Yeah, remember the flaky crusted Charcoal tuna bun I made last year!  Something similar too. I really did made good used of those homemade otak-otak. Are you salivating just by looking at it ? haha.... So, here's what I did..

Ingredients for bun dough :
Starter Dough
400gm    bread flour / high protein flour
3 tspn   yeast
2 eggs, do not beat
150ml   full cream milk

Method :
Stir everything together to form a dough and knead well, set aside to rest for 1-1/2 hours or till double in size.

Main Dough
100gm  bread flour
3 TB   sugar
1 tspn  salt
50ml    water
60gm   cold butter, chopped

Method :
Once the starter dough is ready, stir in the main dough ingredients and mix well till everything is well combined. Knead to smooth then again let to rest for another an hour.
When done, punch dough to release air and knead well. Place dough to a slightly floured working table then divide dough into 10 portions. And let dough ball rest for 5 mins before placing in the fillings.

Other ingredients :
10 sheets  pastry puff
one recipe of homemade otak-otak
one egg yolk mixed with 1/2 TB  milk
1/3 cup   sesame seeds

Roll dough into oblong shape then fill in otak-otak. Put the dough together start from the longer side & sealed, then cover the top with a  nicely cut pastry puff sheet. Set aside to rest for another 15 mins. Finally, brush the top with egg glazing and sprinkle on some sesame seeds. Bake at preheated oven 195-200'C for about 20 mins or till golden brown.

The crust looks so crispy and tempting, isn't it ! Personally, I really enjoy having my bread this way. Simply addictive especially with a cup of hot brew coffee. Yummm.....
