Stuffed Mini Cheese Chicken Burger Buns#BreadBakers

Our family decided to go for a pilgrimage to Nasik Infant Jesus Church. We were 17 members travelling. It was decided that breakfast would be carried by us. My sister was deciding what each one could bring. When she asked me what I could bring, instantly these burger buns came to my mind, since this was on my to do list for quite long.  These  buns are one bite and since there were plenty of breakfast items,  I, thought these would be just right. But,was wrong in my thinking. These were in great demand, sadly, made just one each. 
These buns are proofed overnight in the refrigerator. Baked them early in the morning. Depending on the size, mine took around 18 to 20 minutes to bake at 200 degrees C. Made one only cheese filling for my hubby dear, rest all were with mini chicken patties. For making these the yeast quantity I reduced to half, wanted these to rise slowly and this worked wonderfully. The buns rose perfectly in the refrigerator. I placed them in the refrigerator at 5 pm in the previous day and baked them at 5.30 am the next morning.

Carried the buns in the tray itself and passed on the tray for each to pull one. These were soft, light, delicious and fun to eat. The secret ingredient to make these buns soft, light and delicious is mashed potato. You must try these.
For the patties 
600 Grams Chicken Mince
1 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Red Chilly Flakes
1 Teaspoon Garam Masala powder
8 Green chillies - finely chopped
2 Medium Onions - finely chopped
1 Egg
4 Big White Bread slices
18 - 20 Mint leaves - finely chopped
6 Tablespoons Coriander leaves - chopped
Place the chicken mince in a strainer and let it stand until water drains off ..or else it will get soggy when add spices and other ingredients. Add all the ingredients into it and marinate for about 2 hours.I flattened it in a tray lined with cling film and covered it with cling film, left it overnight in the refrigerator.
 Then next morning I, took a small cutter and cut small patties. 
Fried them in little oil till golden on both sides, Leave them cool completely. 
For the Buns 
1/2 Cup Heaped Mashed Potato
2 Tablespoons Butter
2 1/2 Cups Level All Purpose Flour
1 Teaspoon Sugar
1.1/4 Teaspoon Level Instant yeast
1 Teaspoon Level Salt
3/4 to 1 Cup Of Potato Cooking Water
For Brushing On Buns1 Egg beaten with 1 tablespoon milk
Other Ingredients for the filling5 Cheese Slices - each cut into 4 equal squares
18 Slices  Homemade Pickled Gherkins - drained

For the buns
Brush 3 medium potatoes till clean and cook them in water till done. Then peel them, grate them or use a ricer to get smooth mashed potatoes. Measure 1/2 cup heaped very firmly packed mashed potatoes Reserve the cooking water to knead the dough.
In the bowl of a food processor (or a large bowl if kneading by hand) whisk together the flour, sugar, yeast, butter and salt. Add potato mixture to flour mixture and run it until well combined. Now keep adding the potato water little by little on low speed until dough is soft and slightly sticky but smooth. Take the dough on to an oiled surface and knead it for about 8 to 10 minutes till it's smooth and soft. Shape the dough into a ball and place in a oiled container, flipping and turning once to get it well oiled. 
Cover tightly with cling wrap and allow to rise in a until almost doubled in volume.
When it doubles in volume turn out the dough onto a weighing scale and accordingly cut into equal size ball. Each ball is 40 grams, the last one was 45 grams. I got 18 buns from the dough. Cover the balls loosely with a damp cloth to prevent dough from drying out.
Working with one piece of dough at a time and keeping remaining pieces covered, form dough pieces into smooth, balls rounds. Cover rounds with plastic wrap and allow to rest for 15 minutes.

Oil a baking tray and dust it lightly with flour. 
On a oiled surface, firmly pat down each dough round into a flat disk. 
Place a slice of pickled gherkin in the center, followed by a quartered slice of cheese
then top it with the chicken patty. 
Gather up the dough on top of the filling, pressing the dough over itself to seal. 
Turn upside down then place on the prepared baking tray, seem-side down. Repeat with the rest of the dough. 
Cover with a cling wrap and place it in the refrigerator. 
An hour before baking, take the tray out and let it come to room temperature. Brush them with egg wash and keep them covered.
Pre heat the oven to 200 degrees C and bake them until golden brown, 18 to 20 minutes, rotating baking sheet halfway through to ensure even brownness.  Serve them warm.

