It was so soft and fluffy and you can never say it is made with wheat flour. Kneading is the key to get soft buns. For the stuffing I used grated beetroot, potato and capsicum. You can use other veggies or meat too. You can use the same recipe and skip beetroot and make plain buns. Adjust the water quantity accordingly.

  4. Warm the milk and add honey, yeast and mix. Water should be warm not very hot. I usually microwave the for 20 seconds. Close with lid and keep it aside for 10-15 mins to proof the yeast.
  5. After 10 mins yeast mixture should be frothy. It shows yeast is active and we can proceed. If it is not frothy you can discard and use new one. There can be few reasons for yeast to be inactive. Yeast is very old and reaching expiry date. Quality of yeast is not good. If you add yeast to very hot water it will kill the yeast. Proofing of yeast is very important for any bread recipes. if the yeast is not active don't proceed further.
  6. Take flour, salt in a bowl.
  7. Add frothy yeast mixture, beetroot puree and roll into dough.
  8. Add oil to the dough and knead for 10-15 minutes till it is smooth.
  9. Cover and allow the dough to raise for 1-2 hours till it doubles in size.

  12. Then add ginger garlic paste and saute
  13. Then add potato, beetroot and capsicum and saute.
  14. Add salt, red chilli powder, pepper powder, soya sauce and Italian seasoning
  15. Saute till everything is mixed and cooked nicely.
  16. Cool the mixture
  17. Making Buns
  18. After 2 hours, punch the dough and knead little.
  19. Roll the dough as rectangle and spread the stuffing
  20. Sprinkle some cheese on the top and roll the dough as log.
  21. Cut the log as pinwheels and place them in baking pan or tray.
  22. Cover and allow it to raise for 30 mins
  23. Preheat the oven to 175°C for ten minutes and bake in same temperature for 20-25 minutes.
