Egg Buns / Buns Stuffed with Spicy Eggs and Onion Filling

This recipe is inspired from the egg puff which I had from the near by bakery. Those puffs are stuffed with spicy onion  and egg filling. Since puff pastry dough are not available in my place, I replaced it with regular bun dough.  The cool thing about this dough is you could pretty much stuff anything in it. This makes a awesome snack for kids too..

I hope you like it and let me know what you think..


For Dough:
All Purpose Flour / Maida – 2 cups / 250 grams
Sugar – 1 tblspn
Yeast – 1 tblspn
Salt as needed
Oil- 2 tblspn
Warm Water – as needed

For Stuffing:
Onion- 2 large sliced thinly
Eggs – 3 as needed halved
Soy Sauce – 1 tblspn
Curry leaves – 1 spring
Chilli Powder -1 tsp
Salt to taste
Oil- 1 tblspn


Start by making the dough. Take warm water in a bowl. Add sugar and yeast in the water and mix well. Let it rest for 5 mins.

Now in a large mixing bowl add flour and salt. Pour in the yeast water and mix well. Drizzle some oil and let it rest for 1 hours till it doubles in size. Knock out the air and divide into equal portions. Set this aside.

Now make the filling..Heat oil and add onions,curry leaves and mix well Cover and Cook till theonion is slightly brown.

Add chilli powder and salt and mix well. Add some soy sauce and toss well. Remove this to a bowl.

Take the dough and spread it into rounds. Spoon the onion filling and egg in the center and fold from all sides.

Arrange it in a tray and cover with a cloth and let it rise for 30 mins.

Preheat the oven to 200°C / 400°F. Bake it for 25 to 30 mins.

After it is baked smear some butter on top and serve..

  18. Suganya:wonderful recipe... can I do this with atta instead ofmaida....also can I try any of ur otherbakes withatta...if yes plz suggest......

  19. @AnonymousYees you can try it with atta..But it will be little dense. but the taste will be good. infact you can use 1/2 maida and 1/2 atta..You cannot substitute atta for every baked goodies.

  20. Thx a lot....

  21. Hi aarthi
    i made these buns
    i couldnt get d buns n brown color n upper layer was a crust...
    what may be d mistake..
    n how much water will approximately be needed to make d dough... i struggled a lot with d dough... The taste of the bun n the filling was super amazing..

  22. @Bala VetrivelI used around 1 cup of water, may be a little more. If you didn't get brown colour. You can bake the buns and grill the buns for a min to get nice colour.

  23. Hi
    I am a big time follower of your blog :) I have tried so many cake and sandwich recipes by you and people have loved it . Thanks for all your wonderful receipes.I have a small suggestion to make , when you post recipe with ingredients it would be very helpful if you specify ... like how much quantity will this recipe make or how many people it will serve. For eg this recipe will make how many buns. Thanks

  24. Aarthi, after kneading dough for how long should it rest & also after folding. Cab u give approx time plz. .thanks.. your recipes are superb. .have tried many..

  25. @SAndra RoseI have mentioned that in the written method. After you finished making the dough leave it to rise for 1 hour or till it doubles in size. The after folding leave it to rise for 30 mins..

  26. Hi AArti,

    I tried this bun yesterday. Filling tasted awesome but bun was little hard and dint get fluffy.. I think reason was in dissolving yeast in water. i use bakers dried yeast. i used normal filter water to dissolve yeast. it dint get dissolved properly.. should we heat the water a bit? if yes can u tell me how much we shud heat? pls suggest.

  27. @shwetha shenoyyou have to use warm water for yeast. it shouldnot be hot or cold. it should be very warm.

  28. Can I make in pressure cooker?

  29. @Anonymousyes u can make it in pressure cooker

  30. hi aarthi..I tried d receipe. ...after keeping the dough for one hour..I couldn't make a roll ..the dough was very sticky..though it had risen..and I followed the receipe. .too...wat could hve gone wrong

  31. @aruthadd more flour and knead till it is soft and smooth.

  32. Nice pictutes. Try coating the puff with egg white before baking for nice texture

  33. Hi, ur recipes r too good.wanted to know which yeast u r using.which brand ....

  34. @Vidya Santoshi use my supermarket brand. there is no particular name for it..

  35. Can this be done in a microwave?

  36. @pam robinsonif u have convection mode u can bake

  37. can v fry this buns instead of baking??
