Pirozhki, in Russian, means individual-sized baked or fried buns stuffed with a variety of fillings. Initially when I came across this name, I was really intrigued by the name itself. Only when I googled it did I realise that it meant Stuffed Buns. The dough was prepared following the recipe fromRahile’s Recipes. However, I gave my own twist to the filling

I was pretty anxious andkept my fingers crossed till the buns were out of the oven. Even though it seemed fine out of the oven, Icouldn’tuncross my fingers till my boys took their bites. When their faces lit, I gave a sigh of relief. The buns were soft, had a nice filling and were a wholesome snack. Well, after having them, our stomachs were so full that we didn’t require Dinner. Thats a happy ending for the day isn’t it ?

    Dear Mareena, I tried this one…everyone liked it a lot.., but the bun was not soft enough…I mean not fluffy. I will try again and again until I succeed.Do you have any suggestions?…

  11. Mareena Jerrish says:

    Dear Beena, There could be a few reasons for the bun not being soft. The quality of yeast, how well you have kneaded the dough, if the dough is under risen… Make sure all these are taken care of the next time you make them.. Good luck and Thank you for trying
