Onion Masala Bun

          I was looking for cakes , buns recipes anything to bake ever since I got an OTG about two months ago. Sangeetha's Spicy Treats's Onion Masala Bun  looked very tempting to me. Its really simple and easy to make. My sister and I enjoyed making these. 

      1.      Whole Wheat Flour 2 cups
      2.      All Purpose Flour/APF 3 cups
3.      Rapid Rise Yeast 1 tbsp
4.      Salt      1/2 tsp
5.      Baking powder       1/2 tsp
6.      Sugar            2 tbsp
7.      Milk       1 and 1/4 cup(Luke warm milk)
8.      Oil      2 and 1/2 tbsp
9.      Onion      1 medium (finely chopped)
10.  Green chili    1 no.(finely chopped -optional)
11.  Garlic      3 cloves(finely chopped)
12.  Cumin seeds     2 tsp
13.  Oregano – for garnishing

Add sugar, milk and yeast in a bowl and keep it aside till it turns frothy.
Mean while add flour, salt , baking powder  together. After the yeast mix is ready add oil to it and then add it to the flour. 
Then add finely chopped onion, cumin seeds, chillies, chopped garlic and mix the flour.  The dough will be sticky. Apply oil to your hands and knead the flour for 3 to 4 minutes.
Now place the dough in a greased bowl  and apply oil on top of the dough. Cover it with a damp  cloth or cling wrap for an hour. The size of the dough will be double by now.
In the mean time grease the baking tray and keep aside. After one hour punch the dough and again knead it for a minute. 
Divide the dough and place it in the tray. Again cover it with a cling wrap for 20 minutes.
Allow the buns to raise. Once done brush the buns with milk.
Sprinkle some oregano for garnishing.
Preheat the oven to 200 degree celcius. And bake it for  15 to 20 minutes.
The steps of this recipe is followed as per sangeetha's recipe. I just changed the garnishing.
