makes 6 Buns)

All measurements to be done with standard measurement cups/Tbsp. Baking is different from Cooking. In cooking approx measurements can be used but in Baking one needs to measure exactly to get desired result. 

For Buns:
Maida - 1.5 cups 
Instant Yeast- 3/4 Tbsp
Warm Milk- 1/4 cup
Water- 1/4 cup
Sugar- 1 Tbsp
Salt- 3/4 tsp
Water- 1/4 cup
Canola Oil or Sunflower Oil or Olive oil-3 Tbsp (Use oil whichever you use for cooking at home)

For Stuffing: 
Potato: 2 small
Onion: 1 small
Frozen or Fresh peas: a handful
Green Chili: 5
Curry leaves: few
Garam Masala: a pinch (optional, I don't use it)
Mustard, urid dal and chana dal, cashews, turmeric for oggarane (tempering)

For Stuffing:
1. Start with stuffing preparation. Cook Potato in pressure cooker. Cool, peel and mash potatoes. If using frozen peas put them in with potatoes for cooking. 
2. Heat oil and add mustard, dals and cashews. When dals brown add in chili, onion and fry till onions are soft. I prefer cutting onions into cubes and chili slit length wise.Add turmeric and mix well. 
3. Add in curry leaves, salt and mashed potatoes. You can cut curry leaves into small pieces so it gets mixed easily. Drain peas from water and add them too. Mix well and warm it. Switch off the stove and keep it aside to cool. 

For Buns :
1. Measure 1.5 cups of plain flour or maida into a bowl. Add in salt and mix well.
2. Add sugar to warm milk and stir well to combine. Mix 3/4 Tbsp of instant yeast to milk and mix. Leave this mixture for 2-5 mins for it to froth well. 
3. Dig a well in the center of the plain flour heap. Measure oil, water and pour in the well. Pour in Yeast mixture and slowly mix the flour from sides to make a dough. This dough looks like chapathi dough . Cover and keep the dough for 30-40 mins for it to rise. Use a damp cloth to cover the bowl or just use cling film. Dough doubles in quantity. 
4. After 40 mins, oil your hands (olive oil) and pinch 6 portions of the dough. 
5. Flatten each dough into 2" circle. Place a spoon full of filling and pull the dough from all sides to close it. Finish this with all 6 buns.   
6. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Line all the 6 buns into the tray and cover with damp cloth or cling film for another 10 mins or until your oven is preheated. 
7. Preheat the oven to 190 C. Bake these buns for 15 mins or till golden. Cool them on racks for 10 mins. Coat the surface of the buns with butter when it is hot. Serve warm with Coffee or Chai.
