PUMPKIN-CHEESE BREAD


Roasted pumpkin cheese bread,has a texture of

a soft bun.

Pumpkin and cheese combination,is such that

it can be consumed plain.

This was made with fresh pumpkin,toasted in

the oven and puréed . This time I thought to

make a sticky dough,and succeeded to get a

super soft pumpkin bread .While roasting the

pumpkin I didn’t discard the seeds,or the skin.

I made the dough with the seeds .Puréed the

pumpkin with the skin on.The tint of the

pumpkin spread all over the bread seemed

lovely to the eye .

This is my own innovated recipe and

measurements!

Note: As I baked in a silicone bread mould ,I removed the baked bread from the mould and baked again for another 10 mins to get a crunchy crust all around .

INGREDIENTS

2.5 cups flour ( all purpose/ bread flour)

1 cup pumpkin purée

1 egg ( optional)

sides

CHEESY HERB TWISTED ROLL


This is a good roll for breakfast or for a quick

meal .I have posted many recipes of cheese

buns,and rolls recipes.

This recipe is a little different from the

previous posts ,and the difference is honey

replaced for sugar ( to ferment ),and butter is

added to the milk and warmed.( lukewarm).

Now,to today’s recipe with lots of cheese and

herbs . Why I added as ‘ herbs’ to the title,

without specifying one is,because you could

use any type of herbs to your choice like

parsley,spinach,basil,….or your favourite

combination with cheese .You could choose any

type of cheese.

This roll has to be folded with two pieces of

dough with grated cheese,and herbs in

between.You could also use sun-dried tomatoes

Well,I removed the seeds of the tomato and cut

fine to add with the cheese and parsley .

To the recipe now

INGREDIENTS

2.5 cups flour

1.5 tsp instant yeast

2 tbsp honey

50-75 gm butter

1-2 cups milk

1 egg

1 tsp salt

For the cheese filling

1-2 cups grated cheese

Finely cut parsley or herb of your choice

2 tomatoes (finely chopped and seeds

removed )

1 tsp chilli flakes

METHOD

•Warm the butter and milk together.

•Add yeast,honey to the flour and mix well.

•Next add the warmed butter and milk with

salt, and mix to a soft dough .

•Add egg and knead for 5 minutes.

•Cover and allow to rise double .

•After it has risen,knead again on a floured

board for another 5 minutes.

•Cover and allow to rise again .

• Divide the risen dough into equal portions.

BAO BUNS (2 types of fillings)


Bao buns or steamed buns are extracts from

the Chinese cuisine.

Steamed buns can be stuffed with savoury and

sweet fillings .Check link …

https://calinskitchen.wordpress.com/2018/11/20/steamed-buns/?preview=true

This dough recipe is the same as in the link .( click link above for dough recipe )

Just including variations of the filling .This bao

bun has to flattened and shaped like a

semicircle ,steamed with a tiny parchment

paper in between the folds , or cut after

steaming and the filling placed inside .

I love making these buns, for the texture and

taste .

The first variation is a Spiced Paneer Bao

This needs no recipe . Whatever spicy chilli

sauce you have,can be tossed in with the

paneer and used as stuffing,with a little

vegetables of your choice .

2.Used the ‘Caramelised onion and meat

bilimbi pickle for the second variation.

https://calinskitchen.wordpress.com/2020/11/14/caramelised-onionmeat-bilimbi-pickle/?preview=true

Both were awesome !Do try and post in your

valuable feedback!

CARAMELISED ONION,MEAT +BILIMBI PICKLE


The bilimbi fruit is a sour fruit , which could be

used as a substitute for tamarind or tomato.

This fruit is commonly found in South- East

Asian countries,like Indonesia,Malaysia

Sri -Lanka and India.

My routine in the mornings is,to stroll around

my terrace garden,after coffee.

I have a year old bilimbi plant which produces

only few fruits.

Due to rains,I couldn’t go up the terrace for 2

days.

Today I went to grab a few mint leaves,and

unexpectedly ,I saw 2 bunches of the fruit .

You can never express the joy of plucking the

produce from your garden, whether it be a

flower, fruit or herbs.

Happily I plucked them,and thought to make

Seeni sambol ( caramelised onions spiced).

