  • 2 cups All purpose flour heaped
  • 1 teaspoon Instant yeast
  • 2 tablespoon Butter Melted
  • ½ cup Water Luke warm
  • ¼ cup Milk room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon Sugar
  • ¾ teaspoon Salt


  • Mix lukewarm water, yeast and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Stir to dissolve yeast completely.
  • Once yeast is dissolved, add salt, milk and melted butter at room temperature. Mix well.
  • Add flour as you stir with spatula. Don't use hands as it will be super sticky. No need to be smooth, but it should be mixed evenly.
  • Cling wrap or use damp towel to cover the bowl. Keep aside until the dough is doubled in size. (30 mins to 1 hour)
  • Once doubled in volume, wet your fingers with water. Fold the dough and tuck to middle firstly.
  • Then rotate the bowl 90 degree and repeat the same. Dip your fingers in water to avoid sticking.
  • Once you do from all sides, transfer to a surface dusted with flour generously.
  • Sprinkle little flour on top and work on the dough to smoothen it. Dust as needed but do not over do.
  • Divide into 9 equal sized balls. First divide dough potion to 3, then again each to 3 of same size. You can eyeball or weigh the dough for perfect size.
  • Each time sprinkle little flour to avoid it from sticking to hands. Be gentle while handling the dough, no need to knead much since the dough is sticky.
  • Take a 8*8 inch pan and grease it with butter. Sprinkle some flour and tap off excess.
  • Arrange the buns equally spaced. Cling wrap and keep aside for 30 minutes or until it doubles in size.
  • Brush the surface generously with milk. Do it gently.
  • Preheat oven at 190 deg C for 15 mins. Bake in middle rack for 15 minutes or until top turns golden.
  • Once done, brush generously with butter.
  • Loosen sides and invert over wire rack to cool completely.
  • Cover with a clean kitchen towel while cooling.



  • Depending on oven size, make & model, the baking time may vary. So keep an eye after 12 minutes.
