Ingredients
  • ● 250g all-purpose flour (2 cups)
  • ● 115 ml lukewarm milk
  • ● 1 egg
  • ● 1 tsp yeast
  • ● ¾ tsp salt
  • ● 3 tbsp sugar
  • ● 4 tsp butter
  • ● Sesame seeds and oregano or herbs of your choice
  • ● 4 tbsp powdered milk
Instructions
  1. Step 1: Add the yeast and sugar into lukewarm milk and stir thoroughly to ix them.
  2. Step2: In a separate bowl, sift in the flour, powdered milk, and salt. Mix them nicely.
  3. Step 3: Add the yeast-milk mixture to the flour. Melt the butter, cool it down and add it to the flour bowl. Add the egg to the flour as well. Mix all the ingredients together nicely.
  4. Step 4: Once all the ingredients are well incorporated, start kneading the dough by hand. At first the dough texture will be sticky, but the sticky-texture will reduce as you keep kneading. Add a few tbsp of flour if needed but avoid adding too much.
  5. Step 5: Once the dough is smooth and not sticky anymore, form a ball shape with the dough. Place the dough in a bowl, brush the dough with oil and rest it for an hour.
  6. Step 6: After an hour, take out the dough, the size of the dough should double by an hour. Roll the dough on a rolling board or on a flat and smooth surface. Roll the dough into a long shape.
  7. Step 7: Cut the dough roll into several small and even sections.
  8. Step 8: Take any one of the small sections and form a flat ball shape with it.
  9. Step 9: Use a rolling pin to flatten the dough ball. Try to form a square shape with the dough. Use your hands to stretch the dough and form the 4 corners of the square shape. Roll the dough after stretching the 4 corners.
  10. Step 10: You can keep the bun empty or you can add a filling of your choice. Add the filling along the middle part of the rolled square dough. Use a knife to cut diagonal slits on both sides (wider sides) of the dough.
  11. Step 11: Hold the top dough strand of either side. Bring the strand over the filling and to the opposite side of it. Press the open end of the dough strand against the dough base to secure it.
  12. Step 12: Now, take the top dough strand of the opposite side and similarly draw it over the filling and then pressing its open end to the opposite side of it.
  13. Step 13: Continue this process. Remember to draw over a strand of the opposite side for every next step. This will form the braided pattern.
  14. Step 14: After reaching the end of the braiding, tuck inside the last strand under the bun base. Brush a little bit of melted butter on the braided bun dough and meanwhile, pre-heat the oven.
  15. Step 15: Bake the braided bun dough in 190 degree Fahrenheit, for 20-25 minutes.
