After I posted Homemade Chicken Burger Patty i received many msgs on my Fb page asking to post the Burger Buns recipe too..I had planned to post it last week but somehow got delayed..So here is the Homemade Burger Buns for all those who have asked for.
I have already posted an  eggless hamburger buns  before But this is a easier version  ..Both the recipes are good and both will give you yummy buns. with lovely texture. I make this Burger Bun when I'm lazy to make the poolish starter..
These eggless Burger Buns are so soft and very easy to make ..do try them and let me know how it turns.
Here I have included stepwise pics for better understanding..these  burger buns are soft and yummy and go well with any patty or make any sandwich...


I have made some yummy Chicken  burger with this..Will post it later...Please go through the notes I have tried and included many frequently asked questions there.

Ingredients:
(makes 6- 7 burger buns)
2 1/2 cup refined  flour /maida
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup milk
1 tbsp milk powder
1  tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1.5 tsp yeast
2 tbsp oil

Method

  • In  a bowl take 1/2 cup lukewarm water add yeast sugar mix and cover it with a lid allow the yeast to rise it will take about 3-5 minutes to froth.
  • take a bowl mix flour milk powder and salt ,then add the frothy yeast mixture and knead till it all comes together.
  • The dough will be sticky as shown in the pic below.




  • Add oil and knead to a soft smooth dough,knead for 8 to 10 minutes ,you will see that the sticky dough is now smooth and elastic
  • You can use your food processor or kitchen aid to knead,I always knead with my hand.
  • Oil the bowl with oil and place the soft smooth kneaded dough,cover the bowl with a cling foil and allow it to double in size
  • It may take an hour or  2 depending on the climatic conditions.
  • My dough rises well within an hour .
  • Once its risen beautifully ,punch down the air and knead again for 5 minutes.


  • Now divide the dough into equal balls and shape it into buns
  • Pinch the dough and place the seem side down ,place the buns on a tray lined with parchment/butter paper and cover it with a damp cloth/kitchen towel
  • Allow it to rise till it doubles it may take 30-45 minutes,this is called proofing.
  • Once the buns have proved brush milk/egg wash and sprinkle sesame seeds.


  • Meanwhile pre heat the oven at 180 degree for 10 minutes.
  • Place the tray in the oven and bake for 18-20 minutes at 180 degree Celsius.
  • Once they are out of the oven ,brush the top with melted butter .
  • Enjoy your soft homemade burger buns with any patty..I will post the Chicken Burger later today.


Notes
I use instant yeast,Prime /Moments brand though it is instant i still prefer frothing it in lukewarm water,you can directly add the instant yeast to the dough but to be safe i have always allowed the yeast to proof first.
if using active dry/dry yeast follow the same method to let the yeast proof first.
Please check if your yeast is working well and only then proceed to knead the dough ,the dough will normally take 1-2 hours not more than that to double in size..if it hasn't your yeast is not working.
Always use lukewarm milk/water,hot water/milk will kill the yeast.
Yeast feeds on sugar so add sugar to the yeast .
You may need more or less water to knead the dough ,depending on the lour you use.
If the dough is too dry add little water/milk and knead.
If the dough is too wet add some more flour and knead .
The dough is to kneaded till its soft smooth and elastic,if your dough is not kneaded well,the buns/bread will be hard .
It normally takes 15-20 minutes for buns to bake.
Applying egg wash will give the buns nice brown crust,I have always used milk to brush the buns.
If at all the buns have not turn brown from top you can turn the upper rod/element on and let it brown just or 3-5 minutes.
Once the buns are out of the oven brush butter ,this will keep your buns soft,store the buns in airtight container.
The buns can be reheated in the microwave or if using oven ,do not preheat it simply put the buns in the oven for 10 minutes at 150 degree,your buns will be fresh and soft like before.



