Kampar Curry Chicken Bread Copycat 金宝咖喱面包鸡

Curry chicken bread is one of the most famous signature food in Kampar, Perak. It normally comes with either two to three flavours which included herbal chicken, curry chicken & lamb curry, wrapped inside a soft & fluffy bread dough. I remember my first attempt, it was 4 years ago. And this is my 3rd attempt after my 4 long years. I'm glad I'm still be able to work out a wonderful Indian curry for this recipe. Hubby is not a big fan of bread though. However, he takes only the curry chicken with white rice. haha....  while my children & I quickly dig into the curry with the hot steamy bread. Hmmm.... yumm.... simply irresistible !

Ingredients for curry chicken :
1/2 portion from the following recipe, click here.

Method :
once its done, leave to cool then wrap curry chicken with a plastic sheet (size : 17x17") and tide it up with a non-plastic string.

Ingredients for bread dough :
300gm  all purpose flour
300gm  bread flour
90gm   sugar
3-1/2 tspn  yeast
300ml   milk
1 egg
60gm  cold butter, chopped
1 tspn  salt

Method :
(1)  combine flour, sugar and yeast into a big mixing bowl then mix well.
(2)  stir in milk and egg till a sticky dough is form then add in butter and salt and knead till smooth.
(3)  leave dough to rest for an hour or till double in size, then punch to release air and knead till smooth.

* Glazing :  1 egg beatened and some sesame seeds for topping
Note  :   I've been using wax paper, aluminium foil and the latest one with plastic sheet to wrap the curry fillings. I came across that wax paper & plastic sheet works better. However, hubby said plastic sheet is not encourageable. So, wax paper should be the best.

(4)  next, place dough to slightly floured working table and roll it out flat to fit the curry chicken parcel.
(5)  now, wrap curry chicken parcel with flatten dough and seal it. Do make sure there's no holes around the bread dough.

(6)  finally, brush with egg glazing then sprinkle on the sesame seeds, and bake at preheated oven 180'C for about 20-25 minutes.

And here's what happened after 25 minutes ! My curry chicken bread finally turns out beautifully

Oh yes, looks really presentable and love the curry gravy too.

Come on.... you're most welcome to join me !  Enjoy everyone & Happy Baking.
