Stuffed curry buns

curry stuffed buns

What’s in the lunch box mom?

That’s a common question when your mom is a fairly good cook. I totally remember doing that to my mom every day..and now I hear it too. Everyday!!!

Try answering-“it is a sandwich” and the morning grumpy face goes even worse. So here is to try and tackle that to a smile. 

The recipe for curry stuffed buns is an evolution of put the things in the fridge to good use. Now, my mom did not figure it out so she did the hard sloggy way. But I have to be smarter. So here is my trick.

curry buns

What works?

  • Any style of semi-dry curry (as we don’t want to end up with soggy bread)
  • Hotdog buns or dinner rolls (crustier the better)
  • Cheese…ooey gooey melty mix of mozzarella and cheddar
  • Seasoning of your liking
  • Fresh herbs if you fancy them
Now once you are armed with these, get, set scroll down and get the buns going.

What curries do work for stuffing?

Try these when you are ready
  • Mixed vegetable Indian style curry without much gravy
  • Chole masala (chickpea curry)
  • Roasted veggies with Thai curry paste
  • Thick dal of any kind
  • Stir-fries
Here is my expert advice
Leftover curries work to perfection than freshly made (I hope I made your day).

Make sure the curry is not runny as it will just make the bread too wet.
Mini baguettes also work very well as they hold shape well.

True Seema, every morning the question and the same expression if something is repeated. These buns look delicious and a nice change from the usual sandwiches. A good way to use the leftover veggies. Liked various options that you have suggested for the fillings!!