That minute I decided to add meat and make

something like a pickle .Tried a small quantity,

as I have never tried bilimbi in a pickle.

Purely my idea and innovation,trust me it was

excellent. This can be used as a filling for buns

or wraps or served with rice.

Do try this recipe and post in your comments!

I made this with mutton.You could try with any

other meat .

To the recipe now

INGREDIENTS

3-4 big onions sliced fine

10 bilimbi fruits sliced

1-2 inch cinnamon sticks

1-2 tbsp chilli powder

1 cup mutton cut into small pieces

1 tbsp sugar

2-3 tbsp vinegar

Salt to taste

1/4 cup sesame oil

To marinade meat : 1/4 tsp turmeric,1 tsp chilli powder,salt

METHOD

•First mix 1/4 tsp turmeric,1 tsp chilli powder

salt and marinade the meat .

•Heat oil,and fry the meat pieces till golden

brown,and set aside.

•Add the onions ,cinnamon,salt into the same

oil,and sauté till golden brown.Add the bilimbi.

•Add the sugar and chilli powder,and cook for

another 5 minutes.

•Add the roasted meat and the rest of the

ingredients and mix well .

BASIL’N’CHEESE LOAF


Anything with basil leaves is my favourite! Today’s recipe is a crunchy bread with

basil and cheese with a splash of chillie flakes and garlic. The aroma spread whilst

baking makes you more hungry.

As cheese and basil are kneaded into the flour this bread can be served with

butter alone.

Well, if you need extra exotic,you can spread mayonnaise with cucumber or

vegetables of your choice.

This is a no knead bread with less of muscle power.

So,here’s to the recipe now.

INGREDIENTS

2-3 cups flour

1+1/2 tsp instant yeast

A pinch of baking soda

2 tbsp.sugar

1/2 cup milk

2-3 cups warm water

100-150 gm cheese grated,.

Egg yolk to prewash before baking.

METHOD

🌸Add yeast and sugar to the warm water.

🌸Next add milk,baking soda salt,and add the flour gradually to make a soft dough.

COFFEE ALMOND BUNS


This is a ‘wow’ recipe I came across yesterday .

As usual made my changes to the recipe,it was

soft and the coffee taste was too yummy!

The changes I made was,adding almond flour

to crown each bun.As I liked the texture baked

some plain buns too, and served with boiled

egg slices, butter, cheese,pepper and slit green

chillies ( just to get the flavour).This is simple

but a delicious egg bun recipe .

Moving to the subject of this post – Coffee buns.

INGREDIENTS ( tried kneading by hand )

3 cups all purpose flour

2 tbsp sugar

2 tsp yeast

200 ml warm milk

75 gm butter

1 tsp salt

Method

Mix in all the ingredients together,except

butter and bind to a soft dough.

After binding,add in the butter and knead till

the butter is well corporated.

Allow to rise double.

After it has proven,punch down the air,and

knead again for few minutes .

Divide into portions,and place each dough on a

greased tray .(It’s best to use parchment paper)

For the icing

1 tsp instant coffee powder

A tsp of water to mix the coffee

2.5-3 tbsp sugar

1 egg ( lightly beaten)

3 tbsp butter

1/2 cup almond flour

1 tsp cornflour

Method

Mix all the ingredients together .

Transfer to a piping bag,and pipe only half

from the top downward.( as the cream will

spread down .

After making I realised, that I could have

sprinkled some slivered almonds for a

richer taste .

Anyway without almonds,it was awesome !

Do try this excellent recipe .

FINGER MILLET BREAD (RAGI/KURAKKAN BREAD)


Ragi,finger millet,kurakkan( Sinhala ) is a

healthy bread . It was not an easy and good

bake when I did for the first time . The humour

part of the result was that ,even my dog ran

away when I offered him a bite ,it was so hard

and not edible 🤣.Why ?I made it with plain

ragi flour .

Today,I found a recipe with a mixture of wheat

flour and millet flour and the texture and taste

was good .The only change I made was to add

basil leaves and nuts as a topping.

the process to whiten/ bleach it .

to the white flour in cakes,bread,biscuits….and

many more to list .

So today’s recipe is a white flour bread .For me

it’s always random measurements obedient to

my sense of touch and eye.
