Khara Bun

To day we are going to enter  third week of Mega baking Marathon. This week I have chosen Bun's and roll's as my sub theme. For the first day I am going to treat you all with a Bengaluru Iyengar  bakery Khara bun. Getting a proper recipe for this khara bun is not possible. So I tried my best to bring the original color, texture and taste. These are my favorite bun's I can finish my breakfast with this one bun and a cup of tea or coffee. So when ever I go to Bengaluru make sure to by them from the bakery. They taste sweet, little salty and spicy and a perfect snack.
