Spicy Buns

For the third and final day of the ‘Roll and fold like a bun’ theme, I have some spicy buns. I was so tempted to call these quick buns because these are made with yeast. After the sourdough spree I had, the fact that I can actually complete the bread from start to finish in a single day makes it a quick bread to me.

I had made some buns for my daughter and her friend. I added some extra Spicy mix for the husband and me. I wanted a little flavour in the buns. So I mixed curry leaves and coriander for the kids version and added some green chillies in our version. It tasted good, especially with some butter or cheesy dip.

Makes 8 small buns


300 gms All purpose flour

3-4 gms Instant yeast

15 gms Unsalted butter, room temp

160 gms Milk, at room temp

3/4 tsp Salt

2-3 tsp Curry leaves, coriander & green chillies mixture


  • Take the curry leaves, coriander and green chillies in a blender jar and mix to a coarse paste
  • Take the flour, yeast, butter, salt and curry leaves mixture in a bowl
  • Add the milk and mix them all into a dough
  • Set aside the dough to double in volume, around 1 hour
  • Once the dough is double, take it out and divide into 8 parts

  • Roll each dough piece into a ball and place it on a greased baking tray
  • Preheat the oven at 200C
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes or till the top is golden brown
  • Take the buns out of the oven and cool on a wire rack
  • Brush the top of the buns with butter
