Paneer Tikka Buns

For the buns:

1 packet quick rise yeast

1 tsp sugar

1 tsp salt

3 cups flour

1/3 cup avocado oil

3/4 cup Luke warm water


Dissolve the yeast in the Luke warm water in the bowl of your kitchen aid and leave it alone for 10 min

Add all the rest of the ingredients to the yeast mixture which should now be frothy on the top. Using your dough hook mix it for 5 minutes. Form the dough into a ball. Cover and let it rise for about 2 hours or till it doubles.

The Filling:

Salt to taste

6-8 garlic pods

1 tsp ginger paste

Juice of 1 lemon

2 tsp Kashmiri red chili powder

Garam masala 1/2 tsp

Mustard oil

1 Bell pepper chopped

Firm paneer cut in cubes


Marinate all of the above for at least an hour.

Then heat avocado oil in your skillet and cook till done.

Your dough should be doubled in size. Punch it down and make 8-10 equal parts. Flatten it out. Put filling in the center and pinch the top closed.

Brush with egg wash (egg white and water beaten together) sprinkle with sesame seeds

Bake at 350 till light golden brown. Please send me a picture when you’re done. I’d love to see your work
