Savoury Chicken Buns

This is an easy to make recipe.I have used chicken to stuff the buns but a meat of your choice or even  fish too could be used in the filling.You could also make the filling a day ahead and refrigerate.I know there's plenty of smiles in my home when  the aroma  of freshly  baked buns wafts through my kitchen door.



Ingredients for the buns
3 cups all purpose flour 2 1/2 teaspoons instant yeast 2 teaspoon salt 2 teaspoon sugar 1 tablespoon powder milk  3 tablespoon oil  1 ½ cups lukewarm water

Method -In a large bowl mix all the dry ingredients and then add the oil and water ( use the water little by little till you get the correct consistency) and knead it to a soft dough.It should feel smooth and elastic to the touch.If its too wet add a little flour and knead again.Grease another bowl and place the dough in it covering with cling film or cloth and leave it to activate in a warm place.When it doubles the size in 1-2 hours,Divide the dough into golf size balls .Flatten out each ball into a small tortilla/chapatti.Place approximately 1 and  ½  tablespoons of filling in one end ( edge ) of the tortilla/chapatti Roll over once, tuck in the sides, and then continue rolling. Seal the top.Leave to rise again for 15 minutes. Glaze the buns with egg yolks Then bake it in a pre heated oven at 350F for approximately 25 minutes
You can make a dozen or more  buns
