Healthy Baked Curry Bread with Leftover Curry

Healthy Baked Curry Bread with Leftover Curry

You can coat them in a batter and deep-fry them... or, simply bake them! Use up your leftover curry and enjoy for a weekend lunch.

Ingredients: 12 buns

Leftover curry
2 servings
5 tablespoons
Olive oil
to taste
Bread dough
Bread (strong) flour
400 g
30 g
30 g
6 g
Dry yeast
8 g
Water (approximately 30°C)
130 ml
Milk (approximately 30°C)
130 ml


1. Roughly chop the vegetables and meat from the leftover curry. Put all the ingredients for the bread into the bread machine, and turn on the dough setting cycle. Allow the dough to rise.
2. After the 1st rise, deflate and form into a ball. Divide into 12 portions, form them into smooth balls, let rest for 15 minutes covered with a damp cloth.
3. Flip the dough over, seam side up, flatten out to remove gas and shape into a flat oval. It will be easier to seal them if you leave the edge thicker of one side.
4. From the thicker side, pinch the edges.
5. And seal them up like this.
6. If you don't seal them tightly, the filling will ooze out during proofing or while baking.
7. Gently press down with the seam side down.
8. Spray and wrap, allow to rise, until 1.5 times larger the original size. After rising, brush with beaten egg, sprinkle on panko and if you like, you can drizzle on some olive oil.
9. Bake in a preheated 180°C oven for 15-18 minutes on the middle rack. Check for the golden brown color and rotate the baking tray 180°.
10. This is how it looks when cut.
11. If you don't have enough curry filling, add processed cheese to the curry. They will be tasty as well.

Story Behind this Recipe

I had leftover curry so I prepared my curry bread to deep-fry. Unfortunately, I didn't have enough bread crumbs so I decided to bake them. The curry breads came out light and surprisingly delicious!
