A Japanese Twist To Mangalore Bun

A Japanese Twist To Mangalore Bun - Plattershare - Recipes, food stories and food lovers
Opposite to Bull-temple in bangalore ,there is a place where you get good authenticate south-indian breakfast. 4 year back i tried this delicious bun there for the very first time. When i saw them ,I was really wondering why it's called a bun which is not baked .But as soon as took the first bite i understood the reason behind the name. It was made from well fermented dough making it spongy ,light yet delicious ...I prepared this one using flour many times. This time i tried something different adding Japanese barley "Oo Mugi" to it. The result was truly delicious... This i prepared for the PlatterShare #BellyNiravana Programme. Goindiaorganic whose constant effort is to bring premium & exotic organic food to your reach sent me this pack of "Oo Mugi" for a Product Review.
