Tried something new for a little Tea Party that I hosted a couple of weeks back and it came out so yummy and "good looking" that I HAD share with you..
This is one of the things that looks difficult but is actually verrry easy to make and is sure to be a hit at any party- whether its a children's party or an adult tea-party or even a continental/English dinner!
And your guests are definitely going to look amazed if you tell them that they are home baked and not from some bakery...
Mutton Stuffed Dinner Rolls:
150 gm maida- 1 cup
1tbsp vegetable oil
1 tsp dry yeast
mix all the ingredients given above one by one, and then mix with cold milk (3 tbsp) till the ingredients just hold together...
then clean the slab that you are working on and throw the kneaded flour mixture on the platform again and again till well mixed-(this process really makes the dough soft and pliant)
put the flour in a box and cover and keep aside for 4 hours... it will double in size.
in the meantime prepare the filling.
I have used mutton filling (you can use any filling that you like) and also upped the healthy and yummy quotient by using lots of mix veggies like corn, capsicum, carrots etc.
now the ingr for the filling:
I onion minced
1 inch ginger minced
salt and pepper to taste.
mix well and pressure cook for 15-20 minutes.
then open the cooker and dry the ingredients.
then take the mix veggies as per yr preference and availability and saute in a little butter with salt and pepper.
mix it with the cooked and dry mutton and keep aside.
Now take out the flour which must've double in size by now and start kneading and throwing again on the clean platform, making a small ball in the end like shown below:
divide the flour into 8 balls
stretch and kneed the balls into a long snake...press it flat on the platform as shown below:
place the mixture in the centre of the long flat piece of dough...
Start rolling the edges towards the inside, forming a cylinder with the filling and pressing it towards inside as you go along...
shown like this below...
(please dont mind the sometimes manly hands that you get to see- they are NOT mine, but of the kitchen help who has to do the steps while I take the photos!!) ;-)
once the cylinder with the filling is sealed then just twist it like shown below...
Now fold it over like shown- something like a figure of 8...
be gentle because the filling might just come out if you are not careful in your handling...
Do the same with the rest of the dough balls and then grease a baking dish...
put all the 8 dinner roll balls in the baking dish.
Lightly brush the top of the rolls with egg whites
In the meanwhile preheat the oven at 150 degree C or 320 degree F
Sprinkle the rolls with lightly toasted sesame seeds.
and bake them for 35-40 minutes till nicely golden brown...
Enjoy with your evening tea and go on, impress your guests!
