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
Sunflower Oil - 1/3 cup
For the Stuffing:
Indian Tomato Pickle / Thokku
Paneer / Cottage Cheese
Egg - 1 (for egg wash)
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.
Get Ready with the stuffing ingredients. also mix an egg with a tbsp of water and beat well with a fork, for egg wash.
Roll the dough very thin.
Spread a tsp of Indian Tomato Pickle / Thokku in the centre of the rolled dough.
Grate some Mozarella chesse over the Tomato Pickle.
Grate Some Paneer over the cheese.
Get ready with Egg wash by breaking a egg into a small bowl. mix a tbsp of water to the egg and beat with a fork. and get some dried parsely, to sprinkle over the paneer stuffing.
Start Rolling the Dough slowly.
Rolling in Progress...
Roll them fully and close the sides of the roll. (those are the mustard's from the pickle popping out..)
Make some incisions over the roll and give a egg wash and sprinkle some sesame seeds over the top of the roll.
Pre-Heat the oven at 375F / 180C. and Bake the roll for 45 mins. and let it cool for 30 minutes before serving.
The Spicy Paneer Stuffed Bread is Ready!! It tasted so Good. Yes the spicy of tomato pickle, cheese were the enjoyable part of the roll. I felt some more veggies could also be added, as the stuffing was not bulk.
Do try it out, if you like spicy breads!
