These Homemade dinner rolls stuffed with cottage cheese (paneer) and sweet corn are an excellent way to get some protein and vegetables into my daughter.
Breads…my one true love…i just love eating them. It could be made from any kind of flour, all purpose or whole wheat or rye…with oats or seeds or just plain..i love them all. Its no wonder that whenever we travel abroad..i just stare at the various boulangeries and order all the breads one by one and..well eat them. The aroma is just so heavenly and inviting isnt it?? This is what i look to create in my small kitchen. I keep experimenting with different type of breads / rolls and try and make them with different stuffings..today i write about a flavourful stuffing with cottage cheese and sweet corn. Here is my Cottage cheese stuffed dinner rolls with sweet corn.
If you ask any of my friends or if you have been following my instagram journey..it would come as no surprise that i bake breads loafs or buns or rolls quite often. My heart just longs for baking savoury kinds of breads ( i have even dreamt about them :D). I tend to ramble when i start talking about breads 😉
My Trip to Boulangerie
Recently when we traveled to Paris, we stayed in Bastille. Bastille is an amazing area to stay, full of restaurants, pubs and supermarkets. We used an airbnb kind of place to stay in Bastille. Most days we cooked breakfast at the place of stay..but on the other days it was always a short walk to the boulangerie or Bagelstein. Oh my… the variety of sandwiches or breakfast breads that they had to offer was simply amazing. The baguette with fresh mozarella, basil and tomatoes was my favourite to eat all day long. They were so simple…just 3 things on a bread and yet so much flavour.
Bagelstein also offered a variety of bagels and converted them into mouthwatering sandwiches..Being vegetarians we could only have one kind of sandwich filling – Cream cheese, salad leaves and roasted vegetables…but wow..how does it matter..simple and tasty..that’s how it was. The boulangerie also sold different variety of sourdough breads which we picked up and had for lunch and dinner..yup we are like that !!!

Really simple, step by step instruction on how to make Homemade healthy whole wheat oats burger buns.These are a wonderful snack for children.
Hello, fellow bakers, moms and dads. Today I want to share a really simple, step by step recipe. Here are instructions on how to make Home made healthy whole wheat and oats burger buns. These are soft and a little dense but wonderful to make burgers for a party or a trip.
I love breads and that is quite evident with me baking breads for us and for friends through out the week. Generally I just use all-purpose flour or maida for breads. Of late I am trying my hand at replacing maida with other flours such as rye, ragi, whole wheat and oats.
Different flours result in different texture and a very different taste. Experimentation will mean multiple recipes and that means lots of permutations and combination of ingredients. This just opens the doors to so many recipes ! (Phew that was a long sentence :D)
This is a recipe I made for friends and this was also my first use of 100% whole wheat and oats as a combination to make burger buns. I am yet to get them soft like buns made with maida but this is definitely a step in the right direction.
So here is my step towards healthy baking: Home made healthy whole wheat and oats burger buns !
If Healthy baking is your cup of tea, you’d love this recipe for Raisin and Walnut Bread loaf.
Umm, just the sound of it makes your mouth water, right?
Homemade Healthy Whole wheat and oats burger buns
Sieve both the flours and set aside in a bowl.
Set aside all the other ingredients in individual bowls before starting.
In a large mixing bowl, add the yeast, sugar, flours, eggs, salt and warm milk and start kneading ( alternatively one can add all the ingredients to a stand mixer, attach the dough hook and start kneading)
Knead the dough just till all the ingredients come together (Over kneading increases the gluten in the dough and the buns become dense after baking)
Grease another large mixing bowl with little oil and lay the dough into that.
Cover the dough with cling film or a plate and let it rest for 45 minutes to 1 hour ( or till the dough doubles in size).
Remove the plate / cling film, punch down the dough and knead a little a bit.
Portion out the dough into small balls and set aside ( i weighed each ball to approximately 70 - 75 gms)
Grease a baking tray and set aside.
Tighten by rolling each ball between your palms and tucking the skin / edges to get a smooth skin on top.
Roll all the dough balls and place them slowly on the baking tray ( leave at least 1 inch space between each ball).
Cover with a wet towel or cling film and let it rise for another 30 minutes ( till the dough balls double in size).
While the dough balls are resting pre-heat the oven to 200 degree C.
Once the dough balls rise, remove the cling film, apply egg wash using a brush and sprinkle sesame seeds on them.
Bake the buns in the oven for 15-20 minutes or till it turns golden brown in colour.
Once baked remove the buns and set aside for 5 minutes ( always wear mittens while removing anything hot from the oven). Apply butter on top of the buns while they are hot.
Remove the buns from the tray and set aside on a wire mesh to cool.( cover them with a dry towel so that the top does not dry out)
Use them to make burgers or have them as is !!!
