For this month’s bread bakers the theme given by Sue of Palatable Pastime is Peppers. I like the flavor and taste of Bellpepper . So I made the whole wheat buns stuffed with the Bell pepper.
I used mixed Italian seasoning and tomato sauce with the bell pepper to make the stuffing. Sprinkled some Mixed Italian seasoning on top of the bread before baking , which gives a unique flavor to the bread crust.
Whole Wheat Flour – 3 cup
Instant Yeast - 2 tsp
Salt – 1 tsp
Sugar – 2 tbs
Lukewarm Milk – 1 ½ cup
For Stuffing :
Whole Bell pepper – 1
Oil – 1 tsp
Onion - 1
Garlic Cloves - 4
Tomato sauce – 5 tbs
Mixed Italian Seasoning – ½ tsp
Salt to taste
For Topping :
Milk – ¼ cup
Sugar – 1 tbs
In a bowl mix together the wheat flour , yeast , salt and sugar together .
Add in the luke warm milk to the flour mixture and make a soft and smooth dough.
Cover the top of the bowl with cling wrap and let the dough double . I left the dough for four hours.
In the mean time make the stuffing.
Chop bell pepper into small cubes. Chop onion and garlic.
Heat oil in a pan , add the chopped onion and garlic saute well till onions become transparent.
Add in chopped peppers and sauté for two minutes
Add in the tomato sauce , salt and mix again . The moisture content of the sauce must be dried out.
Add in the Italian seasoning and take off flame.
Punch and knead the doubled dough.
Divide the dough into equal and small round dough balls.
Flatten each dough ball and stuff a spoonful of the stuffing and seal well. Roll into round shaped rolls.
Place in the baking tray and let it for second rise.
Mix the milk and sugar in a bowl and brush the buns with a pastry brush before baking.
Bake the buns in a preheated oven @ 200 * C for 20 – 25 minutes.
Buns can be brushed again while baking with the milk and sugar mixture.
Bell pepper stuffed whole wheat buns are ready to be served.
