Curry Chicken Buns | 12 comments:



Instead of cracking my head over what to cook for dinner,  I made these ........'Curry Chicken Buns', spicy, meaty and chewy!  I managed to get 10 buns and there were some left over for lunch the next day too. This is really killing two birds with one stone!






An interesting note on curry leaves.  These leaves are extremely high in vitamin C, therefore will help clean up your blood leaving your skin with a fresh glow and your hair with more lustre and your eyes with brilliance.  Also they will help increase your level of calcium and iron too.  So the next time when you come across curry leaves in your curry mee, don't discard them, gobble them up, it's good for you!






These were yummy and I will be making more of these spicy buns for sure, perhaps of a different shape.

    Ya, I'm not a 'fan toong' too, prefer to make buns or cook noodles. Find it difficult to take the photos sometimes, because my hand shake!

    High protein flour is for making bread, maybe it's referred to as bread flour in your area. Not sure whether you can use ordinary flour, never tried before. Suppose you can, but maybe the texture will be different, not that chewy.

    Elin, yes they were delicious, ahem!

    Kristy
    Oh yes, they can be filling, especially after drinking a cup of hot coffee!

    Shirley
    Yes, spicy and savoury.

    If I were to do it by hands, tell me
    how to do the mixing of the dough and
    for how long.
    Many thanks,

    1. Hi, I've made bread by hand before. If you don't have a bread machine, perhaps you can view my other recipes using the cake mixer's dough hook. Hope this helps.
