It looks quite an ordinary bread besides its gigantic size but when you cut the bread open, you will find these delicious curry chicken wrapped in parchment paper or aluminium foil inside the bread. Unlike the normal curry chicken buns, the filling has to be wrapped with paper or foil otherwise the curry gravy would leak out from the dough and i dont think we can actually shape the dough without wrapping the chicken first. You can use your favourite bread recipe to make this, put the wrapped curry chicken in after the first proof of your dough when you want to shape the bread. After putting the chicken inside, you can then shape your loaf and wait for 2nd proof and then send to bake. You can also use your favourite curry chicken recipe to make this, i had used mixed chilli and curry paste to cook mine this time. By the way, the bread recipe that i used here is quite a good recipe, straight dough method, nice bread, you can use this recipe for your other bread or buns fillings.
450gm bread flour
25gms milk powder
15gms instant yeast
1/2 tsp salt
1 large egg, beaten mixed with 130ml cold milk + 130ml cold water
1.Add all ingredients A into a mixing bowl of a machine and use a fork to stir till well mixed. Using a dough hook, add in ingredients B slowly and beat roughly for about 5 minutes until it forms a moist firm ball.
2.Add in butter and beat for around 5-10 minutes until the dough looks smooth. Remove dough into slighly floured table and mould into a big ball and let it proof for about 35-45 minutes.
3.After proof, lightly knead the dough again and let rest for another 10 minutes.
4.Roll out the dough into a big round or rectangle depending on the shape you want, put the wrapped chicken at the center and seal the dough by bringing the edges together and pinch and seal them tightly. Transfer this to your baking tray and let it rise for another 40-45 minutes.
