The buns that I am mentioning is not the plural form of bun but a very famous breakfast item that can be found in most of the homes and restaurants in Mangalore. This is basically a deep fried Indian bread that is usually served with either chutney or dalithoy. At our place we usually have it without any side dishes. As kids we used to dunk it in hot coffee and eat :) I know its a little wierd.
This is slightly sweet due to the addition of banana and sugar If you are not fond of the sweetness you may serve it with some spicy coriander leaves chutney or any other chutney of your choice.
Here is what's needed:
2 cups Maida (All purpose flour)
1 cup Atta (Whole wheat flour)
1 pinch Baking soda
2 medium sized Ripe banana
1/2 cup Curds
1/2 cup Sugar
1 tsp Cumin seeds
1 tbsp oil + extra to deep fry
1) Mix sugar and curds and let it sit for 10-15 mins.
2) Add mashed banana,cumin seeds to the sugar - curd mixture and mix well.
3) Sieve the flours and soda. Add it to the mixture and knead it. It will be a sticky mixture. Resist the urge to add more water or curds. The liquid from curds and banana is sufficient to knead the dough.
4) Heat a tbsp of oil until hot and pour it over the dough and let it rest overnight or at least 8-10 hrs.
5) Knead the dough again incorporating the oil. Make small balls and roll it using a rolling pin. The rolled out disc should be slight thick.
6) Deep fry in hot oil and drain it on a tissue paper.
P.S: Often the top of the Buns tend to crack up in oil causing oil to splutter a little. So make sure that you are careful when you flip the Buns in oil.
