Eggless Garlic Buns

As a kid i would wait for evenings to come...because in the evening my Dad would bring home yummy Bun Butter Jam ....or sometimes masala bun they would simply melt in my mouth....i still cherish those times....

Even after growing up still am fond of yummy jam buns, masala buns and pav buns...
So when i came across Eggless Garlic Buns in Rak's Kitchen i was simply transported back to those times...
I simply find reasons to bake...BAKING IS ADDICTION.....

Immediately baked them up and had them when they were still suggested by Raji :)

Since this was my first Bun baking attempt i dint wanna take risk so i just halved the amount of all the ingredients ....But then this bun baking has been my best experience ever ...right from the beginning....this a fool proof recipe....

For original recipe please visit Rak's Kitchen So here is the recipe...

maida 3/4 cup
Dried Yeast - little less than 1/2 tblsp
Water 1/4 cup
Salt 1/2 tsp
Sugar 1/2 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
Cheese grated - 1 tblp


1.Add yeast , sugar and salt to warm water and dissolve the yeast well...let it stand for 5 - 10 will be able to see a frothy liquid ..this means the yeast is active

2.In a big bowl , add the flour make a dent in the centre and add the mixed yeast water.

3.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)

4.Keep covered the bowl with either a clean wet towel or a cling wrap(wrap the bowl to cover it,not the dough). Here i used wet towel method and let it stay for 1 hour

5.Now the dough should have raised double in volume. knead it again a little

6.Now divide the dough into 2 equal balls and arrange it with enough gaps in a greased baking tray.

7. Mix Butter, cheese, garlic and coriander for the spread

8.Make a small slit on top using a knife to fill the garlic spread and spoon in the spread but not too deep

9.Keep it aside in warm place for 45 minutes so that the balls double in size.

10.Pre heat the oven for 180°C

11.Bake for 20-25 minutes or till you get a golden coloured buns.Just cook for needed,over baking makes it harder! - Herei baked my buns for 20mins

Yummy,fluffy,garlicky, cheesy buns are ready
