Make the bread dough in a bread maker. After 5-6 minutes, add the butter. When the dough is done kneading, divide it into 6 portions, cover with a moistened and tightly wring out kitchen towel, and allow them to rest for 15 minutes.
Stir-fry the wiener sausages (I cut a criss-cross pattern on them so that the curry powder will coat them better). Roll them as you cook without oil, and discard excess fat. Season with the ◎ ingredients.
Or you can cook them in a microwave. Discard excess fat after microwaving. (Remove excess fat with kitchen paper, and season with the ◎ ingredients). Let the sausages cool, and set aside.
Combine the curry roux and 1 tablespoon water, and microwave for 40 seconds at 500 W. Mix together really well, add spices of your choice, and mix well. Allow to cool a little.
The amount of curry roux I used this time was half a block (the right one).
Roll the dough out into an oval with a rolling pin, spread some curry paste, and add the wiener sausage on top.
I cut a piece of sliced cheese into four, and added on top of the sausage of the curry bread in the profile picture. Please try it if you like cheese.
Fold over the dough from the top and bottom, and seal the seam firmly. Be sure to place the bread facing the seam side down on a baking tray, and allow them to rise at 40℃ until they double in size.
While checking on the rising of the bread, preheat the oven to 200℃.
When they're doubled in size, cut a line in the middle of the surface. Add ketchup, cheese mayonnaise, or whatever you like on top. (I dusted them with flour (not listed) before I added cheese on top, but you can omit it.)
I brushed the surface with milk and coated with panko. If you place a sheet of parchment paper or an aluminum cup under the bread, it's easier to handle when you coat them with bread crumbs.
Lower the oven temperature to 180-190℃, and bake for 15 minutes. Adjust the baking time depending on how dark and how much you want to bake the bread. I sprinkled with parsley to finish.
This is how the bread from Step 12 would look like when baked. The baked curry wiener bread is done.
You may find this individually packed, small size curry roux in supermarkets. It's so handy. Please use it if you prefer.
"Basil Flavored Wiener Sausage Bread" (Recipe ID: 1597692). It's easy to make if you use dried-basil.
Story Behind this Recipe
I made this combining my beloved flour and my husband's favorites (curry bread and wiener sausage bread). I normally make this a little more spicy at home.
