How to Make Masala Buns(Seasoned Dinner Rolls)?
         Masala for buns is prepared by sauteing cumin seeds, sesame seeds, onion, green chilies,ginger-garlic paste, salt and red chili powder in a teaspoon oil to add to taste to the buns. Then I made a soft and pliable dough using water+sugar+yeast+APF+Salt + prepared masala. Then added EV olive oil and perfect soft dough ready. Proofed in the Instant Pot using yogurt function for 30 minutes and rolled them into small buns again proofed for 20 minutes and baked in the oven. These buns are achieved without much strain and work making it easy even for beginners to prepare.
