Masala bun

My DH would often remember khara buns from Bangalore/Mysore. I’m not too familiar with them and when I saw these I thought these are the khara buns. Khara meaning hot, could also mean “masala” according to me Smile. So I set off to make these. Turns out these are not khara buns, nonetheless they were well received in my house. So mission accomplished!

I too liked them and I think they’re especially good as to-go food. They’ve a yummy potato filling!


To make the buns:


  • 1 1/2 cups All purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup Milk
  • 1/4 cup water (add if more needed)
  • 3/4 tblsp Active dry yeast
  • 1 tblsp sugar
  • 3/4 tsp Salt
  • 3 tblsp Olive oil
  • Chilli powder
  • Chopped coriander

For the filling:

  • 3-4 Boiled potatoes (cubed)
  • 1/2 cup chopped onions
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp chilli powder
  • 1 tsp amchur (or mango powder)
  • 3 tsp oil


  1. Warm the milk,add sugar to it and mix well. Add the yeast to it and mix well. Keep aside.
  2. Take flour and make a hole,add water,olive oil,salt in it and the yeast completely dissolved in the milk. Add the chopped coriander and chilli powder.
  3. Mix and make a smooth dough,keep in a warm place covered with a cling wrap for an hour.
  4. Meanwhile make the filling. For the filling:
    1. Heat the oil and saute the onions till golden brown.
    2. Add turmeric, chilli powder and fry for a 1 minute.
    3. Add potatoes and mix. Add the amchur.
    4. Mix well and if required mash the potatoes. That makes it easy to fill the buns.
  5. After an hour, the dough must’ve risen. Make 6 equal balls from it.
  6. Flatten the balls and take a tablespoon or so of the filling and then wrap it in the dough.
  7. Preheat the oven to 375 Fahrenheit and let the stuffed buns rise in the meantime.
  8. After the oven has preheated, bake the buns for 17-20 minutes.
  9. Delicious buns are ready!
