Whole Wheat Flour Buns

These whole wheat flour buns are tastier and healthier than their counterparts Mangalore buns. You can have them as it is or with chutney, sambar, daalithoi or some curry. If the recipe is followed properly, these buns bounce from the pan into your plate!
1. Whole Wheat Flour - 3 cups
1. Maida - 1 cup
2. Buttermilk - 1/2 Cup
3. Cooking Soda - 1 Tsp
4. Salt - 1 Tsp
5. Sugar - 8 Tsp
6. Mysore(Salem) or Yelakki Banana - 2-3 small
7. Butter - 2 Tsp

Dissolve cooking soda, salt and sugar in buttermilk. Add wheat flour, 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.
