  • How to Make Palak Bun (Roll) or Popeye Spinach Bun (Roll):

    1. For yeast:
    2. Dilute 1 tsp - active dry yeast with 4 tbsp - warm water and 3 tsp - sugar. Gently stir well. Let it stand for 15 minutes, until it fermented and doubled in quantity.
    3. For spinach puree:
    4. Wash and clean palak. Drain out water completely and boil on a low heat for 5 - 8 minutes until soft.
    5. Switch off the heat and keep aside to cool for twenty minutes.
    6. Transfer this boiled spinach into a mixer bowl and make a smooth paste without adding extra water.
    7. You may get 4 - 5 tbsps of spinach paste.
    8. For the dough:
    9. Melt 2 tsps butter in 30 ml medium hot milk and keep aside.
    10. Place 2 cups of flour in a large bowl and stir in salt.
    11. Make a well in the centre, and pour milk-butter mix, fermented yeast mixture, spinach puree and beaten egg.
    12. Knead into a dough.
    13. Sprinkle 2-3 tsps of reserved spinach puree if required until you have a soft moist dough that can be handled well and soft.
    14. Turn out onto a floured surface, and knead for at least 10 minutes (make an extra soft dough - softer than a soft toy).
    15. Return to the bowl, cover with a wet towel, and let rise until doubled in size, about 1 to 1.5 hours.
    16. Punch dough down. Turn onto a floured surface; cover and let rest for 15 minutes.
    17. Divide into 8 parts.
    18. Shape each into a round bun - roll. Repeat with remaining dough.
    19. Place on greased baking sheets.
    20. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.
    21. Leave 1-inch gap between each bun.
    22. Preheat oven at 375 degrees F or 190 degrees C.
    23. Brush with 2 tsps milk. Bake for 18 - 22 minutes or until golden brown.
    24. Remove from pan to a wire rack to cool. Serve with any accompaniment of your choice.
