I did not have the idea of making this in the
pan ,till all was set to go into the oven.
Yes, i wanted to make fish buns for dinner.
I have made pan pizza successfully before,but
still i was a little hesitant ,and made just one
for a sample,and tasted.It was really awesome,
very soft and fluffy.I took the time and made
one by one in my egg frying pan,and it was
more than worth the try and time.
So now i’m really excited to share the recipe .
For the dough
500 gm flour
2 tsp.yeast (fermented in 1/2 cup warm water
and 2 tblsp.sugar)
2 tblsp.butter melted in 2 cups warm milk
1/2 tsp.baking soda
Mix all these together and form a soft
Set aside for 1-2 hours .
Knead well again and allow to rest for another
Divide into portions (makes 12).
Flatten the dough and keep filling inside ,seal
the edges ,and flatten again with your palm.(use flour for rolling ).
Heat pan ,put the flattened dough and cover
with a lid,and cook on a slow flame.
(you can add butter or little oil if you like.)
Ceramic coated pans are excellent for making
these buns .
Turn over and remove lid.It will pop up in size .
Once cooked remove.

water (Remove bones and flake)
