Chilli Garlic Buns

Spicy, flavorful buttery buns filled with garlic and red chili flakes.


1 cup Maida/All purpose flour  
1/2 cup Wheat flour     
1 tbsp Active dry yeast
1/4 cup Milk (+1 tbsp if needed)
1/4 cup Water  (+1 tbsp if needed)
1/8 cup Olive oil          
1/2 tbsp Sugar 
3/4 tsp Salt      
1 tbsp garlic, Chopped
1 tbsp Chili flakes
1 ½ tbsp coriander, Chopped   (optional)


  • Sieve the flours together in a large bowl and make a dent in the centre.
  • Heat the milk and water little (Luke warm) and add sugar, yeast to it and mix well to dissolve yeast completely.
  • Pour this mixture in the dent; add olive oil, salt, chopped garlic and the chili flakes and mix well to make pliable and loose dough.
  • Apply oil over the dough and cover the mouth of the bowl with a cling wrap. Keep in a warm place for an hour.
  • After an hour the dough should have raised well.
  • Punch down the dough and make equal sized balls and arrange it in a greased baking tray (I used cake tin to give shape)
  • Pre heat the oven to 190°C  . Till then the dough balls will again rise a bit.
  • Brush the buns with milk and bake the buns at 190°C  for 13-15 minutes or until the top starts turning golden colour.
  • Brush again with butter on top.
  • Serve with butter when its still warm!! (If you like, you can spread little chili-garlic chutney)
