1. Measure carefully, placing all ingredients (flour, salt, sugar and water) in your home bakery machine. The dry yeast probably needs to be placed in a dedicated compartement. Select Dough/Manual cycle and press start.
2. When the dough cycle is complete, remove and place it on a floured surface. Punch the dough down and divide it into 4 equal pieces. Cover it with a dry cloth. Take bench time for 15 to 20min.
3. On the floured surface, roll out a piece to a 18~20cm long oval shape with a rolling pin. Then spread the bacon (50g each) on the dough.
4. Fold the dough onto itself length-wise : the right-most side onto itself and the left-most side onto itself. Both meeting along the centerline. Roll over the dough to flatten it lightly.
5. Fold the dough length-wise once more closing it onto itself form both sides again. Only this time, we are shaping it into a log (instead of aiming for flat). Pinch it with your fingers a little along the centerline to 'stitch' it together. Make all 4 logs in this way.
6. Place the dough logs side by side but not too close on a lightly floured cloth, seam side down to rest. Lift up the cloth between baguettes into a pleat to help the dough hold its shape. Let it rise for about 40min in a warm place or until it about doubles in size (the volume increase actually depends on the temperature).
7. Pre-heat the oven to 230℃.
8. Once the logs have risen, gently transfer them onto a parchment-lined baking sheet (seam side down).
9. Flour the dough logs lightly and start cutting them : Using a pair of clean kitchen scissors, make deep cuts in the dough at a 45 degree angle. At each cut, slide-push the dough alternatively to the left and then to the right.
1. Measure carefully, placing all ingredients in your home bakery machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Select Dough/Manual cycle and press start. While the machine is making the dough, prepare the filling : In a small pot, pour leftover curry or ready-made curry and bring to a boil. Turn the heat to low, add the sifted flour. Thicken into a sauce. Let it cool down to room temperature and set aside.
2. When the cycle is complete, remove dough from the bread machine and place on a floured work surface. Divide into 8 to 10 pieces.
3. Place one portion of the curry filling onto the dough and seal the edges by pinching them together to make a round shape.
4. Spray water and then dip them into the panko/bread crumbs to cover around.
5. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise for about 15 to 20 minutes.
6. Heat the oil in a pan. Put the bread seam side down into the oil and fry them until golden brown evenly on both sides over at low heat. Drain well on a rack.
