Whole Wheat Garlic Buns

Whole Wheat Garlic Buns 

I made this as Dinner rolls along with the Pumpkin Soup. I spiced it up using garlic,Kalonji and Carom Seeds.

This was soft,porous and the aroma of garlic filled my kitchen.


Whole Wheat Flour - 3 Cups
Luke Warm Water - 1.5 Cups
Dry Yeast - 1 Teaspoon
Sugar- 1 tablespoon
Salt - 1 Teaspoon

Garlic Powder - 1 Teaspoon
Nigella Seeds/Kalonji - 1/2 Teaspoon
Carom Seeds - 1/2 Teaspoons
White Sesame Seeds - 1 Teaspoon (For Sprinkling)
Oil - 1 Tablespoon (I used Olive Oil)


  • In a mixing bowl, place the luke warm water and add the sugar and stir it well.
  •  To this add the Dry yeast and cover with a plate and leave it aside till it is frothy.
  • In another mixing bowl, place the Wheat Flour and Salt and add Butter or Oil and mix it well. 
  • To this add the Yeast water,Garlic Powder, nigella seeds,Carom Seeds and knead for 8-10 minutes or till you get a smooth pliable dough.
  • Now place this dough in a oiled bowl and cover it with a damp cloth and allow it to rise. This may take 1 Hour.
  • Once the Dough has doubled, bring the dough to the top of the kitchen counter and punch it down and knead for couple of minutes.
  • Then shape it into a Pav and place it in a greased Loaf tin. Cover it lightly with a damp cloth and allow it to rise for 30-45 minutes.
  • Slightly brush the bun with water/milk and sprinkle some White Sesame seeds on them. 
  • After 30-45 minutes, Bake it in a Pre heated Oven for 30 minutes at 180C and Broil for 5 minutes.
