Masala Pockets


A spicy alternative to the same old buns.. the premises are the same, only the ingredients slightly altered to give the most loved tea time a spicy twist. Easy and made within a couple of hours. These tasty treats don’t last too long.. addictive and yummy!!!

A humble line up of: Ingedients

1 tsp active dry Yeast

1medium size onion

2 cloves of garlic

1/4 tsp of red chilli powder

90 mls lukewarm water

1 tsp sugar

1.5 cups white flour

2 dried red chillies (of course)

1 tsp salt

1/4 tsp black pepper powder

1/2 tsp ground cumin

Dissolve the sugar into the lukewarm water and ad in the yeast and stir to mix it through and let it be for 15 minutes..

In the meantime get your onions, chillies and garlic chopped..

Mix these ingredients with the spices into the flour (no pictures my hands were covered with the goods)

You can use a mixer or simply use your hands if you need the work out.. apparentluy I always need the work out..

Once its all combined let it rest and a well oiled bowl for an hour until it starts poofing up and is almost ready to spill out of the bowl

Scoop out small balls from the dough, rolling and gently pressing to flatten out and let them rest again for 15 odd minutes to rise a bit more before you put them all into the oven.

15 minutes later, put these little babies in to bake at 195℃ for 15-20 minutes depending on your oven.. mine took exactly 18 minutes and came out this beautiful golden colour..

Let them cool before you start biting through.. make yourself a nice cup of tea and reflect when was the last time you had such beauties so bronze and spicy.. bliss !!!

Here.. reflect on them from another angle…
