After the super success with basic white bread I am a bit confident to work with yeast, so I decided to try buns, not the Maida bread but something healthy so I decided to make wheat buns. The buns came out well also it is healthy and simple to make. Now I guess I am more confident to play with yeast, it’s not like there was no success with yeast, I was not confident in baking the basic breads and buns that’s it. There are few first successes with bread they were aloo buns and garlic bread. Now I am so happy that I don’t have worry about buying bread and checking whether its vegan or not. Now let’s make some burger buns.
Preparation Time: 15 to 20 minutes.
Idle Time: 1 hour + 45 minutes
Cooking Time: 25 mins
makes: 4 Buns
WHAT YOU WILL NEED
1 cup wheat flour
1 cup Maida/all purpose flour
¾ Th tbsp yeast
1 tbsp + 1 tsp (wheat gluten) (Optional)
1 tsp salt
2 tsp sugar
3 tbsp oil (any veg oil) + 1tsp oil
1 tsp – sesame seeds
1¼ cup Luke warm water
HOW TO MAKE
Take 1/4th cup of Luke warm water add yeast, sugar and let it prove.
In another bowl add the flour, gluten, salt, oil and mix well.
Once the yeast is proved add the yeast mixture with the flour mixture and mix well, add the extra water and kneed into smooth dough. Knead the dough for 3 to 5 minutes so that the gluten forms.
Then keep the dough covered in a warm place to rise. Mine took 1 hour to rise.
Once the dough is risen, punch it down and kneed it for 2 more minutes and then divide the dough into 4 equal parts, and shape it like a bun and place it’s on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. On the buns apply the 1 tsp oil and sprinkle the sesame seeds.
Then keep let the buns in warm place for second rise, mine took 45 minutes to rise,
Once it’s risen bake it for 25 minutes at 425 F. Once its baked let it cool and it’s ready to eat.
Adding gluten is optional, but it’s better to add gluten, specifically for wheat breads, so you get good bread texture.
You can add 1 tsp baking soda too.
Only Maida buns also can be done, which I will be trying next.
