Curried stuffed buns . Anything that’s stuffed excites me and i get super thrilled . I am crazy about stuffed things from spring rolls , samosas , puffs so on and so forth . Stuffed buns . This is my first try . The results were not bad for a first try as the shape and look turned out pitch perfect but the texture was not as soft as i expected them to turn out . I guess it s my fault as i was so impatient to let the dough rise as demanded . I always has a big question in mind as to how does the filling get into the bun in my initial stages when i started to cook . Feels great to think about my culinary journey and non – stop foodie adventure from where i started to till date . But my hunger for knowledge in this field gets more and more and i have a never ending craving passion towards food . The preparation of good food is merely another expression of art . one of the joy’s of civilized living with inspiration drawn from all over the globe and the simplest things like colored candies at home .
