  Bread flour 250 Gram
  Sugar 6 Gram
  Active dry yeast 5 Gram
  Olive oil 1 Teaspoon
  Water 130 Milliliter
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon (To Taste)
  Yellow food coloring 2 Drop
  Olive oil 1 Tablespoon
  Green food color 2 Drop
  Red onion 2 Tablespoon, chopped
  Garlic 1 Teaspoon, chopped
  Carrot 75 Gram, cut into small slice
  Leeks 50 Gram, cut into small slice
  Mashed potatoes 100 Gram (Prepared Or Left Over)
  Black pepper 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Cinnamon sticks 6 (1 Inch Sized Sticks, For Decorating)

For the buns:

Sift the flour. In a mixing bowl combine the flour, sugar, yeast and salt. Mix well about 1 minute. Pour in olive oil and water. Mix well. Now clean your dry working surface and knead by hand about 10 minutes.

Cover the dough and let rise in a warm place for about 30 minutes.

Now, take 2 drops of yellow food color(use your fingers) and mix into the dough. Then take 2 drops of green food color (use your finger) and mix into the dough.

Make 6 round apple sized balls of dough and allow them to rise for 10 minutes .

Now take each ball and roll out with a rolling pin until you get a disk (3-inch diameter and 1/4-inch thick).

In a pan heat 1/2 tablespoon olive oil over medium high heat. Add garlic and mix it around until it’s softened. Next add onion, carrots, leeks and mashed potatoes. Mix until onion is softened and everything is heated through. Add pepper and salt. Mix well.

Now place a tablespoon full of filling mixture in the middle of each dough disk and then wrap the dough around it and cover it from all sides with the dough. Then, pinch them to close.

Place pinched side down on top of oiled parchment paper or baking paper. Then stick a cinnamon stick into the top of buns. I’ve done this in the photo above.

Place buns in a steamer and steam over a pan of boiling water for about 10 minutes. When the apple buns are cooked, remove from the steamer and place on a dish.

Serve warm. Enjoy.
