Channa Masala Stuffed Bun

I like to have the kara bun(savory bun) which is available in a local bakery in my hometown.I always experiment with different stuffing,one such hit is a channa masala stuffing.This can be made with the leftover channa masala also and it is a good option for tea time snack, brunch or even on the go.Here is the recipe for delicious bun....


For the bun
All purpose flour21/2cups
Dry yeast2tsp
Butter or milkfor brushing
For the stuffing
Onion1no.(medium size)
Tomato2nos.(medium size)
Ginger&garlic paste1tsp
Chilly powder1/2tsp
Coraiander powder1tsp
Garam masala powdera generous pinch
Amchur powder(optional)1/4tsp
Fennel seeds(sombhu)1/2tsp
Coriander leaves(chopped)as needed
Saltto taste


                 Activate the yeast by adding in a luke warm water with the sugar,keep it for 5 minutes,till the mixture gets frothy.Meanwhile mix the flour with butter,salt and add the yeast.Mix it with milk and water little by little to form a dough.Grease the palms with oil and knead the dough for atleast 10 minutes.It should be soft and piable,cover it with a plastic wrap and keep it in a warm place to raise(turned on the oven light and kept inside).
Meanwhile prepare the stuffing,heat oil in pan,crackle the fennel seeds and saute the onions till translucent.Add the ginger & garlic paste,fry it for a minute.Then add the tomatoes and saute it until mushy.
Now add in the powders,salt,stir it for a minute and add 1/4 cup of water.Let it boil for a minute,add the cooked channa and mix it well.Cook it until the mixture gets dry.Finally add the coriander leaves and turn of the stove.
After an hour take out the dough and it would have doubled in size,punch down the air and knead it for a while.Divide the dough into equal portions and take one ball and press it gently.Keep 2 tsp of the prepared stuffing and cover it by pulling the edges to the center and roll it gently in between the palms to get a nice and smooth buns.
Keep it on a greased baking tray,continue the same for the rest of the dough.Cover the baking tray with a wrap and let it sit for 30 minutes.After 30 minutes brush the top with milk or butter.Preheat the oven at 350 degree Fahrenheit and bake it for 20-25 minutes(mine took 20 minutes) till it becomes golden color.Once it is done take it from the oven and transfer the buns to a cooling rack and apply some butter.
Serve it with coffee or tea for a snack or a brunch.

  • Egg wash can be done instead of milk or butter.
  • Kneading the dough is very important to get soft buns.
  • Channa can be substituted with green peas. 
  • For the given measurement got 8 buns.

Hi, I really loved you Bun recipe with chana inside it.
I tried making it at my place, and it came out good.
For saving my time, i used ORCO Chana Masala while making the chana stuffing for bun. You should also try this it saves alot of time.
