How to make Upma buns

  1. Take 4 tbsp lukewarm water, add yeast and sugar. Keep this aside for 5-10 mins so that it becomes frothy .
  2. In a bowl add sooji, water, milk powder and spices, then pour in the yeast water. Knead into a soft dough and keep it at a warm place to prove or to double in size.
  3. Prepare the tempering, then let it cool and add coriander. Add this tadka into the proofed dough and mix well.
  4. Make small balls, place them on a baking tray and let them proof again.
  5. Now bake these buns in the preheated oven at 180 degrees celsius for 10 mins.
  6. Serve it with mint-garlic chutney.

My Tip:

The upma dough should be soft. We can also prepare bread from it. Use only fine sooji for this recipe.
