garlicky potato buns.JPG

Don't we all just love quick bites to pack off to kid's lunches, office tiffins, morning breakfasts and evening snacks, a no fuss, minimal work, all-in-one solution...these buns are exactly that a delicious option for all the busy bees, or maybe I did not want to bake buns and then figure out a filling for them, well so I thought let's bake the filling right into it!, Ingenuity or plain laziness, it's hard to say, well you enjoy them while I figure it out!!!


  • Warm water-1 cup

  • Sugar-1 tbsp

  • Active dry yeast-3/4 tbsp

  • Salt-1/2 tbsp

  • Oil- 2tbsp

  • All purpose flour- 3 cups

  • Boiled potatoes/Vegetables of choice

  • Butter-1 tbsp(for brushing over after baking)

  • Egg-1 (for brushing over before baking), can use milk wash instead too

  • Garlic-2 large cloves, chopped

  • Seasoning of choice

METHOD-Warm water and add sugar, sprinkle yeast and leave to proof for 10 minutes.In the meantime prepare filling-Spray a little oil in a non-stick pan and add garlic and then diced potatoes, you can add cumin too if you like, fry for 10 minutes, add seasoning and cilantro if desired and keep aside to cool.To the yeast mixture add the oil, salt and then flour in 3 parts, till a smooth dough is achieved, leave in an oiled bowl for 1 hour till well risen.Shape dough into buns after 1 hour and stuff with mixture, encasing well, place on baking tray and brush with egg wash then sprinkle with sesame seeds, leave for 1 hour more, then bake at 200C for 30 minutes, immediately brush with butter, serve with ketchup.

I LOVE buns with the filling baked in (ie : Char Siu Bao, the baked ones), but a garlic potato filling sounds amazing! A must try for me. Beautifully done!
