Keep the dough in a warm place(near your kitchen stove) undisturbed for 1 hr. Keep covered with a wet muslin cloth/plastic wrapper. By this time the dough would have raised well. Now knead it once again with 1/2 tsp of oil and spread it out using chapathi roller for about 1/2inch thickness to form a rectangle/square. Dust flour if needed.
Now allow it to raise again for 30mins. Then preheat the oven for 180 deg C for 10mins.Keep the tin near the oven for good raising again, it will start sticking to each other.The first pic below is after 30mins, the second pic is after the preheating time. Bake it at 180 deg C for 25-30mins or until the buns starts browning like in the third pic below.
- Water quantity purely depends on the flour so adjust accordingly. Judge the dough such that the dough is slightly sticky.
- You can add 1 tbsp yeast to make to raise even faster. You can even add 1tsp and allow it to raise for a longer time say 2-3 hours.
- The spread can be your own choice, you can even try vegetable/paneer stuffing. You can use the same method for making basic buns too.
- You can also replace the entire 2cups of flour with maida for a even more softer and bakery kind of bun. With full maida you will get a very softer bakery style buns.
- The buns starts browning to golden brown only during the last 10-15mins so dont panic like me 🙂 Check if the buns are done after 25 mins then proceed with the extra baking time.
