Baking is a passion and careful planning will yield delicious food in our kitchen. Instead of frying a snack for an evening baking is much more healthy and the amount of mess involves less compared to stove top cooking. Baking perfect bread and buns is a dream for me and i always want much more perfection . As cupcakes, muffins and cakes have their limitations in our health side baking bread or buns is a chance for lovers of baking. i got this recipe from Domestic goddess wannabe . i loved the way in which she had arranged the buns in the muffin tray. Since i did not have 6 hole muffin tray i opted for my original one so the buns were mini buns. Also had reserved Paneer in my kitchen for the filling , but this was s a sudden task as hunger pangs crept inside us and so i decide to go with just cheddar cheese filling. The original recipe calls for parmesan cheese for garnishing but i used Cheddar cheese alone. Also I used a little wheat flour as i ran out of APF . But i am giving the original recipe and it works so perfect even with my interference .i lined my muffin tray and baked for the safer side.
