My mom-in-law bakes very well and while I spent a month with her in Qatar, I got a chance to assist her in the kitchen. We made sesame buns stuffed with chicken mince one day. My contribution to this project was peripheral to say the least. I helped stuff a bun or two. More of a photgrapher than a baker’s aide! I clicked the process.
The mince was chicken keema together with finely chopped carrots, beans and onions. Everything was tossed together in a kadhai with some spices and garlic stir-fried. Easy peasy.
Once the dough was ready, it was time to stuff them up!
A little sprinkling of sesame seeds on top….
And voila! Ready for the oven
After baking on high heat for close to 40 minutes, out they come
Home-made bread tastes different- in a good way! The buns were sweeter and crustier; and the insides were soft but not too soft. Some of the mass-manufactured pavs I buy from my grocer feel like Kleenex!
I must try and bake my own bread at home.
