Ingredients

  1. All purpose flour – 1 + 1/2 cup
  2. Instant Yeast – 1/2 tbsp
  3. Egg – 1
  4. Salt – 3/4 tsp
  5. Sugar – 1 tbsp
  6. Olive oil – 1 tbsp
  7. Warm Water – 1/4 cup (add if more is needed)
  8. Milk – 2 tbsp

For the garlic spread

  1. Garlic chopped very finely – 6 flakes
  2. Butter softened – 2 tbsp
  3. Chopped coriander leaves – 2 tbsp
  4. Kiri cheese – 3

Method

  1. In a bowl mix the sifted flour, salt, sugar and yeast.
  2. To this add the egg, water and milk and mix well.
  3. Knead the dough with olive oil to smoothen it. ( add 1 or 2 tbsp of water if water is needed, the dough should be soft and smooth and not too stiff and dry)
  4. Once the dough is kneaded well, keep it covered with a damp towel or cling wrap and set it aside to raise for 1 hour.
  5. Once the dough is double in volume knead it again to make it smooth.
  6. Now divide the dough into 12 equal balls.
  7. Cut the kiri cheese into 4. Fill each ball with one piece.
  8. Arrange the balls in a lined baking tray.
  9. Make a small slit on top using a knife to fill the garlic spread(not very deep). Keep it aside in a warm place for 45 minutes to make the balls double in size.
  10. Meanwhile mix the butter, crushed garlic and coriander for the filling.
  11. Pre-heat the oven to 180° and fill the spread in the slit on the dough balls.
  12. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the garlic buns turn a golden brown color. Do not over cook, it’ll make the buns harder.
  13. Brush the buns with melted butter. Serve hot!
