For the dough:

  • Warm the milk and water together.

  • Cook for 1-2 mins. turn off the heat .

For the bun:

  • After an hour, the dough we prepared would have doubled in size. Take it  and gently knead and make  equal sized balls.
  • Take a baking tray and  grease with oil and arrange the rolled balls with enough spacing between them.
  • Divide/roll the stuffing into equal size ball. Make sure that the stuffing should be around half the size of the  rolled buns dough.
  • Take each bun and make a dent in the center.
  • Keep the stuffing inside and pinch all the end towards center to cover the stuffing.
  • Roll in to smooth bun. Repeat for every bun.

  • Arrange them in the baking tray. Keep the pinched joined side down.Brush them well with oil.
  • Preheat the oven for 190°C. Bake for 18-20 mins or until the top crust turns golden brown in color.  
  • Serve hot with evening tea/coffee.

  • The dough should not be sticky; if so then add in a little more flour.
