Stuffed Masala Buns

Though baking bread is time consuming....I find it very therapeutic ....whenever I feel stressed out.......I bake....The end results of baking is very satisfying...its so amazing to look at what goes inside the oven and what comes out...I can just sit in front of the oven and look at that tasteless dough turn into something beautiful....soft .....spongy ....and above all smells heavenly.

  5. Cherie, I always look forward to your comments - they are straight from the heart & always genuine. I know what u mean by so much love in the swirls :) yeah, u need to love ur food enough to bring out the flavours in a picture & then let the picture do all the talking :) U r going real good, its a pleasure to see ur pics as always. And yes, you can replace Zucchini with grated carrots (although check for sweetness - u don't want them extra sweet). I read in some places that you can add sweet potato or any other vegetable - Iam yet to discover such a combo. Zucchini tastes quite neutral, so I guess it is perfect. Do try bananas - I can't think of a better combo with Nutella..
