Plain Buns

Soft dinner buns, served either with your starter soup
or with sambal/curry as the Malays often take
for breakfast or afternoon tea

Tried to bake these buns ...
with note and tips from my sister

200 gm of bread flour
2 tbs butter
2 tbs sugar
1 tsp of instant yeast
a pinch of salt
1/2 egg + water to make 1 cup of liquid mix

              Method :  Mix all the dry ingredient in a bowl 
                              (or mixer with a dough padle on low 5/8mins)
                              then add in in the butter and liquid mix (egg + water)
                              until all flour come off the side of the bowl and
                              u get a soft ball of dough
                              Knead the dough for about 5/10 minutes
                              until dough becomes elastic and shiny

leave the ball of dough to rest/prove
for 1 hour or until it becomes double in size
note  cover bowl with tea towel

first knock/punch  the air in the ball of bread dough,
then the roll out and form equal sizes of small balls
- 16 small buns
leave to rest in the baking pan
about 20 mins

brush with egg wash
and bake at 180 degrees centigrade
for 15/20 mins until light brown
and test with a toothpick/skewer
if it comes out clean
then baking is done
