Whether with spaghetti or rice, or with barley, the taste and the brushes are what takes off the recipe!
500gr. flour for all uses
250gr. lukewarm water
1 sachet of yeast
2 tablespoons of sugar (short)
1 tbsp salt (cut)
50gr. butter or olive oil
1 tbsp. tahini
2 tbsp sugar
In a bowl we put the lukewarm water with sugar, yeast and 100 gr. from the flour. Stir and leave for 15 minutes at the edge, covering with a towel, to activate the yeast.
Then add the remaining materials. Mix by hand to homogenise the materials.
Transfer the dough to the counter and mix for 5 more minutes. Cut into 8 pieces the dough. We take each ball and open in a lane and “close” by making the circle (bun). For easier opening, we can only use olive oil and not flour.
On a plate we put the water and sugar and mix. This helps the color the buns get when cooked. On another dish we put the sesame seeds. Drop each bun in the water and then into the sesame.
Put baking paper on the baking dish and touch 4 bunches. Let the buns rest and swell, covering with a towel. They have to double their volume. This process can take from 30 minutes to 1 hour, depending on whether the space is warm.
Bake in a preheated oven at 200 degrees for 17-19 minutes. Serve the buns neatly or accompanied with cheeses and cold cuts or chocolate.