Peperoncini Focaccia Bread#BreadBakers

It's  posting time for  February Bread Bakers Event " Catch up Theme"  and our  Host is Pavani Nandula.
In 2016 August - Peppers was the theme, could not participate in this event. Made this Focaccia Bread with Peperoncini and Red Bell peppers which was to be done for the event. 

Peperoncini is a type of mild, green chilly pepper with a yellowish tint, here these are called Gol Mirch. These are my Homemade Pickled Peperoncini, it's preserved in vinegar. These chilles are not spicy and give a distinctive taste to the bread.   The method of pickling them is same recipe is as This
I have posted a recipe of Focaccia Caprese
For today's recipe I, used more than 1/3 cup of pomace olive oil for kneading the dough. I know you will say that's a lot of oil, but, trust me, make this bread and you will love it. My hubby enjoyed this bread and loved the taste of olive oil in it, who otherwise does not like so much of oil in anything that you serve him. This bread was so delicious and pretty to look at. 
For the Dough
1 Teaspoon Instant yeast
A Pinch Sugar
2 Cups All Purpose Flour
1 Teaspoon Salt
1/3 Cup Pomace Olive Oil
250 ML Water - more or less
For the Topping

2 Tablespoon Finely Chopped Red Bell Pepper
2 Sprigs Fresh Rosemary
Extra Virgin Olive Oil for the final drizzle
4 -5 Peperoncini - sliced
To Make the dough

Place in the yeast, sugar, flour, salt, into the bowl and mix well. Gradually add water and 1/4 cup oil knead until you have a wet sticky dough. Take it on to a generously oiled work surface, oil your hands and with a bench scrapper keep on folding the dough , till you get a smooth and soft dough ( this dough will be sticky so do not any flour). Then place it in a well oiled bowl turning the dough around so that it is coated with oil. Cover it using a damp cloth and let it rise till it doubles in volume.

Drain all the water from Peperoncini and slice it. Keep it aside. 

Take a rectangular pan 9 x 7 inches grease it with olive oil well. Punch down the dough and place the dough on to the pan and with press it till the sides of the pan. 
Make dimples and arrange the sliced peperoncini, bell peppers and sprinkle rosemary, drizzle generously with pomace olive oil and let it rest for 15 to 20 minutes.
Bake at 200 degrees C for about 20 to 25 minutes till it is done ( start to leave the sides of pan) and is beginning to turn golden brown on top.
Once the Focaccia is out from the oven, drizzle generously over it Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
 Take it out from the pan and place it on to a cooling rack. 
When cooled sliced it and enjoy. 
Fresh from the oven this is absolutely divine.

Cloverleaf Rolls#BreadBakers

So quickly the months have gone by, 2018 is over and we ushered into a new year 2019. Our Bread Bakers theme for the new year begins with Good Luck Breads, our host is Felice Geoghegan
I, made these  Eggless Cloverleaf Rolls for this event. Cloverleaf rolls are small balls made of three sections and more like a pull-apart bun. These are a real treat and very versatile, can be eaten for dinner or for breakfast with butter and jam.
Makes 12 Rolls

300 Grams Bread Flour
200 Ml Warm Milk
11 Grams Hefe / Fresh Yeast
2 Teaspoons Sugar
3/4 Teaspoon Salt
2 Tablespoons Oil
50 Ml Water


In a mixing bowl or food processor add the sugar, yeast, milk, when the yeast starts to bubble, add the flour, salt and oil, and run the processor on low speed adding the water a little at a time till it forms into a dough. Now run the food processor on high speed to make a nice soft and smooth dough for about 8 to 10 minutes. 
Shape the dough into a ball and lightly coat with oil place it into a bowl. Cover the bowl with damp cloth and set it at room temperature to double in volume.
Brush a 12 cup muffin tin with oil and keep aside.

When the dough has doubled, punch it down and divide it into 12 parts. Divide each part into three equal-sized pieces and roll each piece into tiny balls. I used the kitchen scale to make equal size balls around 15 to 16 grams each.
Place 3 balls, seam side down, in each muffin cup. Brush them with milk, cover the muffin tin with damp cloth , put it in a warm spot and let the rolls rise till they double in size.
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.Once they double in size and bake the cloverleaf rolls until golden brown, about 22 to 25 minutes.
Remove the rolls from the oven, and brush immediately with the melted butter. After 5 minutes, carefully transfer them to a rack. 
Serve warm, or at room temperature. 
Enjoy them for breakfast or dinner.

