Salt                                                             3/4 tsp
Olive oil                                                     3 tblsp

For stuffing:
Potato                                                         2 nos. (small)
carrot/beans/peas(together)                        1/2 cup
Onion                                                         1 no.
Jeera or ajwain                                           1 tsp
Garam masala powder                               1/4 tsp
Red chilli powder                                      1/4 tsp
Turmeric powder                                       1/8 tsp
Coriander leaves, lemon Juice                  As to taste
Oil                                                             1 tsp
Salt                                                            As to taste


Warm the milk,add sugar to it and mix well. Add the yeast to it and mix well. Keep aside.
Take flour and make a dent,add water,olive oil,salt in it and the yeast completely dissolved in the milk.
Mix and make a smooth dough,keep in a warm place covered with a cling wrap for an hour.
Meanwhile prepare the stuffing. Cook the vegetables and heat a pan with oil,season with jeera/ajwain,add the onion and fry till transparent.
Add the masala powder,red chilli powder,turmeric and salt and give it a quick stir.
Add the cooked,mashed vegetables and fry till everything mixes well.
Remove from fire and add the coriander leaves and lemon juice if desired,mix well.
By now/after an hour, the dough we prepared would have doubled in size. Take it again and just give it a gentle knead and make six equal sized balls.
Line a baking tray with aluminium foil,grease with olive oil and arrange the rolled balls with enough spacing between them. Brush with olive oil .
Meanwhile roll the stuffing after cooling down completely.The stuffing should be around half the size as we roll the buns.
After 10 minutes or so the rolled bun dough, would have raised again just a little bit .
Take each bun and make a dent in the middle.
Keep the rolled stuffing inside and pinch all the end towards centre to cover the stuffing.
Roll in to smooth bun. Repeat for every bun. Arrange them in the lined baking tray. Keep the pinched joined side down.Brush them well with olive oil.
Preheat the oven for 190°C. When the preheat is finished,by the time the buns would have raised too.
Bake for 17- 20 mins or until the top crust turns golden brown in colour. (Mine took exactly 20 mins) Smells heavenly!!
After finished baking,brush them with butter or oil and enjoy with tea/evening snack! This would also be a great snack for kids after they come back from school!
