Garlic Buns – Recipe

Garlic Buns
When we bought microwave oven I had a lot of things in my mind on what to bake, grill and all that sort. But to be honest, reheating was all I did. I was too scared to try baking and grilling, but eventually I started giving it a try. Some of my friends motivated me and helped me with beginners tips. So now I am confident enough to use my microwave. Today the recipe that I am going to share is very simple and easy, best for beginners and a healthy evening snack too – Home Made Garlic Buns.

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

  • Add yeast,sugar and salt in luke warm water and mix well ( Make sure it’s not hot).
  • Take flour in a big bowl and make a dent in the center and add the mixed yeast water.
  • Knead the dough with olive oil to make it smooth and pliable (add 1 or 2 tablespoons of water if needed). The dough should not be too stiff and dry- Keep the bowl covered  with either a clean wet towel or a cling wrap (wrap the bowl to cover it,not the dough).
  • After an hour,the dough should have raised double in volume. Again knead it a little to soften it.

  • Make 6 equal balls with the dough 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 it aside in a warm place for 45 minutes and wait till the balls are double in size.
  • Meanwhile make the spread ready by mixing butter,garlic and coriander leaves.
  • Pre-heat the oven at 180°C. Fill the spread in the slit we made in the dough balls before.

  • Bake for 20-25 minutes or till you get golden colored buns, over-baking makes the bun harder. 
Tks tips:
  1. You can either make this bun without the spread like normal pav or add tutti-frutti while kneading the dough to make sweet buns.
  2. Make sure you provide enough gap for the buns to rise.
  3. Brushing milk on top of the bun will give you golden brown color.
