The first time I tasted Mangalore Buns was way back during college days. These were served as an evening snack. Once out of college I had completely forgotten about it till a college friend mentioned about it in our chat. The realisation that I had all the ingredients stocked up triggered my urge to try it out. After all, some snack had to be put on table when D was back from school. You can very well guess my happiness when I saw all the buns disappear from the plate in no time 🙂

Usually all purpose flour is used for making these buns. While some use half wheat flour and half all purpose flour, I chose to use only wheat flour. The dough for these buns require a resting time of at least 3-4 hours. So I would suggest that you try making this only if you have enough time in hand.
