Stuffed Vegetables Buns

Stuffed buns are a  very good healthy Tiffin recipe. This is a very nice healthy ifthar recipe. This was an idea of one of my friend and she gave the recipe to me and I tried it today. It was tasty and awesome.  Kids will grab it and try this with small buns. Thanks to Jazeera Faizal my friend who shared this recipe with me. Very very simple recipe and easy to prepare.takes hardly 15 min to prepare.Have a look...

Baby Buns / Small buns  – 5no
Potatoes – 1no (Boiled)
Carrot - 1 no (Boiled)
Beans – hand full (boiled and cut in fine pieces)
Coriander leaves few
Onion – ½ no (finely chopped)
pav baji masala – 1 tsp
Red chili powder – 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Oil or butter for toasting
Eggwhite  for sealing the buns/ maida paste
This filling I used to make it when I prepare the puffs or king samosa. We can do any other filling also. Even a non veg filling like chicken, prawns can also be used… But I like only veg filling in bread and buns.
Heat oil in a pan; add onion and sauté till golden brown. Add the spices  and salt . Mix  potatoes and other vegetables and smash it well . Check for salt. Add the coriander at last. So the filling is ready.

Now stuffing :
Take the bun, cut out a semi circle in the base or side of the bun. Scoop out the bun bits little. Stuff the filling in to it. and seal it with egg white or with maida paste. Heat a tawa, grease it and roast the bun slightly. Serve hot.