These perfect  Khoya Gulab Jamun are my favourite...hehe you may be wondering  every sweet  i post is my favourite...Yeah being a big foodie and having a Sweet tooth i love just love sweets especially Indian milk based...These Khoya Gulab jamun are simply delicious. There are many versions of Gulab jamuns many instant versions too but i simply love gulab jamun made from khoya/mava they are rich and really yumm
For this Khoya Gulab Jamun we need haryali mava/khoya the sticky kind of but if you cannot find no worries just proceed with the normal mava/mawa...Do try these yummy khoya gulab jamuns they are just too good I'm sure you will love them too.
I will be adding more stepwise pics later ..

khoa gulab jamun recipe



Ingredients
250 gms hariyali mava/khoya
5 tbsp maida/refined flour
5 tbsp milk powder
2 tbsp arrowroot powder *
1/4 tsp baking soda

Sugar syrup
2 cup sugar
2 cup water
1/2 tsp green cardamom crushed
few saffron strands


Method

  • In a bowl/large plate take all ingredients Knead the mava very well.
  • Add the maida,milk powder and arrowroot powder and baking powder.
  • Only if needed add 1 - 2 tbsp milk and knead to a soft smooth dough.
  • Divide into small balls and keep the balls covered with a muslin cloth.



  • Heat a kadhai/pan with ghee/dalda/oil and fry the gulab jamun over medium flame until golden brown.
  • Make the sugar syrup by boiling the sugar ,water and cardamom seeds together .
  • Add a teaspoon of milk to remove the scum if any..let it boil for 10-12 minutes.
  • Place the fried gulab jamun balls in the warm sugar syrup let it get soaked for 30 minutes at least before you serve.


Notes
Kneading is very important..knead the mava with the heels of your palm for few minutes till the dough is smooth.
If the mava you using is good you will not need to add milk but if you feel the dough is breaking or is dry add 1-2 tbsp milk ,add 1 tbsp at a time knead and then add more if required.
If you cannot find arrowroot ,add 1 tbsp cornflour instead and add 1 more tbsp of milk powder.
Do not apply much pressure while making the balls genlty shape the balls with your palms to avoid cracks,
The ghee/oil should be  hot  but not smoking hot ,once hot switch the flame to medium , fry over medium flame else the gulab jamuns will be uncooked from inside and will brown quickly.
Always soak the gulab jamun in the warm sugar syrup,if it is too hot the gulab jamuns will break .

Holi is just around the corner and there are recipes flooding all over the Internet..Thandai gujiyas malpuas and what not...Well I never thought I will be posting malpua recipe for holi but since i made malpuas coincidentally few days back i happen to post it today..
Malpuas are a popular Indian sweet from the north of India there are many versions of this yummy sweet.

Being a die hard foodie and having a sweet tooth i rather say teeth because I'm crazy for sweets especially Indian desserts I  have always been a fan of malpua with rabri, jalebi with rabri and all the other sweets ...Few years back I tried Sanjeev Kapoor's malpua recipe and loved it there are many versions of malpua and each one has a different recipe some make it only from maida some add mava some with suji ...I also have tried 2-3 versions and loved all.
I had more than a cup of sugar syrup left after making khoya gulab jamun  and i didn't want to use it for balushahi..Also there was some paneer left in the fridge which was actually reserved for paneer jalebi but then thought of  adding it all and making  Mava Malpuas...
how to amke mava/khoya /mawa malpua

I only had 3/4 cup of maida/refined flour so I added some semolina and mava and paneer and thus made these yummy Mava Paneer Malpuas..they were just too yumm ..I actually eyeballed the recipe and tweaked according to my taste but it was a huge hit and my experiment was success..
These malpuas were really so delish everyone at home loved it..I was very happy and satisfied with the outcome so thought if sharing it with you all..I also made little rabri to go along..I have posted the rabri recipe earlier if you wish to check i just kept it simple and didnt add kesar this time.

Notes

  • Its very important to squeeze the water from the mince completely ,or while frying the burger patty will shrink.
  • You can add carrot,corn,capsicum any vegetable finely chopped .
  • I have not added egg since I didn't feel the need,it  binded well together and it did hold its shape.
  • You can grill or pan fry it,but do not keep it frying for a long time,the patty will turn chewy and not juicy ,chicken cooks fast so cook accordingly.
  • If you wish you can also beat a egg then dip the burger patty roll it in bread crumbs and then fry it.
  • With the above mentioned quantity you will get approx 10 -12 patties .
  • Always use chicken breast and meat from thigh/leg  pieces to make..mix both together..
