How to make Batata Pav / Potato stuffed Buns

  1. First prepare the stuffing: Just mix all the ingredients listed under the stuffing section and set aside.
  2. In a bowl take the warm water around 3/4 cup, add the sugar stir well and add the yeast to it. Keep it covered for 10 to 15 minutes until proved and frothy.
  3. In a wide bowl add the flour and salt. Stir well. Now add the yeast mixture and oil. Knead into a soft dough, if required add additional 1/4 cup of water.
  4. Once all the flour is kneaded, dust the counter top with flour and transfer the dough on to it. Knead the dough for a good 10 minutes, this helps in developing the gluten.
  5. Once it is soft and non sticky, transfer it to a greased bowl. Cover and set this in a warm place until doubled in size.
  6. Punch down the air and knead for a minute. Now divide the dough into four and shape into balls. Place on a greased tray and set aside covered for half an hour.Remove one dough ball, punch out the air and knead lightly and pat into a disc.
  7. Place a spoonful of potato mixture in the centre. Bring all the edges together and seal them as we do for parathas. Once sealed shape it gently into a smooth ball.
  8. Meanwhile grease the baking tray with oil / butter and dust with flour. Repeat the process of kneading, patting, filling, sealing, shaping with the rest three dough balls as well.
  9. Cover this with a lint free damp cloth and set aside for 20 minutes. Brush the tops with milk and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  10. Now bake them in a preheated oven at 200 degree centigrade, approx for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown crust is formed. Once baked remove and cool them slightly at room temperature.
