Here's my prep for this afternoon:
|Superbowl Stuffed Bread Buns|
For the stuffing I used a mix of potatoes, onions and green bell peppers. I spiced it up with pav bhaji masala, salt, sugar and lemon juice.
The bread is made using my trusted recipe:
Heat 1 cup water to 100-110F, add 1 packet yeast and 1 tbsp sugar. Mix well and leave aside for 10 mins. It should froth by then.
Take 4 tbsp melted butter, 1.5 tsp salt and 1/2 cup milk pwd in a big bowl. Add the frothy yeast mix to it. Now add 3 cup flour, 1 cup at a mix. Mix well. Knead for 5 mins. Add few drops of oil and keep kneading another 5 mins. Cover the bowl and keep in a warm place for 2 hrs. The dough will double in size by this time. Punch down the dough, divide into about 15 balls. Stuff each ball with the potato mixture. Bring ends together and seal shut. Shape into oblongs and press ends slightly to give them football shape. Place on a baking sheet which is covered with foil. Cover the buns with a moist paper towel or kitchen towel. Keep in a warm place for 1 hour. Then brush tops with milk and bake in a pre heated 350F oven for 1/2 hour or until light brown on top.
Let them cool before decorating with the lace. For this I used room temperature Nuefchatel cheese with a pinch of salt and chaat masala. I also added few drops of milk to make it easier to pipe it. I filled this mix in a plastic bag, made a small cut in a corner and piped the lace onto the football buns.
