About Caterpillar Stuffed Bread Recipe

We are in love with this stuffed caterpillar buns recipe. Every time I make the dough in large quantity, hoping to store some in the freezer for later use. But that simply doesn't happen. It gets over that same day or max survives for the next mornings tiffin. I have now started to make large batches and store it in the freezer for those "Choti si Bhook time"or the evening tea time. I just have to bring it down to room temperature before using the dough and filling it up for the second proofing

How to make Caterpillar Stuffed Bread

  1. Sieve the APF to remove any lumps
  2. In a bowl, take warm milk, add sugar and yeast and keep it to bloom for about 5-10 minutes (will depend on the quality of your yeast and the milk temperature)
  3. Now mix the milk and yeast mixture with APF, salt and some oil (about 2-3 tbsp) and make a soft dough. Knead the dough for approximately 15-20 minutes to release the gluten (you can keep adding very small quantities of APF and Oil alter
  4. Cover the dough with a damp cloth and leave it in a warm place to proof (double up) - Takes about 45 mins to 1 hour depending on the weather conditions in your area
  5. When the dough has doubled up, divide the dough into 2 equal portions on a clean surface, roll out the dough using a rolling pin.
  6. Apply some melted butter in the rolled out dough and spread the stuffing mix (list of ingredients for spread given below)
  7. Cut the dough at the edges as shown in the picture.
  8. Start folding the dough as shown in the picture.
  9. Leave these buns for a second proofing for about 20-30 minutes on a baking tray.
  10. After 20 minutes, preheat your oven at 200 Deg Cel
  11. Bake the buns at 180 Deg for about 21-25 minutes or till nicely brown on the top.
  12. Remove it and allow it to cool on a wire wrack

My Tip:

Can be enjoyed as it is or with loads of butter or with a nice, hot piping soup
