Whole Wheat Buns (Eggless)

I love to eat bread especially buns, but buns that are available in the market are made from refined flour (maida) and preservatives. So I thought of making whole wheat buns at home and thus be happy because I know it will be healthy for me. Also there is nothing tastier then fresh homemade buns :-)


Wheat Flour-3 cups
Yeast-2 tblspn
Salt to taste
Sugar-1 tblspn
Olive oil-1 tblspn
Warm water -1/2 cup
Curd-1/2 cup
Milk-1 tblspn
Sesame seeds-2 tblspn


Add yeast and sugar in warm water with curd and let it sit for 5 min or till bubble appears.

In a mixing bowl, mix together wheat flour and salt.

Then pour the yeast mixture in this and make a soft dough out of this.

Drizzle oil over this and cover it with plastic wrap or wet thin cloth and let it sit till it is doubles in size.

Then punch the air out of this and again knead it for 5 minutes.

Divide the dough in to equal portions and form balls out of it.

Arrange it in a well oiled tray and cover it with a damp cloth. Let this rest for 30 minutes or till it increase in size.

Just before baking brush this with milk and sprinkle some sesame seeds over it.

Put this in preheated oven (220 °C or 450°F).Cook for 15 min till light golden colour.

Remove this and let it cool down.

Serve with chutney or make burger with it.
