I love breads and that is quite evident with me baking breads for us and for friends through out the week. Generally I just use all-purpose flour or maida for breads. Of late I am trying my hand at replacing maida with other flours such as rye, ragi, whole wheat and oats.

Different flours result in different texture and a very different taste. Experimentation will mean multiple recipes and that means lots of permutations and combination of ingredients. This just opens the doors to so many recipes ! (Phew that was a long sentence :D)

This is a recipe I made for friends and this was also my first use of 100% whole wheat and oats as a combination to make burger buns. I am yet to get them soft like buns made with maida but this is definitely a step in the right direction.

So here is my step towards healthy baking: Home made healthy whole wheat and oats burger buns !

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Sieve both the flours and set aside in a bowl.
  2. Set aside all the other ingredients in individual bowls before starting.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, add the yeast, sugar, flours, eggs, salt and warm milk and start kneading ( alternatively one can add all the ingredients to a stand mixer, attach the dough hook and start kneading)
  4. Knead the dough just till all the ingredients come together (Over kneading increases the gluten in the dough and the buns become dense after baking)
  5. Grease another large mixing bowl with little oil and lay the dough into that.
  6. Cover the dough with cling film or a plate and let it rest for 45 minutes to 1 hour ( or till the dough doubles in size).
  7. Remove the plate / cling film, punch down the dough and knead a little a bit.
  8. Portion out the dough into small balls and set aside ( i weighed each ball to approximately 70 - 75 gms)
  9. Grease a baking tray and set aside.
  10. Tighten by rolling each ball between your palms and tucking the skin / edges to get a smooth skin on top.
  11. Roll all the dough balls and place them slowly on the baking tray ( leave at least 1 inch space between each ball).
  12. Cover with a wet towel or cling film and let it rise for another 30 minutes ( till the dough balls double in size).
  13. While the dough balls are resting pre-heat the oven to 200 degree C.
  14. Once the dough balls rise, remove the cling film, apply egg wash using a brush and sprinkle sesame seeds on them.
  15. Bake the buns in the oven for 15-20 minutes or till it turns golden brown in colour.
  16. Once baked remove the buns and set aside for 5 minutes ( always wear mittens while removing anything hot from the oven). Apply butter on top of the buns while they are hot.
  17. Remove the buns from the tray and set aside on a wire mesh to cool.( cover them with a dry towel so that the top does not dry out)
  18. Use them to make burgers or have them as is !!!
