Instructions
For Food Processor Use
  1. Put the fish in your food processor and process until coarsely chopped, then add the curry paste, egg, sugar, salt, and corn starch and process until well blended. Stir in the beans, cilantro, and kaffir lime leaves (if using those).
For Meat Grinder & Hands Use
  1. Run the fish through your meat grinder using the coarse plate (the wagon wheel). With the ground fish in a mixing bowl, add the curry paste, egg, sugar, salt, and corn starch and mix with your hands to completely mix everything together. Stir in the beans, cilantro, and kaffir lime leaves (if using those).
Continuing On...
  1. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  2. After 30 minutes have passed, get the bowl and shape fish mixture in balls then flatten to make the fish cakes.
  3. Heat the oil in a non stick pan, when the oil is hot, add the fish cakes (in batches) and cook for about 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
  4. Garnish with lime wedges. Serve as a side with any Thai main dish, such as a curry over rice.

Instructions
  1. Slice the onion into 1/4 inch slices, then separate into rings and set them aside.
  2. In a gallon size zip lock bag, add the flour, salt, and baking powder, zip closed and shake to mix. Add some onion rings, zip closed and shake to coat the rings, remove and set the coated rings aside, repeat with the remaining onion rings.
  3. Once all the rings are coated with flour, add the egg and milk to the zip lock bag, close and squish that up with your fingers. Add some rings, lock the bag and squish around to coat, remove to a wire rack over foil to drip. Repeat for the remaining rings.
  4. While waiting for the rings to drip, go ahead and heat a large deep pan with oil or a deep fryer with oil, heat to 180 C (350 F), and add the bread crumbs to a shallow bowl.
  5. While the oil is heating, place a few rings on the breadcrumbs and coat well, tap off excess, and set aside. Repeat with the remaining rings.
  6. When the oil is hot, add a few rings at a time and fry for 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown, remove to paper towels to drain and continue with the rest of the rings. Rings just went in during this photo.
  7. Serve and enjoy.

I used to make this type of coffee cake when I was little and learning to cook. This sounds pretty close to what I made, and I tested this out on 2 Jan 2018 and yep, this is really close to what I made, it is excellent. Now there is a story to the photos, the photo of the batter in the pan with the topping before the oven, picture perfect, after I put it in the oven, about 10 minutes later, I realized I had not opened my new bottle of baking powder! Since this cake was for my mother in law's birthday, removed the pan from the oven, scraped out the contents for the compost pile and let the pan cool while I prepared a new batter and topping mix. As I was making the batter, my wife walks through the kitchen and says, mother in law likes very little sugar, so go easy on the topping. The second cake is the cooked photo, with little topping. Mother in law took one bite, instant thumbs up from her!

This is from a good American friend, Brian, who lives in northeastern Thailand, and he makes these often. Brian's words "Being that I live in Thailand, in a place that does not have a bakery around the corner, making my own hamburger buns allows me to enjoy a burger with a proper bun." And Brian is very correct, want a proper bun for a burger here, you have to make it yourself. I know Brian well, if he provides a recipe or shortcut to my site, he makes it often.

Ingredients
For the Buns
For the Tops
Servings: buns
Instructions
  1. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the yeast and 1/2 cup of the flour. Add the luke warm water and mix together. Let this set for 10-15 minutes or until the mixture is foamy and bubbly.
  2. To the flour mixture, add the egg, butter, sugar, salt, and whisk together until well combined.
  3. Add 2 1/2 cups of the flour. IF using a standup mixer, use the dough hook and kneed for 6-8 minutes, add flour as needed until the dough comes together and has come free of the sides of the bowl.
  4. IF mixing by hand, mix in the bowl until the dough comes together, adding flour as needed until the dough comes free from the sides of the bowl, turn out dough on a clean surface and kneed with hands for about 10 minutes, use flour as needed until the dough is tacky but comes free of the work surface.
  5. Oil a large bowl (large enough to allow the dough to double in size), and place the kneeded dough inside in the bowl, cover the bowl with a towel and set aside for about 2 hours to rise and double in size.
  6. Punch down the down and remove the dough from the bowl to a lightly floured work surface. Shape the dough into a rectangle or circle and cut into 8 equal size pieces. A pastry cutter works well, and a digital scale is a bonus to ensure you get equal sizes. Line a baking sheet with parchment or lightly flour just the sheet.
  7. Using floured hands, form each dough piece into a ball, then take each ball and form into a disk about 1/2 inch thick, place each disk on the baking sheet evenly spaced.
  8. Lightly flour the tops of the disks and cover with a towel. Let rise for an hour or until doubled in size.
  9. About 20 minutes before buns have risen, preheat your oven to 190 C (375 F).
  10. Whisk together the egg and milk. Remove the towel from the rolls and using a pastry brush, lightly coat the top of each bun. Sprinkle with sesame seeds if desired.
  11. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and place buns on a rack to cool.
  12. Enjoy!

  1. Place ingredients in your bread machine in the order listed. Set to dough function and note the time until the cycle is completed. Keep an eye on the dough for the first few minutes, if it appears to dry, add a tablespoon of milk at a time until the dough comes together to a ball. I used two additional tablespoons of milk, this photo is about 10 minutes into the cycle.
  2. When the dough cycle is complete, roll dough out onto a lightly floured surface, cut into 8 or 10 equal portions (9 fit perfect in a 8x8 baking dish), shape into balls, and place in a baking dish with a sheet of parchment on the bottom, lightly dusted with flour as well. Let rolls rise.
  3. Preheat your oven to 180 C (350 F). When the rolls have risen, bake for 20-25 minutes or until nice and golden brown. Brush with melted butter when you remove from the oven.
