When we hear the word Buns,we ll think of soft and fluffier buns which can go well with tea and coffee.Having soft buns with a yummy chicken stuffing is awesome combo which can have for breakfast itself.....In addition to that the spongy and beautiful teddy shape is an extra attraction to invite kids to grab this bun.......
This bun is made for WKTB group by Aparna.She has suggested us to make a bread with stuffing but not in regular shape....I 've planned to make a cartoon character bun and this teddy bunny came into my mind.Got ideas from google and I made this bun with a secret ingredient in it and stuffed chicken inside sounds yum yum yum.....!!!!!!!!!!!
Maida-51/2 cup(can use half maida and half wheat flour)
dry yeast-2 tbsp
milk-1 cup,luke warm
salt-11/2 tsp or to taste
Butter- 2 tbsp
flax seed paste-1 tbsp flax seed powder mixed with 3 tbsps water leave aside for 5 mins
sugar- 2 tbsp
minced chicken-1 cup onion-1,big chopped Ginger-Garlic paste-1/2 tsp Redchilly powder-1/2 tsp curry powder-1/2 tsp salt to taste lemon juice-1/4 tsp coriender leaves-few oil-1 tbsp
In a pan add oil,when it heats up add onion fry a while add ginger-garlic paste,red chilly powder,curry powder saute till aroma arises.Add minced chicken and salt saute till its done.Add in coriender leaves and lemon juice.Remove from fire and cool them.
Stuffing the buns:
In a bowl add luke warm milk not too hot and nor cool if you insert your finger you must feel it is heat,that is lukewarm.Add sugar and salt stir to dissolve now sprinkle yeast over the milk and rest them undisturbed for over 10 mins or till it becomes frothy.
In a bowl add butter and flaxseed paste,If it is unavailable add 1 egg beat till combined add yeast mixture,warm water mix well and place on a beater with hook attachment or knead by hands for 10-15 mins.
place the dough in a greased bowl and cover with cling wrap and set aside for 1-2 hrs to rise.when its risen up seperate the dough into 4 quarters.
Make one big ball shape and flatten them slightly then place on a greased baking tray.This is the body of the teddy bear.Take 2 small balls make a couch in centre and fill chicken stuffing then close and roll the ball.sligtly flat them and place in sides of the body to make hands.........Take a little bigger balls fill the stuffing and place them as legs.Then take a big ball stuff in and place as head.Do the same and make ears,nose.....Place halved cherry for the nose and use raisins for eyes etc.........
Rest them for 20-25 mins for second rise.Preheat oven to 180°c and coat milk wash over teddies and bake them for 35-40 mins.................
If you don't have beater then mix with whisk and knead the dough by hand.It will be too sticky so use maida flour to prevent your hands from sticking.
