  7. Shape dough into ball and cover in cling wrap. Leave the bread in a hot place for 25 -35 mins to proof. One way is to put it in an oven with a cup of boiling water (without turning on the oven)

Now while waiting for the dough to ferment, let's work on the filling!

  1. Put all group C ingredients into a bowl and microwave for 2 mins, stir then microwave for another 2 mins. Alternative put in a pot and boil it for about 5-10 mins while stirring.
  2. Once the filling thickens, cover with cling wrap and put in freezer to cool down. After it's cooled down, split into 6 portions.
  3. Cut the camembert cheese into 6 pieces
  4. Now take out your dough to see if it's ready! Use a finger poke the dough, if it's doesn't collapse, means it's proofed and ready.
  5. Degas the dough by punching it.
  6. Use a weighing scale to divide the big ball of dough into 6. Reshape it into balls and place under cling wrap to rest for 10 mins.
  7. Get the egg wash bread crumbs ready in separate bowls.
  8. Take the small balls of dough now and flatten it into 12cm circles
  9. Place the cheese and curry filling in the middle.
  10. Pull up the dough to the middle and seal the seam tightly.
  11. Coat the outside with egg wash then with bread crumbs
  12. Place it on a baking tray (opening seam side facing downwards). Press a little and shape it here.
  13. Cover the baking tray to let it proof again for 15 mins. Meanwhile you can preheat the oven to 210 degrees.
  14. Remove the cover and start baking for 13 - 18 mins
  15. You're all done, enjoy!
Get creative and change the filling to your heart's desire. You can also coat the outside of the bread with other ingredients like bacon bits, cheese or mentaiko. The possibilities are endless!
