MANGALORE BUNS (Mangalooru Buns)

"Mangalore Buns" is one of my many favorite Mangalorean Preparations. I associate this preparation with my Dodappa (Badepapa). I still remember that one evening, when he took me as a kid, down to a small hotel, near his post office where he worked. He treated me with buns & coffee. I simply can never forget this treat, as that moment haunts me till date. If my dodappa was alive, I would have gone out on many more treats. I would have treated him with his favorites & he would have been happy to see me married to Kuku. We would all have had a different life with him. He still being an elder member of the family. My Dodamma (Badimaa) would have been happy. Oh!!!! I can not imagine how it would have been. But may be God did not want this. We all Love you Badepapa. I will remember that buns & coffee, that I had with you, forever.

Now add salt & soda powder & stir well. Now continue adding maida & keep kneading to a soft dough. If using the optional atta, it can be added before maida. Now leave this soft dough aside for 8 hours to let it ferment.
