Curry Potato Buns

I doubled the recipe from here and made 23 buns.

Starter Dough:
210g bread flour
90g plain flour
20g caster sugar
6g instant dried yeast
240g water

Main Dough:
210g bread flour
90g plain flour
50g caster sugar
1 tsp salt
24g milk powder
1 egg (lightly beaten)
90g water
70g butter, softened

Egg wash:  1 beaten eggs + 1 tbsp water

  • Mix all the starter dough ingredients until well combined.  Cover and leave at room temperature until the dough rises and becomes sticky, pasty and have a stringy appearance ("honeycomb-like")
  • In  mixer, fitted with a dough hook, combine all main dough ingredients, except butter.  Then add in the starter dough and knead until well combined.  Add in butter and continue to knead until dough is smooth and elastic and leaves the sides of the mixing bowl.
  • Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl, cover with clingwrap.  Place it in a warm place to allow the dough to rise until double in size.
  • Punch down the dough to release trapped air.  Divide dough into balls of 50g each.  Cover and let rest for about 15 mins.
  • Roll out each ball of dough and add the curry potato filling.  Seal tightly and place buns into individual paper casing.  Cover and proof until almost doubled.
  • Preheat oven to 180 deg C.
  • Brush buns with egg wash and place a curry leaf on top of the buns.  Bake for about 20 mins.
500g potato, cut into small cubes
1 large onion, minced finely
3 cloves garlic, minced finely
1 pack curry paste of your choice
  • Saute onion and garlic until aromatic.  Then add in curry paste and stir fry for a minute before adding in the potatoes.
  • Add enough water to cover the potatoes. Cover and cook under low heat until potatoes are soft.
  • Remove the lid and cook until curry is almost dry.
  • Transfer potatoes onto a plate and leave to cool completely before using.  (Fillings can be cooked and refrigerate overnight).

  3. wow wow! i love that very very smooth top of you buns... totally appetising. i'd grab a dozen if these were for sale

  4. I have the faintest memory of my mother making these for me years ago!! I'm talking many decades. I should give these a go to surprise her!

  6. 美,美,美!
    Love the nice and round top of your buns Veronica.
    They looks so appetizing and it is so good to go with a cup of warm tea!

  7. The top really really smooth & shinny,pretty,I love it so much

  8. The smooth top looks really crunchy, but your photos are even more tempting! Honestly, if I was cooking, the result never looked so amazing – and definitely not on the pictures! I recently realized how important is how we see the food we are we eating, creative dining events like this helped me a lot: the combination of an ordinary place and professional cooks revealed that creating a dish that looks delicious is easier than I thought and it’s all about the small details… Pretty eye-opening! My favourite one is the last picture with the contrast of yellow and blue!

    1. Hi Petra, thanks for visiting my blog and taking time to write. Thanks also for the kind words. I realised that patience is pretty important in cooking and baking, especially baking. Hope to see more of you in future.
