Alu (Potato) buns


3 cups all purpose flour/maida
2 tsp dry active yeast
3 tbsp butter
3/4 tsp salt
1 1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup lukewarm water
2 tbsp sugar

For Potato mixture

2 boiled potatoes
2 tsp oil
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 small onion chopped
1 tsp red chilli powder
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 green chilli slit into half
Salt to taste
Finely chopped coriander leaves
Heat the milk till lukewarm and add butter. Heat water till lukewarm and add the yeast and sugar. Mix and let it stay till it froths up. Add salt and butter-milk mix to it and stir. Add in the flour little by little and keep mixing to get a dough. Knead well for 10 minutes and place in a greased bowl and cover with slightly wet cloth. Place the bowl in a warm area till the dough doubles in size.

Heat oil and add cumin seeds. When it splutters, add green chilli and onions. After a minute, add turmeric powder, roughly mashed potato, red chilli powder and salt. Mix well and add finely chopped coriander leaves.

Make medium sized balls, flatten a bit and keep some of the potato stuffing. Wrap the filling with the dough completely so that it doesnt come out. Repeat for rest of the dough. Arrange them on a baking tray leaving some gap in between.

Leave it to double again and then bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees for 20-25 minutes until it is done and slightly brown.

Cool and serve
