How to Make Garlic Buns

  • Warm water and add the yeast, sugar and salt and mix well.
  • After a minute, mix again to make sure the yeast is properly dissolved.
  • Take the flour in a big bowl, make a dent in the centre and add the yeast water.
  • Knead with olive oil to make a smooth and pliable dough (add 1-2 tbsp of water if needed).
  • Cover the bowl with a clean, wet towel or a cling wrap.
  • After an hour, the dough should have increased to double in volume. Knead again to make it smooth.
  • Divide into 6 equal balls and arrange it with enough gaps in a lined baking tray.
  • Make a small slit on top using a knife to fill the garlic spread.
  • Keep aside in a warm place for 45 minutes to allow the balls to double in size.
  • In the meantime, get the spread ready by mixing butter, garlic and coriander.
  • Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees and fill the spread in the slit made in the dough balls.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the buns turn golden.
