1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
1 cup almond/cashew milk/warm water
1/4 cup melted butter or oil
2 teaspoon of baking powder
1 packet of original eno or 1 tablespoon of club soda
1 teaspoon of salt
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon bread yeast
Please check (Measurements)


Process: Dissolve the sugar in warm milk, add baking powder and eno or club soda. Add the yeast, salt, butter to the flour and mix all well. (If you are not using quick rise yeast then add it to the milk, mix well and let it sit for 10 minutes covered with a lid. After 10 minutes then add the milk mixture to the flour mixture).

Knead it into a soft dough, add more butter or oil if needed. Keep aside for an hour covered with a wet cloth. After an hour knead the dough again for 5 minutes by dusting some flour on your palms. Make equal portions of balls (depending on your choice you can either keep them close or little distant from each other).
Place all the balls on a tray covered with parchment paper and cover the balls with the wet cloth for 30 minutes. During both the resting times, the dough rises to a good size. Preheat the oven at 350F or 375 F.
Brush some milk on the top of the balls and bake them for 10-15 minutes, till it turns brown. Remove the balls out and brush some butter on the top and let it cool down for 10-15 minutes. Buns ready to be served either with wada, soup, dal or some sabzi.
