Plain Flour- 1 cup
Wheat flour 1 cup
Warm Milk-1/2 cup (as required to make a smooth dough)
Yeast 1 ½ teaspoon
Luke warm water 1/8 Cup
Butter 40 gms
Sugar 1/8 cup
1 eggs (for the dough and little for final coating)
Shredded coconut-3/4 cup
Tutti fruti & currants & cashew nut chopped-1 cup
A pinch of cardamom powder, few drops of vanilla essence and a drop of any desired colour(optional)
Sugar-2 Table spoon
Mix everything together
Mix yeast in 1/8 cup warm water and keep aside to rise.
Add warm milk, eggs, butter, sugar, salt and the risen yeast mix well.
Add flour to the mixture and mix well for 10 minutes till the dough is smooth.
Keep aside, in a greased bowl for 2 hours covered with a wet towel for the dough to rise.
After two hours knead the dough again for 5 minutes and divide the dough into 2, pat down each rolls into two large ¼ inch round shapes.
Spread the filling over one, leave 1 cm from the edge.
Cover with the second dough spread and seal the edges well using a fork, and keep aside for another 30 minutes.
Just before baking brush the top of the shaped dough with beaten egg, and make few slits on top for vapors to escape.
Bake in a pre heated oven at 180 – 200 C for 25 to 30 minutes…
Slice and enjoy
