        Coming to today's recipe, Khara Buns or Savory buns my another successful attempt on baking. This recipe was adapted from Rak's Kitchen . She had beautifully explained with step wise pictures. I used instant yeast and baked as mini buns or small sized buns. Thru picture it looks little big but the original size was lesser than they look. And also i tried topping with onion and chili along with the garlic spread. that was also tasted great. Now to the recipe.

  1. All Purpose Flour    1 cup
  2. Wheat flour     1/2 cup
  3. Instant yeast (highly Active yeast)    1 tbsp
  4. Salt      3/4 tsp
  5. Olive Oil     2 tbsp + 2 tsp
  6. Garlic      2 big cloves(finely chopped)
  7. Parsley flakes     2 tbsp
  8. Red chilli Flakes      1 tbsp or more or to taste
  9. Milk    1-2 tbsp for brushing

  • Sift both the flours and add it to a mixing bowl, add yeast instant yeast.
  • Then add salt and oil mix everything well.
  • And add garlic, parsley/cilantro and red chilli flakes to the flour.
  • Mix everything well and using water knead to a soft smooth ,pliable dough.
  • Then again add 1 tsp oil and knead the dough for 7-8 minutes to from a smooth and soft dough.
  • Now apply another tsp of oil all over the dough and cover the bowl with plastic wrap and set aside in a warm place(keep it in oven with lights on) to rise for 1 hour - 1.30 hours.
  • It should double in its size.
  • After 1 hour or after it had risen , divide the dough in to 12 lemon size balls and arrange it on a greased or lined baking pan/ tray and keep aside for 20 minutes to rise again.
  • for onion and shilli spread(optional)
  • Garlic spread    1 tbsp
  • Onion    2 tbsp(thinly sliced)
  • Green chilli    1 tsp(finely chopped)
  • If you want ,can top the dough with onion and chilli spread and set aside for another 20 minutes to rise.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degree Fahrenheit
  • After 20 minutes, brush the dough top with milk or egg wash and bake it for 15- 20 minutes or till the top turns light golden brown.For me it took only 15 minutes )
  • Once done remove from the oven, spread some butter on top of the khara bun and allow to cool for a while and then serve the buns with some more chilli flakes or pepper powder N enjoy with Hot Chai..
