Coriander Bread


Ingredients:

Bun:

  1. Strong flour   310g
  2. Self-raising flour   110g
  3. Caster sugar   60g
  4. Milk powder   1 tbsp
  5. Egg    25g
  6. Butter   30g
  7. Salt   1tsp
  8. Instant yeast   12g
  9. Water   200g to 225g

  2. White shortening (Trex)   50g
  3. Plain flour   18g
  4. Egg   1
  5. Black peppers, salt and sugar   1 tsp each

Method:

  • Sieve all the flour on the table, make a well in the middle, spread the sugar and salt on the flour. Add water into the well, a little at a time, mix with the flour. Then add the egg and instant yeast into the mixture and knead it.
  • Knead until all the ingredients have been combined together, then add the butter into the dough. This dough will be a bit sticky, but keep kneading until the dough turns smooth and springy.
  • Then, put the dough into a slightly oiled container, cover with cling film and keep it into a warm place about 27°C to 30°C for an hour.
  • When the dough doubles in size, take it out and put on a floured table.
  • Knock the air out of the dough and cut the dough into 10 portions.
  • Roll each portion into a ball and put on a lined baking tray, remember to leave each one with a gap because it will expand. Then put in a warm place and let it prove for another half hour.
  • Now preheat the oven to 180°C.
  • For the filling, mix all the ingredients together, except the coriander.
  • When the dough is ready, mix the fillings with coriander together.
  • Cut a slit on top of each bun and fill with 1tbsp of the coriander fillings.
  • Bake in a preheated oven for 12 to 14 minutes until a bit golden.
  • Cool it on a wire rack and spread a bit butter in the middle of the bun.

Tips:  You can try different kind of herbs or use cheese or sesame seed as well.
