The Pasta bun I have prepared is very simple and easy to make. It is stuffed with pasta and vegetables. It can be served as an evening snack with tea or coffee.

Ingredients Serving: 3

  1. For the buns -
  2. 2 cups all purpose flour (Maida)
  3. 3/4 tbsp active dry yeast
  4. 1 tsp salt
  5. 1 tbsp sugar
  6. 1/2 cup warm milk
  7. 1 tbsp olive oil
  8. For the pasta stuffing
  9. ½ cup Penne Rigate pasta
  10. 1 ½ tbsp oil
  11. ½ tsp finely chopped garlic
  12. 1 tsp soya sauce
  13. 1 tsp chilli sauce
  14. 2 tsp tomato sauce
  15. ¼ cup veggies (peas, corn and finely chopped carrot)
  16. ½ tsp pepper powder
  17. 2 tbsp chopped coriander leaves
  18. salt to taste


  1. Take salt, sugar and yeast in a bowl, add warm milk and mix well.
  2. Stir well till the yeast and sugar dissolve.
  3. Set this aside for 10 minutes for the yeast to froth.
  4. Take maida in a large bowl, add the yeast mix and knead for a few minutes to form a dough.
  5. Add water if necessary.
  6. Finally add oil and knead again to form a smooth and soft dough.
  7. Cover with a lid and set aside for 1 or 1 ½ hours till the dough doubles in size.
  8. While the dough is resting, we can prepare the pasta stuffing.
  9. Boil water in a pan and add pasta to it.
  10. When it is half cooked, carefully take out the pasta and cut each pasta into 2 or 3 pieces.
  11. This will help while stuffing the pasta inside the buns.
  12. Put them back in the water and cook till they are soft, cooked and still hold shape.
  13. After the pasta is cooked, drain the excess water and keep the pasta ready.
  14. Heat 1½ tsp oil in a non stick pan and add carrots and peas.
  15. Stir fry for a few minutes till the carrots and peas are cooked.
  16. Transfer it to a plate, add remaining oil to the same pan and stir the garlic for a few minutes.
  17. Then add all the three sauces, salt, pepper powder, fried veggies and corn and mix well.
  18. Finally add cooked pasta, and coriander leaves.
  19. Stir for 2 to 3 minutes till mixed well.
  20. Switch off the gas and allow the pasta stuffing to cool.
  21. After the dough has doubled, knock down the air and knead for a few more minutes.
  22. Grease your hands with oil and divide this into 6 equal balls and place it in a greased plate.
  23. Now fill 2 tsp of the pasta stuffing in each dough ball and seal it completely with the dough.
  24. Make sure that there are no cracks in the dough.
  25. After filling, place the stuffed pasta dough balls on a greased aluminium tray 1” apart (as the buns will expand on baking) and close with a cloth or lid.
  26. Preheat the oven at 170 degree Celsius for 10 minutes.
  27. Brush the buns lightly with milk on top and place the tray in the central rack of the oven and bake for 20 to 25 minutes at the same temperature.
  28. Allow it to sit inside for 2 to 3 minutes before taking out the tray.
  29. Serve warm with milk, tea or coffee.
