For The Dough

  • 1 teaspoon instant yeast
  • 30 grams granulated sugar
  • 90 ml warm water
  • 2 eggs
  • 40 ml unflavored oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 430 grams all-purpose flour
  • 90 ml milk

For Brushing On To The Buns

  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 3-4 tablespoons sesame seeds


  • In a bowl add the yeast, granulated sugar, warm water, oil, eggs, milk, salt and ¼th of the all-purpose flour. Mix all of these ingredients using a spatula. Add the remaining flour to the mixture and mix using a spatula

Knead this mixture

  • In a processor or do it by hand. The mixture will be really sticky but continue mixing it for 8-10 mins, keep scraping the dough from the sides of the bowl using a plastic scraper and it will form a smooth not so sticky dough after a few minutes of kneading


  • Put this dough in a bowl brushed with oil all over. Cover with cling wrap and ferment for 1 hour. The dough will double in size. After one hour, punch the dough back and referment for another hour, it should double in size again
  • Once done, place the dough on a lightly oiled surface and keep punching and folding the dough for a minute. Divide this dough into equal balls of 80 grams each. Roughly roll the dough balls making sure all the cracks are at the base of the dough.
  • Let this sit on a piece of parchment paper for 15 mins. Make sure to cover with cling wrap during this time
  • Once 15 mins are completed, dust each of the dough ball with some flour and roughly press each dough ball and re-roll them into smooth balls making sure all the cracks are at the base.

Brushing The Buns

  • Place these dough balls on a parchment paper keeping a gap of 3-4 inches between each bun. Carefully cover with cling wrap. Ferment them for 1 hour, remove the cling wrap and then brush a mixture of egg and milk over each dough ball.
  • Top each of the buns with sesame seeds and bake at 190 degrees for 25-30 mins. They should turn golden brown in color on the top and a light brown color on the base of each bun
  • Lightly brush some more butter on top of the bun once baked.
