  • for dough : Plain Flour (630g) 4 cup
  • Yeast 1 tbsp
  • Dry milk powder 2 tbsp
  • Salt 1 tsp
  • Oil 4 tbsp
  • Egg 1 large
  • Caster sugar 1 tsp
  • Lukewarm water 1, 1/3 cup (Can add 1-2 Tablespoon if required)
  • For egg wash 1 lightly beaten egg
  • Sesame seeds for sprinkling 1-1, 1/2 tsp
  • For Chicken Filling: Chicken with bone, (boiled with ¼ teaspoon turmeric and shredded) 750 gm
  • Onion chopped 1/2 cup
  • Salt 1 tsp or to taste
  • Black pepper 1 tsp
  • Coriander leaves 2 tbsp
  • Green chilies chopped 2
  • All spice powder 1/2 tsp
  • Flour 2 tbsp
  • Butter 2 tbsp
  • Whole milk 3/4-1 cup


Step 1

Heat butter in a saucepan. Saute chopped onion and garlic till soft. Add capsicum and saute again till it goes soft. Add flour, salt, black pepper and sauté for 2-3 minutes on medium heat. Take the pan off heat and add milk. Stir well using a wire whisk. Return back to heat and cook until it thickens for around 10 minutes by continuous stirring.

Step 2

Once it is thick, mix in shredded chicken, green chillies, all spice and coriander leaves. It will be sticky at this point. But once it is cooled down completely, it will be fine. Remove the filling from heat and let it cool down completely.

Step 3

Meanwhile flour the working surface. Roll the dough into rectangular shape to a thickness of 6mm – 1cm depending on how thick you like your bread. Place the filling in the center of the dough, horizontally leaving around 2 ½ inch space on both ends. Snip the edges with scissors or knife and fold each snipped part from each side so that they overlap each other, making beautiful pleats. Tuck the ends tightly

Step 4

Transfer the bread on a cookie sheet lined with baking paper. You can also place the rolled dough on the baking sheet, then do the filling and pleating on the sheet if you find harder to transfer the filled bread on to the sheet from the work surface. Brush the top with 1 beaten egg, sprinkle sesame seeds

Step 5

Bake the bread at 190 degree C for 30 – 35 minutes or until it turns golden all over. Take it out of oven, brush all over with butter, whilst hot and let it rest for 5 minutes. Serve with roasted or boiled vegetables, Mayonnaise and ketchup.
