Masala Bun

Masala Bun

I am obsessed with Breads these Days. After I made Masala Stuffed Bun, I wanted to make a Bun with Indian Masala.I just added all the Indian Masala in my pantry.  the end result was Indian Flavored Bun. It was tasty and so soft. Perfect accompaniment for Ginger Tea in evening  or for breakfast with a Tad of butter.


Dry Yeast - 1 teaspoon
Sugar - 1/4 Teaspoon
Salt - 1/2 teaspoon
Luke warm water - 125 Ml
Maida/All purpose flour - 1 Cup (Approx 200 Grams)
Butter - 1 Tablespoon
Chilli Flakes - 1 Tablespoon
Cumin Powder - 1/2 Teaspoon
Garam Masala - 1/4 Teaspoon
Corinader Powder - 1/4 Teaspoon

In a mixing bowl, add the Luke warm and add the sugar and Salt. To this add the yeast and let it sit for 5 minutes on your counter.

To this add the remaining ingredients and knead into a smooth dough and let it sit on the counter for 1 hour or till it is doubled. Cover it with a wet cloth during this. I used a Food processor to knead this, you can do this without food processor too.

Once they have doubled, punch it down and knead again. Now divide this into equal portions and shape them into balls.

Take a baking tray and line it with a aluminium foil. Grease the foil with olive oil or butter.

Now place the balls on the greased tray leaving enough gap between each ball.

Cover this with a wet kitchen towel and allow it to sit in the counter for 30 minutes or till it is doubled.

Then brush some oil/butter on the Bun and Bake it for 15 - 20 minutes at 220C.

Once done, brush some butter on top and have it for Breakfast or Evening Snack.


  • Each oven is different, so keep a close eye.
  • Adjust the masala to suit your taste. Add or reduce any masala of your choice.
