Mini Kampar Chicken Curry In A Bread 咖哩面包鸡

Mini Kampar Chicken Curry In A Bread 咖哩面包鸡




Recipe source for the bread :  Frozen Wings

A few weeks back I made Special Steamed Chicken Curry Pau, which is a modified version of the famous Kampar chicken curry bread. My youngest son, YS has been pestering me to make the baked version. I know the normal size bread ( 面包鸡 ) will be too big for the three of us at home, so I used the same concept of the special steamed chicken curry pau to bake three smaller bread. We gave one to my sister-in-law who lives a few blocks away while we polished off the remaining two bread. 

Yummy, yum! They were truly scrumptious and finger-licking good!

For the bread ( recipe from Lena of Frozen wings )

Ingredient A
450g bread flour
25g milk powder
15g instant yeast
60g sugar
1/2 tsp salt

Ingredient B
1 large egg, beaten mixed with 130ml cold milk + 130ml cold water

 40g butter

Method


1. Add  all ingredients A into a mixing bowl of a machine and use a fork to stir till well mixed. Using a dough hook, add in ingredients B slowly and beat roughly for about 5 minutes until it forms a moist firm ball.
2.  Add in butter and beat for around 5-10 minutes until the dough looks smooth. Remove dough into slightly floured table and knead into a big ball and let it proof for about 45 minutes.
3. After proofing, lightly knead the dough again and let rest for another 10 minutes.
4. Divide dough into three portions. Roll out the dough into three rounds with the middle thicker than the sides. ( See picture below )  Place this on top of the sealed aluminium cups. Seal the edges below the aluminium cups and place each on three different pieces of greased-proof paper. Transfer this to a baking tray and let it rise for another 40 minutes.
5. Apply egg wash (optional) and bake it in a  preheated oven at 170 C for 20 minutes.




 Let the middle portion be thicker than the surrounding edges.
Place this dough on top of the sealed aluminium cup containing the chicken curry. 
This way - It will be easier to seal the thinner edges below the aluminium cup. 



Yum! Finger-licking good!
