Mushrooms and Prawns Stuffed Long Buns

When we do anything with love, it happy us…. 

Even though I am unable to bake frequently … but when ever I bake, this gives me immense happiness… 

Had some mushrooms in the fridge.. hence used them in this recipe… but any type of stuffing can be used. 

Here is my recipe - 

For the Stuffing  


1 packet of mushrooms sliced 

Few Prawns cleaned and chopped 

1 Onion sliced 

4 to 5 Garlic cloves finely chopped 

1 or 2 Green Chillies finely chopped 

1 pack of Knorr  Sweet Corn Veg Soup 

1/2 tsp Chilli flakes 

Salt to taste 

2 tsp Butter 

1 tbsp Olive Oil 

1/2 cup Milk 


Take 1/2 cup of Milk, empty the packet of the soup, stir and keep it aside. Take a pot, add 1 1/2 tsp butter, as the butter melts, add olive oil, add the chopped garlic, green chilli and sliced onion. Stir fry until translucent. Add the mushrooms, stir and cook for a minute, add chopped prawns, stir for few minutes, add the chilli flakes and salt. Pour the milk. Lower the flame and stir continuously until all the ingredients binds together. Add the remaining 1/2 tsp butter and stir. Switch off the flame and keep it aside.. 

For the Bread Dough 

Take 3 portions of Wheat Flour and one portion of All purpose flour, add a tsp of  sugar, salt to taste and mix all the ingredients together, add a tbsp of instant yeast, mix again, add Luke warm water little at a time and mix it together. Knead the dough well for 10 minutes… the dough should be soft and bit sticky, add a tsp of  oil and knead it again. Apply oil on the dough, cover the bowl and keep it aside and let it proof until it becomes double in size. Once double in size, punch the dough and knead the for few more minutes, if the dough is very sticky add little flour. Divide the dough into 6 portions. 

To Make the Stuffed Bread Roll


Bread dough

Take a portion of the dough, add 1/2 tsp oil, knead the dough for few seconds, press the dough with the help of the palm and spread the dough into a disc. Place some stuffing on the dough, fold in the dough to close the stuffing and make a bun. Place the rolls on a greased tray, or if you have a bun moulds, place the dough in the mould. Cover the bread buns with a cloth for 30 minutes, brush the roll with egg. Give some slits on the bread.

Braised Cottage Cheese / Tofu, Spinach and Dried Mushrooms.....

This time during my trip to Singapore, I happened to pick up different varieties of Dried Mushrooms which are very popular like shiitake, oyster, flower shiitake, portobello and needle mushrooms. Before cooking the mushrooms, you need to soak the mushrooms in hot water for several minutes, squeeze the excess water out and then used them. Mushrooms have a meaty flesh and a woody flavor. If you don't have dried mushrooms, use fresh mushrooms which are available at your place. I have added cottage cheese, but tofu can also be used. Other ingredients that I have used are spinach, onion, garlic, ginger, green chillies, bird eye chillies and seasonings. This dish can be served as a starter for vegetarians... 

1 bowl of mix variety of dried Mushrooms soaked in hot water for 10 minutes and then squeezed them out from the water
6 to 8 pieces of cottage cheese / tofu cut into triangle shape 
1 big Onion cut into cubes
 6 Garlic cloves sliced
 1 small piece of Ginger sliced
2 Green Chillies cut lengthwise 
4 to 6 Bird eye Chillies 
A handful of spinach leaves along with it's stem broken into half 
Salt to taste 
1/2 tsp Black Pepper Powder
¼ cup of Oil
2 tbsp Soy sauce
1 tbsp Honey 
1 tsp Vinegar

Take a wok, add oil. Then fry the cottage cheese / tofu until brown on both sides. Keep it aside. In the same Oil sauté the garlic, ginger and chillies for a few seconds. Add the onions and saute till translucent. Add the spinach and sauté on high heat for a minute. Add the mushrooms, add the soya sauce,vinegar,honey, salt and pepper powder.

Stirred Cottage Cheese and Veggies with Jew's - ear Fungus....

Stirred Cottage Cheese and Veggies with Jew's - ear Fungus....

During my husband's recent visit to China, one of his Chinese business associate had gifted him this dried Fungus... I was curious to try it out..loved the spongy.. rubbery texture. 

Auricularia auricula-judae, also known as the Jew's ear, wood ear, jelly ear or by a number of other common names, is a species of edible Auriculariales fungus. It has ear-like shape and brown colour, it grows on elderly woods. The name derived from the belief that Judas Iscariot hanged himself from an elder tree and is known as Judas's ear... And eventually became Jew's ear, while today jelly ear and other names are sometimes used. The fungus can be found throughout the year in temperate regions worldwide, where it grows upon both dead and living wood. It is popular and used in many Chinese dishes, such as hot and sour soup, and also used in Chinese medicine. It has a rubbery texture and no flavour of it's own...

Peri Peri Grilled Chicken Sizzler servered with Sautéed Mushroom Peri Peri Rice,  Stirred Fried Veggies and Mashed Potatoes.....

Sizzler is one of my favourite dish... I love Jughead  sizzlers... And the Peri Peri Sizzler which is available is my daughter's and husband's favourite... Wanted to give it a try.... 

The piri-piri pepper, known as peri-peri in Africa, has been a staple of the Portuguese table since the Age of Discovery beginning in the 14th century. After Columbus brought the fiery fruit back to the continent from the New World in 1493, it was the Portuguese who carried it throughout the globe. In fact, the chili, including relatives of the African piri-piri peppers, has become so famous, that it’s used in world cuisines. This sauce, found everywhere in Portugal and several of its former colonies, specifically Angola and Mozambique. It can be used on kind of meat. The  piri-piri peppers are Thai bird, red jalapeño, santaka, arbol, cayenne, or Tabasco, depending on availability as well as  heat preference and tolerance.
