Masala Buns/Khara Buns

These buns are super yummy they are soft and delish masala buns /savoury buns which taste great.My family loves stuffed buns more than just plain buns but they enjoy this with a cup of chai..I love to have these when they are hot from the oven with a dollop of butter...

1 1/2 cup flour
1 tsp yeast
1 .5 tsp sugar
1 tsp milk powder
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup milk
2 tbsp oil

For the masala
1 onion chopped
4-5 garlic minced
1 tsp ginger chopped
1/2 cup coriander leaves chopped fine
1 tsp chilli flakes

In a bowl mix together flour,milk powder and salt .
Add the yeast mixture and milk and the masala and knead till all comes together.
Add oil and knead till you a get a soft smooth dough.
Cover with a damp cloth/cling foil and allow it to rise,it may take about 1 1/2 hr to 2
Once doubled in size divide into equal balls and place it on a baking tray lined with parchment/butter paper.
Cover with a damp cloth and let it proof for 30-45 mins
Brush milk before baking.
Bake for 15 min a preheated oven at 180 degree Celsius.
Brush butter as soon as its out from the oven
Enjoy it when its still hot with a dollop of butter /cheese or serve it with a cup of tea/coffee.
For the masala you can add or minus any ingredients you want.
You can use 1 cup flour and 1/2 cup wholewheat flour too the result will be soft and yumm buns.
