Custard Buns/ Sweet Buns

When I was baking Pizza was left with some yeast mixture. Then I thought to experiment with it.
Immediately I remembered Deepa's (Hamaree Rasoi) Dry fenugreek buns and bumped into her blog to find the basic recipe for buns. Her recipe was the best. I took the basic ingredients form it and prepared these buns they turned out superb. Here comes the recipe for custard Buns/ Sweet Buns.
All purpose flour/Maida- 3cups
Custard Powder-3ts
Dry active Yeast- 1ts
Olive oil-1ts
Milk -3/4cup
Sesame seeds-few

  • Take all purpose flour in a mixing bowl and add sugar + Custard Powder + Salt and mix well.
  • Now heat the milk to luke-warm( when you dip, it should not hurt your finger), add dry active yeast and wait for 20min.
  • Pour this yeast mixture and butter onto the flour and mix them till they blend very well. Now knead to form a soft dough.

  • Transfer this dough to a greased bowl and spread some oil on the top of the dough.

  • Rest this dough for about 1hr by covering with damp cloth.
  • Now you will see the dough doubles in size. Punch the dough and knead it.
  • Rest this dough for an another 10min.
  • Mean while pre-heat the oven to 350F or 180C.
  • Now knead the dough again, and divide the dough into 8 equal parts.
  • Transfer them on to a greased baking tray, press some sesame seeds on top of each dough-let and brush with some olive oil.
  • Bake them for about 10-15min or until they turn golden brown. 
  • After removing the buns from the oven, brush them with butter/ olive oil for extra shine.
  • Serve them with tea.
  • Here deepa also suggested one wonderful tip to keep the buns soft & just like you find in restaurants  cover them with damp cloth.

I would like to thank Deepa for the basic recipe. Hope you all like my recipe. Keep visiting my blog for more recipes :)

IDLI batter became watery friends need your suggestions

Morning while talking  to my hubby, I was adding water into over night fermented Idli batter, while talking I didn't realize how much water I'm adding. Few more water drops spoiled my whole batter. Consistency now is thin. I left it that way in refrigerator. I can make utappam but I want Idli, friends any ideas to repair it?

How to make delicious soft bread buns with self rising flour?

We can play with the bread bun recipe. Every one has their own version of making them. I had experimented with different kinds of recipes and came out with my own recipe which is perfect for making soft buns. These buns are perfect for making sandwich/tea time snack. I love self rising flour and its uses, I had already posted pan cakes and cake with self rising flour. It is very easy to use and yields very fruitful results.
Now coming to recipe

Makes 8 medium size buns
Self rising flour-3cups(When measured with 160ml cup)
Salt-1/4tea spoon
Butter-1 cup(melted and measured with 160ml cup)
Egg-1+1 for wash (coat on surface of unbaked bun)

Dhokla with the readymade flour available in the market

Dhokla is one of the dish I always wanted to try, this time I bought some ready made dokla flour form the "Patel brothers" one of the Indian grocery store in our near by area. The ingredients on the pack say that it contains besin (Gram flour) and rice flour. I was little confused, about the kind of ingredients that goes into the recipe. Later I did a little research and came up with my own recipe. It worked, dokla came out wonderfully. I never tasted dokla before, but now after making this yummy and healthy Indian flour cakes, I regret for not tasting them before. Form now dokla always stays in the weekly snack menu of our home.

I feel so dumb sometimes, because I bought dokla flour but forgot the fact that I do not have dokla plates. If your case is same like me, give me "high-5"!! No problem you can use the idli plates instead. Problem solved!  Now coming to the recipe.

Dokla flour- 1 cup
Curd/ Yogurt-1/2cup
Turmeric-1/4 t.s
Chilli powder-1/4 t.…