Chocolate Babka#BreadBakers

Chocolate babka, a dense, rich yeasted loaf swirled with an equally rich chocolate filling, is a classic eastern European Jewish bread. 
Yields: 1 loaf
For the dough
 Cups All Purpose Flour
1/3 Cup Level Granulated Sugar
11 Grams Fresh Yeast
2 Small Eggs
½ Cup Milk
½ Teaspoon Fine Sea Salt
75 Grams Cold Unsalted Butter- cut into small cubes 

For the Chocolate filling:
1/4 Cup Caster sugar - I did not add
¼ cup Unsweetened Cocoa powder
75 Grams Dark chocolate - melted
50 Grams Unsalted butter - melted
50 Grams Chocolate chips or chunks 

For the sugar syrup 
¼ Cup Water
¼ Cup Granulated Sugar 

Making the dough
 Place flour, sugar, yeast, and  in a food processor  and mix on low speed until combined. Add eggs,  milk and mix on medium speed until dough comes together, 2-3 minutes. Add salt, then butter, adding a few cubes at a time, mixing until incorporated. Continue mixing for about 10 minutes on medium speed, until dough is completely smooth, elastic, shiny, and pulls away from the sides of the bowl. During mixing, you will need to scrape down the sides of the bowl. 
Place dough in a large bowl brushed with oil, cover with plastic wrap, and  it to rise once risen then leave in the fridge for at least 6 - 8 hours or overnight.
Grease one loaf with oil and line the bottom of each pan with parchment paper with the sides hanging out.
To make the filling
Melt the chocolate and butter, then add the cocoa powder and mix  together until you have a spreadable paste.
 Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface and shape into a rectangle measuring 15 x 11 inches. 
Position dough so that a long side is closest to you. Using an offset spatula, spread half of the chocolate mixture over the rectangle, leaving a ½ inch border all sides . 
Sprinkle chocolate chips on top of the chocolate. 
Shaping the dough 
Use both hands to roll up the rectangle like a log, starting from the long side closest to you and ending at the other long end. 
Press to seal the dampened end onto the log, then use both hands to even out the roll into a perfect thick long roll.
Rest the on its seam side down. 
Use the knife to gently cut the roll in half lengthwise, starting at the top and finishing at the end, essentially 
dividing the log into two long even halves, with the layers of dough and filling visible along the length of both halves. 
With the cut sides facing up
gently press together one end of each half, then lift the right half over the left half. 
Repeat this process, but this time lifting the left half over the right, to create a simple two-pronged plait / braid. Gently squeeze together the other ends so that you are left with the two halves, intertwined and the babka is ready to go into the baking pan. 
Carefully lift the babka into a loaf pan. Don’t worry if there are gaps in the pan since the braid will rise and will eventually look fine, even if you feel like it’s messy at this point. 
Cover the pan loosely with plastic wrap or a damp tea towel and leave to rise in a warm place for an hour  to rise( this dough will not double in size- it will rise a little). 
Preheat oven to 190°C, making sure to allow plenty of time for it to heat fully before the babka has finished rising. Place the pan on middle rack of oven, and bake for about 25-30 minutes, until a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean with no dough attached. 
While the babka is in the oven, let's make the syrup
In a small saucepan over medium heat, bring water and sugar to a boil. As soon as the sugar dissolves, remove from heat and set aside to cool. 
As soon as the babka is out of the oven, brush the syrup over it. Use all of the syrup, even if it looks a lot. 
Let babka cool until it is warm, then remove from pans and let cool completely before serving. Serve warm or at room temperature. 
Just out of the oven and super delicious Babka.. see the swirls, irresistible..
As the babka is baking my house is filling with the aroma of chocolate, yum yum!!
My Notes
Since this dough is a brioche dough / a buttery  dough. 
After  the first rise, it’s highly recommended to place it in the fridge for at least 8 hours or overnight, so it sets properly and is easy to work with. Mine rolled out so smoothly and beautifully after refrigeration.
 To make the filling 
I have seen many recipes using sugar too.  I have not added it  , since even chocolate chips is added in the filling and I did not want a too sweet babka.  If you want add 1/4 cup caster sugar.  Choice is yours. 
Even though I did not add the sugar in the filling this is so sweet and divine to taste..
This babka is super delicious.
