Stuffed Buns

Nehal is mid way through his final exams and am looking at ways to please his growling tummy. He is ever hungry during exam time. Does it happen with your kids too?

I had bookmarked a recipe for chicken stuffed buns quite some time ago but re-discovered it recently and got down to baking them over the weekend. An absolute winner of a recipe from Ria’s mother, Mrs. Susy Mathew, who runs a food catering business. Thank you, Ria for sharing your mother’s stuffed buns recipe. These buns have become a hit not only with my family but friends and neighbors too.

    I too used to feel very hungry during my exams.

  31. These looks warm and delicious. I like the idea of the filling be made for vegetarians like myself. I’m just wondering though about egg replacement. Was the egg in this recipe used to bind the ingredients or to make it soft and airy?

    Hi Sailu, Is there any substitute for milk for this stuffed Bun recipe. My son is severely allergetic to milk. It would be helpful for the moms like me if you can mention alternative( like soy milk or some thing else that is non diary) for the diary products in your recipe whenever possible.

    I love your recipes. I try almost everything that is non diary.

    Thanks and Best Wishes.

    HI..what an amazing collection of recipes you have..have tried out some and it’s been perfect! Specially liked this chicken filled recipe. It came out so well and better than anything I have had in a shop. The only problem was that I had to use almost 4 cups of flour but it didn’t seem to matter as the buns were very soft. Thanks a ton for the recipe!

  53. Veena says:

    Do you know if I can make the dough and save it for the next day for fresh buns everyday?

    Thanks!

    • Yes, refrigerate the dough after it rises. Use it next day.

      • Divya Reddy says:

        Hi sailu garu when should we refrigerate the dough? After the first rise or when it rises after dividing them? I mean after its been stuffed and risen? Once refrigerated will the dough rise again? Pls elaborate iam super tempted to try this recipe but also keen on making couple of buns at a time…

  54. Neelima says:

    I just tried it out today..both kids and adults loved it equally! Kudos for such great recipe.

  55. Reena Gupta says:

    very good concept for preparing bun with simple steps…like your dish…

  56. Sravanthi says:

    I have a combi oven (MW+convection+grill)…what mode should I be using to bake these and all things that need to be baked, like your pav buns etc. Some recipes to make us use these ovens rather than only heating purpose would be of great help, especially mentioning which mode to be used. Thanks.

  58. Sri says:

    Hi Sailu,

    I m big fan of ur recipies. I tried this chicken bun recipe, but a small variation I made them with pizza dough, which I bought from a local bakery and made a vegi filling. I tastes awsome. Thanks for the recipe. Can u tell me what we can make with Ragi flour other than ragi malt and ragi mudda.

  59. SM says:

    Hello Sailu, thanks for a wonderful recipe. I tried it out today, the bun came out tasty, but mine did not brown on the top as yours… any suggestions ? is it the oven temperature or something else missing ?

    • Sometimes if the top element of your oven does not work, browning does not happen. If your buns are cooked through but not browning, place it on the middle rack or top rack. Also pre heat oven for a good 15-20 mts or so.

  60. Iram fatima says:

    hi, i tried the buns, turned out great, just with baking time felt that, if baked(the top and bottom griller on @ 240 degrees C for 8 to 10 mins, they turned out better, but that worked well in my OTG, it may vary from oven to oven.
    just want to say lovely recipe, very simple and great to taste! thank you!

  69. Radha says:

    Hello, thanks for the recipe.. I tried it two times but unfortunately failed both times (my dough didnt rise both time). Once i followed exact recipe and kept dough for 3 hours still it didnt rise at all. Second time i used atta instead of maida and same result. do you have any inputs or suggestions? Also if i am using Microwave with convection and Grill which mode should i use, i believe convection.

  70. Manju says:

    Is the cup meansure, the rice cup which is 160ml or the baking cup which is 235ml? I used the rice cup for consistency but felt the yeast at 1tbsp was more. Please let me know. I enjoyed making the buns! Thank you so much for the recipe.
