Can you believe that apart from the proofing of the dough, they just take 15 mins on the gas stove to make bread. These buns are so easy to make and for those who don't have an you can make bread on tawa.

While living in Coorg; during monsoons there was always power shortage and I used to make this for Nidhi mostly as an after school snack...which Nidhi gently reminded me when she read about the recent issues of bread. And yes, I thought sharing this would help moms who want to bake bread without oven.

Please do not copy, create your own style.  Pls understand that a lot of energy, time, and hardwork is into this little passion of mine. Thank you for understanding.

Flour: 1 1/2 cups
Salt: 1/2 tsp

Instant Yeast: 1/2 tsp
Sugar: 1 tbsp
Ghee : 1 tbsp, extra as needed.
Onion: 1, chopped
Green chilli: 1/2
Ginger: 1/4
Garlic: 3
Kashmiri chilli powder: 1 tsp
Turmeric powder: 1/2 tsp
Garam Masala: 1/2 tsp
Salt: 1/2 tsp
Coriander leaves: 2 tbsp chopped.
Oil: 1 -2 tbsp
Chicken: 300 gms (with bones)
Waater: As needed.

Into a bowl add in the flour and salt, mix with a spoon.
Now make a well in the center, add in warm water, yeast, and sugar. Mix with a spoon first and then slow mix with hand to make into a rough dough.
Add ghee and then knead the dough a few times.
Place it back on the bowl and let it sit for 2 hours.
After 2 hours knead the dough lightly and roll into balls/buns and then flatten each ball into round shape and put chicken filling in the middle and seal and then place on the greased skillet. Keep each balls a little apart as these will rise again after 30 mins.
After 30 mins, place the skillet on the gas and switch on the flame. Put the flame to the lowest and cover it with the lid wrapped in cloth. (check video)
Keep it on flame for 10 mins, but after 10 mins check to see whether everything is fine.
After 10 mins flip the balls to the opposite side and again cover and cook for 5 mins.
Once baked remove them to a wire rack and allow it to cool.

To prepare the chicken filling:
First cook the chicken with water, chilli powder, garam masala, turmeric, and salt. Once the chicken is cooked, debone them (shred the chicken).
Heat a kadai or pan with oil, add in onion, ginger, garlic, and green chilly. Saute till light golden brown and then add in the chicken pieces.
Mix well for 5 to 7 mins and lastly add in chopped coriander leaves. Allow this to cool completely.
