This recipe was developed for the Home Bakery Virtuoso® Breadmaker (BB-PAC20), Home Bakery Supreme® Breadmaker (BBCC-X20/BB-CEC20) and the Home Bakery Mini Breadmaker (BB-HAC10). Adjustments may be required for making this bread in other models of the Home Bakery.


Following the instruction manual, prepare the dough using the ingredients listed.


Prepare the filling. In a small pan, simmer the ready-made curry and mashed potato over low heat until it thickens, and add the bread crumbs. If there are large pieces of vegetables, break them into smaller pieces. Allow to cool slightly.


Divide the filling into 12 for the 2-lb. breadmaker, or into 8 for the 1-lb. breadmaker.


When the DOUGH course completes, remove the dough and divide into 12 for the 2-lb. breadmaker, or into 8 for the 1-lb. breadmaker, and shape into a ball. Cover with a damp cloth and let rest for 20 minutes.


Flatten each dough into an oval and place the filling. Fold in the edges and seal in the middle.


Flip over and press with the palm of your hand to flatten slightly.


Brush with egg or water on all sides and coat with bread crumbs.


Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and allow to double in a warm place (about 30-40 minutes at 95°F).


Deep fry the bread in oil heated to 360°F. Turn the bread over a few times and cook until golden brown.
