Roses Briochées Garnies - Rose shaped mini brioche bread with stuffing | Guest Post by Priya Suresh Akka

Hello Friends, Please welcome Priya Suresh of Priya's Versatile Recipes to DCJ for a wonderful guest post today. Since I am in India now, to keep my blog from going into a hibernation,  I had requested few of my friends for a guest post and they have readily agreed to it.  The first of the posts is today's Roses Briochées Garnies by Priya Akka. It is a rose shaped mini brioche bread with potato and soya kheema masala stuffing. It is a Indian french fusion just like Priya Akka. Indian chef in french kitchen. :) If I have write about Priya Akka then these pages won't be enough. She is one of the bloggers whom I look up to with much respect and admiration and I am really proud to say that I am friends with her now. She is such a down to earth friendly person and was very encouraging when I began blogging, even when I asked for guest post immediately without any second thought, she agreed to it and sent me a post. Thank you Priya Akka for the wonderful post. Over to Priya Akka...

Its a real pleasure to write a guest post to a wonderful sister aka blogger. Divya Prakash, I can talk for hours about Divya. She is a super blogger, a very down to earth person, adorable sister. I love her dedication towards her blog even though she has a cute daughter and a lil super active son who keeps her busy but trust me Divya has the determination to blog about whatever she cooks in her kitchen. She bakes seriously very well and I have list of my favourites from her bakes. When she asked me for a guest post, my brain started working immediately, I want to make a bunch of dishes but finally i ended up with a French brioche bread with an Indian stuffing- A complete fusion. 
Roses Briochées Garnies are rose shaped mini brioche bread with different stuffing in it. The stuffing may be a sweet filling or a savoury one or else just few chocolate chips is just enough for stuffing. Since this bread looks like roses they are called as roses briochées. I prepared mine with our usual potato-soyakheema filling,this briochées tastes absolutely incredible with a mild sweetness from the dough and the spiciness from the stuffing.You can serve this cute looks single serving mini briochées either as starters or as accompaniment along with some salads or soups. Definitely a crowd pleaser,a kid's friendly starter too.Making dough may take more than 2 hours but this cuties gets vanished within few minutes once they comes out of the oven.
