Tasty Stuffed buns!

One of the Sri Lankan recipes that I had bookmarked a few weeks ago was these breakfast buns stuffed with a spicy onion filling. The onion and red chili filling in these buns  is actually ‘seeni sambol’ which is a spicy onion chutney very popular in Sri Lanka (at least that’s what my virtual tour has shown me).  This seeni symbol recipe was very similar to the ‘ulli chamandi’ (onion chutney) which is traditional to Kerala. Yeah that is just one of the various commonalities between Sri Lankan and Kerala cuisine.

Last week I had made this onion chutney and since I had some leftover, the thought of making these stuffed buns came to mind. I thought of making them for dinner and so decided to do a couple different variations for the stuffing too.  One was seeni sambol and for the other stuffing, I sautéed veggies and added ricotta cheese. I knew that was a filling that would definitely be a hit with my children. And I was absolutely right! Both these buns were a huge hit!  I did a third variation too with just the veggies without the ricotta for myself (I am dairy free remember? ).  The buns came out so wonderfully light and soft – I am already thinking of thousand other ways I am going to try them again soon!

Bringing these stuffed buns to Throwback thursdays and to Fiesta Friday this week.

  1. Mmm, savoury stuffed Sri Lankan buns! Thanks Indu! Without your virtual tour, we would have never of heard of these scrummy buns. You’re right, there are over a thousand different ways in which to use these and we looking forward to seeing what you come up with next (especially the dairy free versions! 🙂
