Preparation Time : 10 mins
Resting Time : 2 hours
Baking Time : 25 mins
Serves: 4 to 6


All Purpose Flour / Maida - 2 cups + more / 240 grams
Salt - 1 tsp or to taste
Milk - 3/4 cup / 180 ml
Butter - 4 tblspn
Dry Yeast - 1.5 tsp
Egg - 1
Sugar - 2 tblspn

(My 1 cup measures 240 ml)


Take all purpose flour, salt in a bowl and mix well. Set aside.

Take butter in a sauce pan, melt it on low heat till it is molten, add in milk and set aside to cool. It has to be luke warm. Now add in sugar and sprinkle over yeast and set aside for 5 mins to the yeast activates.

Now once the yeast is activated, add in a egg and mix well.

Pour this into the dry flour mix and mix well. The dough will be little sticky, but thats okay.

Now cover with plastic wrap and set aside for 1 hour so the dough doubles in size.

Now punch the air out and add more flour and knead for 2 mins.

Now divide the dough into small balls and arrange it in a greased baking pan and set aside for another 30 to 45 mins.

During the last 10 mins or proofing time, preheat oven to 200 degree C.

Now brush the top with some milk and bake for 25 mins.

Remove and serve warm.
