Chicken Mince Buns

Chicken Mince Buns

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 chicken mince stuffing

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!

 And voila! Ready for the oven

After baking on high heat for close to 40 minutes, out they come

Baked and ready!


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.
