      I love savoury baking a lot than baking cake or cookies… I have tried this buns for 2-3 times and I just simply love it. I am now hooked to my pizza base dough and use it as basic dough for other bakes like I have used for Garlic buns and Stuffed masala buns too.This time I have replaced a part of maida with atta with no compromise in taste.This is simple and you can make it for either BF or for tea time snack…
Kara buns


Ingredients
Maida/All purpose flour 1 cup
Wheat flour 1/2 cup
Active dry yeast 1 tblsp
Milk 1/4 cup(+1 tblsp if needed)
Water 1/4 cup(+1 tblsp if needed)
Olive oil 1/8 cup
Sugar 1/2 tblsp
Salt 3/4 tsp
Chopped garlic 1 tblsp
Chopped coriander 1 & 1/2 tblsp
Chilli flakes 1 tblsp
savory buns
Method:
  1. Sieve the flours together in a large bowl and make a dent in the centre. Heat the milk and water little(luke warm) and add sugar,yeast to it and mix well to dissolve yeast completely.
  2. Pour this mixture in the dent, add olive oil,salt,chopped garlic,coriander and the chilli flakes and gather to make a pliable and loose dough.
    Kara bun
  3. Apply oil over the dough and cover the mouth of the bowl with a cling wrap with enough room for the dough to rise.Keep in a warm place for an hour.
  4. After an hour the dough should have raised well(refer picture).
    Raised
  5. Punch down the dough and make six equal sized balls and arrange it in a greased baking tray. Pre heat the oven to 190oC . Till then the dough balls we have made will again rise a bit.
    b4 baking
  6. Brush the buns with milk and bake the buns at 190oC  for 13-15 minutes or untill the top starts turning golden colour.
    after bake
  7. Brush again with butter on top..
    Brush
and enjoy with butter when its still warm!! Khara buns Notes:
  • The dough should be very pliable and soft,if its stiff and tight you may not get soft buns.
  • If your dough doesnt rise then your yeast is not active,you may not get soft buns either.
  • Tastes and smell great even after cooling down.
  • You can add along chopped green chillies too for extra hotness!

  60. Yummy looking buns.

    I tried the same @home. It was a little moist inside (though a toothpick inserted came out clean) and the top was not as brown as yours. Let me know my mistake

    Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  61. try proofing the yeast,i.e; keep the yeast mixture after step 1. If it rises, then ur yeast is active and buns should come out good. Did your dough raised properly?

  64. Amazinggggggg recipe. Loved how it came out. The flavour was just right (not overpowering, not too mild). The buns came out so beautiful and soft with a nice crunchy crust (i used an egg wash on the surface). Hubby called it The Perfect Snack !!!! They were over before i could snap a pic !!! This will now b a regular at my home. Will share pics the next time i bake :)

  65. For all those having an issue with the dough not rising, try proofing it in the oven (preheat at 175 F for 5 mins and then switch off) and place a big bowl of boiling water at the bottom of the oven. This increases the humidity of the oven helping the dough to raise. I live in NJ and was having trouble with rising until i tried this method.
    Hope this helps :)

  69. Hi Raks,

    Can you give some general tips for baking?
    1) Should everything be baked in the lowest rack possible? My lowest rack would be say 1 inch from the bottom of the oven. I always have a doubt if I can use that or raise it to the next rack which would be 3 inches from the bottom.
    2) Do cakes, pizzas, cookies, buns etc need to be baked in the same rack?

    ReplyDelete
  70. Hi priya,

    Mine doesnt have any rack , so i keep at the bottom only. But my friend has OTG and she bakes all in middle rack. Sometimes in upper rack for cookies she said. Hope this helps.

  71. Thanks for your prompt reply!

  74. where can i get yeast from?

    ReplyDelete
  75. How can i use the instant yeast in this recipe?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. If using instant yeast just mix 1 &1/2 tsp of yeast in yhe flour itslef. No need to dissolve in milk. But knead well. Otherwise follow the same. Sorry for my late response. I know I am very late :(

  77. Hi, I wanted to know if we can refrigerate the dough and use it next day morning..

    ReplyDelete
  78. Yes cling wrap it to refrigerate. Next day bring to room temperature and let it raise. Then proceed as mentioned. Since garlic is there, not more than 12 hrs.
