Whole Wheat Buns

Sometimes I feel like going on a diet or try to eat low calories and healthy food...Then the first thing I feel is to eat wheat dishes like wheat bread,rotis or something like that..

If you buy store bought wheat bread I know that they won’t make it completely with wheat..They will add some regular flour or some preservatives in that...So what I do is I make my own buns so that I know what is in that and what I am eating..

This bun is one of that because I made this entirely with wheat flour...And I feel happy eating that because I know that it is healthy for me..

I don’t get chances often to feel like this..

You can fill this bun with anything and eat it like a burger..I made a spicy potato filling and had this..

So here you go..


Wheat Flour-3 cups
Yeast-1 tblspn
Salt to taste
Sugar-1 tblspn
Olive oil-1 tblspn
Warm water as needed
Curd-1/2 cup

For Topping:
Cream or milk-1 tblspn
Sesame seeds-2 tblspn


Add yeast and sugar in warm water and curd and let it sit for 5 min.

In a mixing bowl,take wheat flour and salt and mix well.

Make a well in the center and pour the yeast mixture in this.make a soft dough out of this..

Apply oil over this and cover it with plastic wrap and let it sit for 1 hour.

Now punch the air out of this and knead it for 3 min.Divide the dough in to equal portions and form balls out of it.

Arrange it in a well oiled tray and cover it with a damp cloth.Let this rest for 30 mins till it increase in size.

Now brush this with cream or milk and sprinkle some sesame seeds over this..

Put this in preheated oven (220 °C or 450°F)..Cook for 15 min till light golden colour.

Remove this and let it cool down...

Serve warm..
Take your ingrediants..Sorry i forgot to add curd in this list...

Mix yeast,sugar with warm water and curd...

Mix salt with wheat flour

Lovely aarthi u r so talented ..god bless u for sharing ur talent

Hi aarthi. Tried it today but the breads dint rise at all. Could u help me why? I used dry yeast

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@AnonymousIt is because of your yeast. You must have added too hot water and killed the yeast or you have used too cold water so the yeast is not activated.

Or the yeast may be expired. Always activate your yeast before using it

What's the substitute for yeast???

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@RadhuNo substitute for yeast

Santosh said... Best Blogger Tips

I am new to baking. If i want to make in a small quantity, for ex 1 cup flour what will be the measurement for rest of the ingredients?

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@SantoshJust half the recipe and use 1.5 cup of flour.

Can we do stuffing in this bun like your masala buns.I wanted to do this as it is made of wheat.

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@Anonymousyes ofcourse you can do

Hi Aarthi,
When i make buns, top of the buns becomes hard & crusty. How can i avoid this?

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@AnonymousU have baked it in low temp then..increase the temp and bake it less time..or you can cover the top with wet cloth as soon as the buns cools down..this will make the crust soft.
