Garlic Buns

Easy, tasty, spongy  homemade garlic buns.


1 ½ cup Plain flour       
3/4 tbsp Yeast 
1/2 cup Water  (add if more is needed)
3/4 tsp Salt      
1 tbsp Sugar
1 tbsp Olive oil/ any cooking oil           

For the garlic Spread

3-5 flakes Garlic chopped very fine      
2 tbsp Butter softened  
1 tbsp oregano (optional)


  • Warm the water (not very hot, just warm) and add the yeast, sugar and salt in it and mix well. After a minute mix again to make sure the yeast gets properly dissolved.
  • Take the flour in a big bowl and make a dent in the centre and add the mixed yeast water.
  • Knead the dough with oil to smooth and pliable (add 1 or 2 tbsp of water if water is needed, the dough should not be too stiff and dry, it should be soft, smooth and pliable)
  • Keep covered the bowl with either a clean wet towel or a cling wrap (wrap the bowl to cover it, not the dough).
  • After an hour, the dough should have raised double in volume. Again knead it little to make it smooth.
  • Divide into 6 equal balls and arrange it with enough gaps in a lined baking tray.
  • Make a small slit on top using a knife to fill the garlic spread. (not very deep, more on top)
  • Keep it aside in warm place for 45 minutes to make the balls double in size.
  • Mean while make ready the spread, by mixing the butter, garlic and oregano.
  • Pre heat the oven for 180°C and apparently fill the spread in the slit we made in the dough balls.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes or till you get a golden coloured buns. Just cook for needed, over baking makes it harder.
