I feel so good when I having back my camera just now, hehehe. I quickly download old photos in the camera as I wanted to share with you this Roti paun. Roti paun is a small little buns that inside wrap with butter and this is one of the specialty in Kuala Terengganu.
This is the roti paun that I first tasted. It was given by my SIL who came all the way from Kuantan (she bought this during her trip to Kuala Terengganu).
Since I kept this bread in the fridge for few days, the bread turned out a bit dry and not that fresh. Since then I have been thinking to bake my own roti paun.
I was adapted the basic sweet dough recipe from Alex Goh which using Gelatinised method (with little changes).
When the bread hot came out from oven, it was so soft, fresh and good.
Try to wrap the butter filling nicely at the center of dough ball otherwise you will see melted butter came out from bottom of bread. But it is ok if this happened as that one bought by my SIL also have same problem, hehehe..Or you can even omit the butter filling, but I prefer with butter filling as it taste buttery and nice.
