Baking is always therapeutic for me. My boys love Bread and prefer to have different types of Buns and bread every weekend. After my last Garlic and Cilantro bake I have experimented and baked Potato and Cilantro buns using the Plain flour that is unbleached. Well my experiment was successful and liked by my boys and parents.
As a part of our 45 th #Foodiemonday #Bloghop theme # Bread my contribution is Potato and Cilantro Buns. Nice brown crust on the top and inside it is soft and fluffy.
Recipe for Potato and Cilantro Buns:
(Yields 9 Buns)
3 Cups Plain flour(Unbleached)
14 Gms Instant Yeast
1 Potato peeled and grated
1 Cup Cilantro
50 Gms Cold Butter
½ Tsp Sugar
1 Green Chilli
50 ML Milk + 2 Tbsp for Milk wash
Sesame seeds for garnish
½ Cup Luke warm water
Salt to taste
Soak yeast in ½ cup luke warm water and keep it in a warm place to proof for about 10 mins.
Grind the peeled potato, cilantro and green chilli to get a fine paste. Do not add water while grinding ensure there are no lumps.
In a wide bottom bowl add the flour ,yeast mixture, butter and potato cilantro mixture, salt and mix well. Add milk in small quantity as needed and knead to get a nice sticky dough. Cover it with a clean Kitchen towel and allow it to raise in a warm place about an hour. I keep it in my microwave.
Once the dough has doubled in size divide the dough in 9 equal parts and give it a round shape .Place them on a baking tray and allow it to raise again for about 30 mins. After the second raise brush the buns with milk and sprinkle the sesame seeds on top.
Preheat the oven at 200C for about 10 mins. Place the baking tray and bake for about 25 to 30 mins.You can see nice brown crust on the top.
Remove from the oven and serve.
