Ingredients For Burger Buns:
All Purpose Flour 1.75 c
Instant Yeast or Active Dried Yeast 1 tbsp
Curd 1/4 cup
Baking Soda 1/4 tsp
Butter 2 tbsp melted
Sugar 2 tbsp
Salt 1/2 tsp
Warm Water 1/3 cup to 1/2 cup
Milk for brushing
Sesame seeds for topping
Begin proofing the yeast with 1/3 cup of warm water.
Mix yeast and sugar in the warm water and set aside for 10 mins or until it froths up.
In a large mixing bowl, add the flour, baking soda and salt and combine well.
Make a well in the flour.
Now, add the proofed yeast, curd, melted butter and mix the dough.
Knead to get a smooth soft dough. Takes about 7 to 8 mins.
Once done, transfer to a greased bowl and cover with cling wrap or a damp kitchen towel and let it rise until double in volume. Takes anywhere between 1 hour to 2 hours depending on the weather.
Once risen, punch the dough and divide the dough into 15 parts and shape them into rounds.
Place them about 1 inch apart on a baking tray lined with 2 to 3 layers of parchment paper or tin foil and cover them with a damp towel and let them rise until double. Again takes 45 mins to 1 hour depending on the weather.
Towards the end of the second rise, preheat oven to 180 c.
Once the rounds have risen, brush them with milk and top them with sesame seeds and bake for 12 to 15 mins or until tops are golden.
Once baked, remove and cool completely.
Enjoy with your favorite relish and some cucumbers and tomatoes in between or enjoy them as they are.
