Fried cheesy sweet buns



  1. All purpose flour – 1 cup
  2. Instant yeast – 1 level tsp.
  3. Baking powder – 1/2 tsp.
  4. Salt – 1/4 tsp.
  5. Full cream milk powder – 1 heaping tbsp.
  6. Egg – 1 medium; lightly beaten
  7. Sugar – 2 tbsps.
  8. Cream cheese triangles – 2 numbers
  9. Vanilla essence – 1/4 tsp.
  10. Lukewarm water – as needed
  11. Oil – 2 tbsps.+ as needed for deep- frying
  12. jam or buttercream  as needed
  13. icing sugar as needed


  1. Mix together the flour, salt, sugar, yeast, baking powder, milk powder, egg, vanilla essence, 2 tbsps. of oil  and cream cheese. Knead well to make a soft and smooth dough adding enough lukewarm water.
  2. Keep this dough covered in a warm place for 1 hour. Divide the dough into 4 equal portions. Roll each portion into a thin roti. Cut out small circles of 2″ dia. using a sharp lid or circle cookie cutter. Let them rest for 5-10 minutes.
  3. Heat oil for deep-frying. When it becomes really hot, lower heat to minimum and drop the circles into the hot oil. The circles will puff up into beautiful buns. Fry the buns on a medium heat till golden brown in colour. Sprinkle icing sugar over the buns when they are still hot.
  4. Cut each bun in half and fill them with jam or buttercream. But I like to enjoy these plain without any filling.
