Spicy Paneer Stuffed Bread

I find very difficult to find time, even to check mails, in such case, blogging has become a dream to me. As hubby dear had gone to Paris, Managing home alone is a tough task. Time goes so slowly, and now i realise, how helpful was my hubby, all these days. A Person's absence brings the Person so close is absolutely True. I experience it right now!

Stuffed Bread

Last week, Chennai got rains, and we enjoyed the climate very much. as a part of it, i loved to spend time in kitchen making these Spicy Stuffed Bread. This was prepared after getting inspired from Ari's Baking and Book's Hot Pockets.I customised the Filling / Stuffing the Indian Way and its the best way to impress an Indian Tummy, I bet!

Ingredients: (Makes 8 thin rolls)

Wheat Flour - 1 cup
Maida / All Purpose Flour - 2 and 1/2 Cup's (Divided)
Active Dry Yeast - 2 tsp
Sugar - 2 tsp
Warm Milk - 1/3 cup
Warm Water - 1/3 cup
Salt - 2 tsp
Egg -1
Sunflower Oil - 1/3 cup

For the Stuffing:

Indian Tomato Pickle / Thokku
Mozarella Cheese
Paneer / Cottage Cheese
Egg - 1 (for egg wash)
Sesame Seeds


Warm the water and Milk and mix together. Add Dry Yeast and Sugar to it and mix well, till the yeast gets mixed. let them rest for 10 minutes, till the yeast mix, turns frothy.

In a mixing bowl, mix the Oil and one Egg. beat it well. Add the Yeast mix to the bowl.

Add Wheat Flour to the bowl and mix. Now add all purpose flour - 1 cup and mix well. add another one cup of all purpose flour and mix, combine all the flour together and make it as dough ball.

Knead the Dough ball, with the help of the 1/2 a cup of all purpose flour, for atleast 10 minutes.

Grease a Glass bowl, with little oil and put the kneaded dough into the bowl. wrap the bowl with a cling sheet and let the dough raise for about 1 and 1/2 an hour.

After the Dough has raised, pinch a lemon sized dough and roll it, by dusting some flour for help.
