How to Make Masala Buns

  • Combine flour with salt and turmeric powder. Rub in the butter.
  • Dissolve sugar in warm (not hot) milk . Mix in the yeast.
  • Add the yeast mixture and egg to the flour mixture.
  • Add enough warm water to make very soft dough.
  • Knead the dough very well till it is smooth, shiny and elastic.
  • Keep the dough covered in a lightly greased bowl, till it rises to double its volume.
  • (The rising time will depend on the room temperature.)
  • Meanwhile, heat the oil in a small fry pan and add cumin seeds.
  • When they splutter, add green chili, curry leaves and coriander.
  • Fry for few seconds and remove from fire. Allow to cool.
  • Knead the risen dough lightly and roll out to a 1.5 cm thick sheet.
  • Sprinkle the fried ingredients evenly over it.
  • Roll up the sheet (like Swiss roll) and cut into 3cm thick slices.
  • Flatten the slices slightly and place well apart on a greased baking tray. Sprinkle lightly with warm water and leave aside till they double in volume.
  • Meanwhile, heat the oven to 200 C.
  • Place the risen buns in oven and bake till done, about 12-15 minutes.
