Would it work with a gluten free AP flour? My daughter has celiacs but would love to try these!
Yes, gluten-free AP flour should work just fine and you can do a 1:1 substitute with the original recipe. Let us know how it goes!
If you make the filling before the dough, it can cool to room temp while the dough rises.
These look delicious.. I’m going to try them as written and also with corn, black beans, Sweet potatoes and Mexican spices.
substitute for peanuts? either not or nonnut?
Cashews would be a good nut-based substitute or you could try sunflower seeds, although we haven’t tested either option. You can also just omit the nuts altogether for an extra creamy filling that will still be delicious. Let us know how it goes!
These are a great idea for fusion cuisine. Tried them out tonight as a test run for something to take to holiday parties and they are absolutely a winner. I already had a cranberry chutney and a mint chutney on hand and used that instead of the sauce, so there is room for versatility. Thanks!!
The sugar in the dough is for the yeast to feed. I don’t think make syrup would produce the same result.
What is white whole wheat flour?
. It’s a white whole-wheat berry.
This recipe was good but I think next time I will double the curry powder and red pepper as I think it needed more flavor!
I wish these recipes would have the nutritional information. That would be helpful when counting calories.
Can I substitute honey or maple syrup for the sugar?
These sound delicious! Is there a gluten-free version for the dough?
I used agave, but it adds a bit of moisture.
Can these be frozen once baked?
What nut free ingredient, if there is one, that could be substituted for the can be the peanuts
