Stuffed Braided Bread Recipe - Vegetable Stuffed Bread Recipe

I wanted to make a stuffed braided bread so badly after my braided brioche success..When i made my crispy vegetable buns, i had some leftover dough so used that to make this braided bread and it turned out yummy.

I used the same veg filling which i used in my fried bun recipe. You can stuff this with anything u like, chicken, meat, veggies, potatoes and anything u want. Will share different version soon.

These braided bread look so good, you can make mini braids and they look even cuter..Since u have to cut this big one into pieces for serving..

Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..

Preparation Time : 15 mins
Cooking Time : 20 to 25 mins
Rising Time : 1 hour
Makes : 12 to 15 buns


Milk - 2 to 3 tblspn for brushing on top
Cheese - as needed (optional)

For Dough:
All Purpose Flour / Maida - 2.5 cup
Dry Yeast - 1.5 tsp
Sugar - 2 tblspn
Salt - 1.5 tsp
Oil - 3 tblspn
Warm Milk - 1 cup
Warm Water as needed

For Filling:
Oil - 1 tblspn 
Ginger - 1 tblspn finely chopped
Garlic - 1 tblspn finely chopped
Onions - 1 medium size chopped finely
Carrot - 1 finely chopped
Beans - 5 chopped finely
Capsicum / Bell Peppers - 1/2 chopped finely
Peas - 1/2 cup ( i used frozen)
Tomato Ketchup - 1/4 cup
Soy Sauce - 2 tsp
Salt to taste
Sugar - 1/2 tsp
Chilli Powder - 1 tsp
Spring Onion or Coriander leaves - 3 tblspn finely chopped


Start by making the dough. Take yeast and sugar in a bowl, add little warm milk and mix well. Set aside for 5 mins for the yeast to activate.

Now take Flour, salt, 2 tblspn of oil in a large bowl and mix well. Add in the yeast mix in and the rest of the milk. Mix well using a fork. Add little warm water as needed. Knead this to a soft dough. The dough has to be nonsticky. Drizzle in 1 tblspn of oil and knead well.Cover and set aside to rise for 1 hour.

While the dough is rising, lets make the filling. Heat oil in a kadai. Add in all the chopped veggies and saute them for 2 mins. Add in chopped ginger and garlic and saute them well.

Add in peas and mix well. Cook this till the veggies are cooked.

Add in salt, sugar and chilli powder and mix well. Add in ketchup and soy sauce. Toss well. Finally add in spring onion or coriander leaves and mix well. Set aside.

When the dough is risen, punch the air out and knead it once more. Add more flour if it is too sticky.

Now take the dough out, divide it two or three portion depending on the size of the bread you need.

Take one ball and roll it into rectangle, cut both the edges as shown in pic. spoon some filling in the center..and start braiding as shown in picture.

For a variation, you can add some grated cheese over the filling and seal it for a cheesy version.

Once you have braided. Place it in a well oiled baking tray which is lined with baking parchment paper.

Brush well with milk.

Bake this for 12 mins in 180 degree C. Now increase the heat to 220 Degree C and bake for 5 to 8 mins this till give nice colour to the bread.

Remove it and serve warm.
