Tutti Frutti Buns or bread recipe with butter (maska) a famous Mumbai food.
recipeIngredient (used american measuring cup, 1 cup = 250 ml)
  • ◾1.5 tbsp fresh yeast Or 1.5 tbsp active dry yeast
  • 1 t/s salt
  • 3 tbsp honey or 3 tbsp Sugar or as sweetness required
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup milk Or water
  • 4 tbsp tutti frutti candies
  • 3 tbsp Oil / butter
  • 2 tbsp butter for glazing bread
How to make the recipe?
  1. Take yeast along with 4 tbsp lukewarm milk Or water, hot enough so that you are able to dip your finger. Add some salt along with honey. Keep covered in a humid place. I have used lukewarm water and used fresh yeast. within ten mins the yeast will become frothy. Stir with a spoon and keep it covered aside again.
  2. Best place to keep yeast is in your oven with the light. After 15 mins yeast will
  3. be ready.
  4. Sift wheat flour and refined flour together. Mix yeast, milk and oil with flour. Knead well to form a dough. Use all your stamina to knead this dough. After about 15 mins of kneading. Shape your dough into a round ball.
  5. The dough would be slightly sticky yet. You could add little bit of flour into it. But caution don’t be tempted to add more flour. Else your bread or bun would be rubbery.
  6. Slightly oil a vessel. Place this dough into this vessel. Cover the dough with a damp towel or cloth. Keep it aside in a humid place.
  7. Approximately after 30 mins the dough should rise up to its double size. Now again dust a little flour and knead this dough again. The more you knead the better would be your bread. So don’t be lazy in kneading dough. Add tutti frutti into the dough.
  8. Give desired shape. I have divided the dough into two parts ⅔rd have placed into bread box.
  9. The rest dough have shaped them into round buns. Keep 2 inches space between these balls.
  10. Again apply the same process for about 30 mins cover these shaped balls with damp cloth. After 30 mins they will double up and rise beautifully.
  11. Bake them at 220°C for about 30 mins Or when they become nice brown.
  12. Please don’t over bake them unless you want rubbery bread.
  13. I can assure your bread and bun would look beautiful. Brush some butter on them for a nice glaze.
1. You could use olive oil or butter instead of coconut oil.
2. Don’t make the flour very firm while kneading. The dough should be soft, smooth and slightly sticky Kindly refrain from adding more flour while kneading. If it is too sticky you could add few more drops of oil.
3. Instead of wheat flour you could use refined flour, Corn flour. Replace with wheat flour and follow the same instruction as above.
4. It is important to use fresh yeast. If your yeast is not getting frothy in 7 mins, that means it is spoiled. Kindly discard this yeast and replace with fresh yeast. Otherwise your entire effort will go in vain.
5.You could use only refined flour instead of wheat flour.
