Garlic Buns
I love garlic bread from pizza hut very much… When I started eating I used to eat it very often atleast once a weekOh go on. But now that season has gone..Now its time to try it on my own Love Struck. When Suhaina posted her garlic buns,I was so happy and I know I am going to try that very soon. But the thing was,it had egg and I am not yet prepared to buy egg and handle it Silly. (she has a eggless garlic rolls version now updated in her blog) After I mailed her for an eggless version,she was very prompt to help me out and gave all the detailed tips for baking the garlic buns. I just blindly followed the recipe and tried and violaApplause! It came out great!
So this is the second time I am trying this and wanted to write down the recipe here and this time I have halved the quantity…I really loved the buns Suhaina baked for the Singapore blogger meet (Lunch Potluck)we recently had,we all loved the flavour and the taste of the buns she brought hot hot!! As Suhaina have mentioned it so easy and you can follow the same recipe without the garlic spread part and there you got the plain o buns,you can use as phav for bhaji tooHee hee! So try it out yourself,its very easy and comes out nice for beginners in baking like me Batting Eyelashes.So after my Pizza baking attempt,I can tell this is my second successful baking attemptCool.

Garlic buns recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Continental  |  Recipe Category: Breakfast
Prep Time: 1 hr    |  Cook time: 15 mins    Makes: 8

Ingredients


Plain flour/maida  1 & 1/2 cup 
Yeast (Active dry)  3/4 tblsp 
Water  1/2 cup(add if more is needed) 
Salt  3/4 tsp 
Sugar  1 tblsp 
Olive oil  1 tblsp 

For the garlic Spread

Garlic chopped very fine 3-5 flakes
Butter softened 2 tblsps
Chopped coriander leaves 1 tblsp

Garlic Buns

Method

  1. Warm the water(not very hot,just luke warm) and add the yeast,sugar and salt in it and mix well. After a minute mix again to make sure the yeast gets properly dissolved. The yeast dissolved will be like a frothy mixture. If you keep it aside for 5 minutes, it will raise. This is called proofing the yeast. This is a must if active dry yeast is used.
  2. Ingredients
  3. Take the flour in a big bowl and make a dent in the centre and add the mixed yeast water.
  4. Add yeast mixture
  5. Knead the dough with olive oil to smooth and pliable(add 1 or 2 tablespoons of water if water is needed,the dough should not be too stiff and dry,it should be soft,smooth and pliable)
  6. Dough
  7. Keep covered the bowl with either a clean wet towel or a cling wrap(wrap the bowl to cover it,not the dough).
  8. After an hour,the dough should have raised double in volume. Again knead it little to make it smooth.
  9. Raised dough
  10. Divide into 6 equal balls and arrange it with enough gaps in a lined baking tray.
  11. Dough balls arraged
  12. Make a small slit on top  using a knife to fill the garlic spread. (not very deep,more on top)
  13. Keep it aside in warm place for 45  minutes to make the balls double in size.
  14. Raised balls
  15. Mean while make ready the spread,by mixing the butter,garlic and coriander.
  16. Garlic,butter and coriander
  17. Pre heat the oven for 180°C and apparently fill the spread in the slit we made in the dough balls.(I have used less,you can use more garlic spread)
  18. garlic spreaded over the top
  19. Bake for 20-25 minutes or till you get a golden coloured buns.Just cook for needed,over baking makes it harder!
  20. Oven fresh buns!!
  21. Flavourful buns are ready to enjoy,I love to have it when it is still warm Whistling.
  22. Enjoy warm!

Notes

  • Prrofing the yeast is must if active dry yeast is used. 
  • If instant yeast is used, reduce the measure by half and mix the yeast directly with flour and make dough. No need to dissolve.
  • You can try in bread form too…I have to still try myself and later I may update the post..
  • Try the same without garlic spread,to get plain buns or paav for bhaaji.
  • You can try reducing the yeast half the quantity mentioned and keep it for long time for raising.I have not tried this but I saw this tip in Suhaina’s post.
  • I thought next time I can also add hard grated parmesan cheese in the garlic spread! Idea

  56. Hi..i had already tried the palak paneer and it was a gr8 success( had commented on that).. but the bun unfortunately din comeout well...i din get the color on the top of the bun and it was not very soft...wht do u think would have gone wrong rak's. i wish i would get it right from ur tip ur gonna give..thanks for the same..

    ReplyDelete
  57. Hi sathya,I think the water quantity would have been the problem,I got two more feedback as same as yours... I want to know 1) if your dough properly raised 2)was your dough smooth and pliable and the bun dough was looking same as I have shown in the pictures before baking?
    Also please refer the original recipe I have given the link,its from Suhaina's blog,you can refer that recipe too.. Hope You try it out again and it comes out soft. Add more butter in the garlic spread and stuff it half way through the bun and more on the top. Please let me know how it turned out the next time

  78. You have to press the garlic butter through half way and then more on top, this way u can incorporate the garlic flavor better

  89. Hi Raks,

    I tried the buns yesterday. It came hard as stone. I doubt the yeast.
    Could u pls tell me what brand of yeast you used..?
    I used 'Black Bird' active dry yeast.

    I exactly followed your recipe and measurements.
    But couldnt make it.

    Also pls tell me that if the buns could be made with wheat flour..

    ReplyDelete
  90. Hi,

    Tried the bun's today.. Came out well... But only thing is the top of the bun did not change color. It was white.. Don't know why? Can you tell me the reason or what should I do to get a golden brown color on top of my bun..

    ReplyDelete

    1. Try brushing with milk. Some oven settings blow heat only from bottom and not from top. May be that could also be a reason

    1. Yes you have to set the same temperature you are going to bake and preheat the oven, then bake it in convection mode

  94. please help me out to how to do this in convection mode? I am totally confused

    ReplyDelete
  95. You can also use kasoori methi and a bit of cheese for preparing spread mix. Like instead of using whole amount of butter you can use half butter and half cheese. Using Kasoori methi gives a quite aromatic essence while eating .
