Mangalore Buns

Mangalore buns are very popular and I have seen people in many cities in the South and in Mumbai craving for buns. They are filling and are good to have as breakfast or evening snack. Buns go well with chutney, sambhar, daalithove or saung. Many GSB households make phovachutney with more chutney and less phova as accompaniment with buns.

Here is the authentic recipe for making the perfect Mangalore Buns.

Buns with Phovachutney and Filter Coffee
1. Maida - 4 Cups
2. Buttermilk - 1/2 Cup
3. Cooking Soda - 1 Tsp
4. Salt - 1 Tsp
5. Sugar - 8 Tsp
6. Mysore(Salem) Banana - 2-3 small
7. Butter - 2 Tsp

Mangalore Buns with Bombay Sev Mixture and Phovachutney

Dissolve cooking soda, salt and sugar in buttermilk. Add Maida and mashed bananas. Fold in to make a sticky and soft dough. Add little water if necessary. Add butter and mix well. Don't knead hard like poori or chapathi dough. This dough should not be too watery or too dry. Must be like chewing gum and should be easily rolled with minimum pressure of the rolling pin. Cover the dough in a moist cloth and allow to raise for 6-8 hours at warm room temperature.

Make big lemon sized balls and roll out thick pooris with enough maida to dust the pooris. Deep fry in hot ghee or oil till fluffy and golden brown.

Kudpi maam this is a treasure trove of aamchigeli dishes. Excellent, thank you. Especially for people like me who live away from my family! This will be breakfast for me tomorrow. Though I will mix whole wheat flour with the maida. Thank you.
