So all those who are still thinking of trying this don't brood just go ahead and try these buns..they make a great meal ,anytime of the day !!!

3/4 tsp salt
3 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp water 

For  stuffing 

2  potatoes(boiled)
1/4 cup peas
1/4 cup mixed veg(carrot,beans,cauliflower)
1 onion (chopped)
1 tsp chaat maslaa
1 tsp chilli powder
1/2 tsp chopped ginger
1 tsp crushed coriander seeds
1 tsp cumin seeds
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
2 tsp chopped coriander
Salt to taste

For brushing

Remove from fire and add the coriander leaves and chopped ginger,mix well.
  • After an hour the dough would have doubled in size. Take it  and just give it a gentle knead and make six equal sized balls.
  •  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. Repeat for every bun.
  •  Arrange them in the lined baking tray. Keep the pinched joined side down.Brush them well with milk and top with sesame seeds.
  • Let it rest for 40 minutes .
