Salt to taste


1. In a pan, saute the ginger-garlic paste. Add onion and stir fry.
2. Add all the chopped vegetables, salt and stir fry for a minute.
3. Add the spices, sprinkle little water and simmer till done.(it should be dry)
Let it cool
4. Take the white flour, make a well in the middle.Put only sugar and break the yeast on top of the sugar.
5. Sprinkle the salt on the side (there should be no contact between salt and yeast)
6. Now take water and milk, (make sure the water is not HOT. just luke warm) pour it on the yeast, mix well and knead it, adding the ghee.

7.Knead the dough well for 3-4 minutes (preferably on the kitchen platform, using both hands)and keep it in a covered dish in a warm place till it is risen to double.

(about 15-20 minutes in summer ... in winter it takes a little longer)

8. Now take a small portion of the dough, roll it (do not use dry flour to roll ..if needed use oil with finger tip)

9. Place the filling in the middle and close it.

10. Place the stuffed buns on a greased baking tray, leaving enough space beween each.

11. Leave them in the oven again for 15-20 minutes to rise.(brush them with egg-white if desired (vegetarians can use milk),this gives a glossy look when ready)

11.Now bake them in the pre-heated oven ( 250 C ) It takes 15-17 minutes.
(If you have not used egg-white to brush, you may brush them with ghee after they are baked and still hot.)

    1. Hi Radhika,
      Where do you live ?
      Abroad we get fresh yeast will find it in the butter section..
      In India you have to get it from bakeries..some of the stores also have it.
