Potato & Paneer Stuffed Yeasted Muffins

Preparing a lunch box for school going kids is definitely a big task for most of the Indian mummies. Thank god, i dont have to prepare lunch box for my kids. Since i want to go through the experience of packing foods for kids, i chosed this week's theme for blogging marathon as Mess free tiffin box. After posting biscottis for a simple snack box and a healthy nutritious sandwich for a lunch box, today am landing to this yeasted muffins.Y i named this beautiful dish as muffins, coz instead of making stuffed buns, i simply went for a muffin tray for making this stuffed beauties, so that you can get a prefect muffin shaped stuffed buns.

I used an eggless, butterless bread dough for making these stuffed yeasted muffins.These yeasted bread muffins stays super spongy even after a day,if you conserve them properly. With a simple salad, this yeasted muffins makes a wonderful lunch box for any ages. I went for potatoes and paneer cubes for the stuffing masala, kids will definitely enjoy the filling and their lunch box.You can definitely see the empty lunch box if you pack this yeasted muffins.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#34.
