Today i decided to try out a nice rich dough . My daughter Chaya wanted to learn how to bake buns. I have already shared a few recipes making dough but this dough is rich and delicious. You can make lots of things out of it..sweet and savoury. I made an olive focacia, a kabab roll, chooclate stuffed buns and even a small cute pizza!! The dough has to be worked a lot and my daughter chaya made it with me! I used egg for this dough but vegetarians can omit this and can even substitute milk for anything else they find suitable.
INGREDIENTS FOR THE DOUGH:
1 sachet (2 teaspoons) of dry active yeast
8 teaspoons of sugar
1 teaspoon of salt
1/2 cup of warm water
1/2 cup of warm milk (or more)..you can use even soya milk or any kind of milk
1/2 cup of melted butter
500 grams of white lour (maida)
1 egg , optional
Put the yeast in a bowl and add the warm water and leave it for a few minutes for the yeast to get frothy. Add the sugar and salt and then the white flour and the butter. Add the egg and using milk make a soft pliable dough. Knead the dough for at least 5 mintues till it gets really smooth.
Cover it and keep it in a warm place so it rises to double its size!! Now you can use it.
FOR HONEYCOMB CHOCOLATE FILLED BREAD
make small balls out of the dough… Roll them a bit and stuff with a piece of chopped chocolate. Seal and place in a round oven proof dish one next to the other so it resembles a honeycomb. Bake in a preheated ocen at 200 deg
FOR KABAB ROLL:
roll a bit of the dough to an oblong shape. Put the kabab in and roll it. Seal well and bake
FOR OLIVE BREAD
shape the dough into a nice oblong or round shape about 1 inch thickness. Put olives into it pressing them in slightly. Bake till browned
Thats it!! You can do soo many thing with this dough!!!!!!
