I have many more ideas of dressing up the leftovers but I think I will reserve those ideas for a later time. Folks at home have made it a point to ensure that there are no leftovers :) They know now the cost/result of leftovers !! So for Day 7 of  Srivalli's Blogging Marathon - Edition 9, check out these healthy buns with leftover Mixed vegetable curry. Also take a peek at my fellow marathoners here.
The past week has been an interesting experience for us. If you have missed any of them here is the list..

Watch out for some interesting soups and salads the whole of next week starting tomorrow!!

Mixed Vegetable Stuffed Buns

Ingredients -

Leftover Mixed Vegetable Curry 2 cups (It could be any curry which is dry or just about moist)
Whole Wheat Flour 2 1/2 cups
All Purpose Flour / Maida 1/2 cup
Active Dry Yeast 1 Tbsp
Oil 2 Tbsp
Warm Milk 1 1/4 cup
Salt as needed
Sugar 1 tsp

Method Of Preparation -

In a small bowl, add warm milk, sugar and yeast and set it aside in a warm place to froth up.

Meanwhile in a deep mixing bowl, mix the flours and salt. Slowly add the yeast mixture and knead into a smooth dough spraying oil as needed to keep the dough from sticking.

Knead the dough for about 5 minutes and oil the bowl and roll the dough so that the oil is well coated on the dough.

Cover the bowl and keep it in a warm place so that the dough rises well.(About couple of hours)

After the dough doubles in quantity, deflate the dough and knead for another minute or so.

Divide the dough into 12-15 parts and roll each of them into 4-5 inch discs.

Place about 1 tablespoon of the leftover curry in the center and gently gather the edges to seal the roll.

Repeat for the remaining dough.

Brush the tops with milk and sprinkle sesame seeds. Arrange all the rolls on a baking sheet at least 2-3 inches apart and cover them with a foil.

After about 45 min Preheat the oven to 400 F and bake them for 12-15 minutes.

Serve warm. I am sure the kids and adults will love them!
