Buns (Mangalore style)

on February 21, 2014

“Buns” My all time favorite snack, Am sure all the mangaloreans like me will surely agree to this 🙂

In mangalore, there is a restaurant called “Taj Mahal” where we get the best buns-tove (dal) in the evening times.

Well, I had bookmarked this recipe long time back, but I was always postponing it because of my busy schedule, Finally got sometime this weekend, and I satisfied my craving for buns, and served it with “Dalithoy” (A konkani type dal) 🙂

Here goes the recipe, Hope you guys enjoy !!


  • Maida (All purpose flour) : 2 cups
  • Bengal gram flour (Besan) : 1 tbsp
  • Ripe plantain : 1 big
  • Baking soda : 1/2 tsp
  • Sugar : 1 tbsp
  • Salt : 1tsp
  • Yoghurt : 1/2 cup
  • Oil for frying


  • Sieve maida, besan separately and keep aside.
  • Mash plantain with yougurt, sugar, salt and baking soda.
  • First add besan, then enough maida this yougurt mixture can take
  • Knead well and make a lump of the dough, apply 2tsp of oil to it and keep under cover for 4-5 hours (I kept it for a whole night)
  • Shape portions of the dough into balls of lime size, flatten them into small thick rounds
  • Deep fry in oil till golden brown, Serve hot
