PASTA BUN



The Pasta bun I have prepared is very simple and easy to make. It is stuffed with Del Monte pasta and vegetables. It is out and out a vegetarian snack – soft, spicy and delicious. It can be served as an evening snack with tea or coffee.

This recipe is specially prepared for The Del Monte blogger recipe carnival on Indiblogger.


Ingredients

For the buns

2 cups All purpose flour (maida)
3/4 tbsp active dry yeast
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp sugar
1/2 cup warm milk
1 tbsp Del Monte olive oil

For the pasta stuffing

½ cup Del Monte Penne Rigate pasta
1 ½ tbsp oil
½ tsp finely chopped garlic
1 tsp soya sauce
1 tsp chilli sauce
2 tsp Del Monte tomato sauce
¼ cup veggies (peas, corn and finely chopped carrot)
½ tsp pepper powder
2 tbsp chopped coriander leaves
Salt to taste

Method

Preparing the dough

Take salt, sugar and yeast in a bowl. Add warm milk and mix well. The temperature of the milk must be hot but of bearable temperature. Stir well till the yeast and sugar dissolves. Set this aside for 10 minutes for the yeast to froth. Take maida in a large bowl, add the yeast mix and knead for a few minutes to form a dough. Add water if necessary. Finally add oil and knead again to form a smooth and soft dough. Cover with a lid and set aside for 1 or 1 ½ hours till it doubles.

Preparing the stuffing

While the dough is resting, we can prepare the pasta stuffing.

Cook the pasta according to the instructions in the packet. When it is half cooked, carefully cut each pasta into 2 or 3 pieces. This will help while stuffing the pasta inside the buns. After the pasta is cooked, drain the excess water and keep ready.

Heat 1½ tsp oil in a non stick pan and add carrots and peas. Stir fry for a few minutes till the carrots and peas are cooked. Transfer it to a plate, add remaining oil to the same pan and stir the garlic for a few minutes. Then add all the three sauces, salt, pepper powder, fried veggies and corn and mix well. Finally add cooked pasta, and coriander leaves. Stir for 2 to 3 minutes till mixed well. Switch off the gas and allow it to cool. The pasta stuffing is now ready.



  
Preparing the Pasta buns

After the dough has doubled, knock down the air and knead for a few more minutes. Grease your hands with oil and divide this into 6 equal balls and place it in a greased plate. Now fill 2 tsp of the pasta stuffing in each dough ball and seal it completely. Make sure that there are no cracks in the dough. After filling, place the stuffed pasta dough balls on a greased aluminium tray 1” apart (as the buns will expand on baking) and close with a cloth or lid. Preheat the oven at 170 degree C with upper and lower rods on for 10 minutes. Brush the buns lightly with milk on top and place the tray in the central rack of the oven with both upper and lower rods on and bake for 20 to 25 minutes at the same temperature. It took exactly 25 minutes in my oven. Allow it to sit inside for 2 to 3 minutes before taking out the tray. Serve warm with milk, tea or coffee.
