Coconut Flower Buns

Coconut buns are our family's favorite..These buns are simple to make with  less ingredients and can prepared in a jiffy...we can make them as round buns too...For a change I've tried making shapes...looks cute right...I saw this technique in a video long back..forgot where I saw it...It's from a bakery video i think...will sure link them back once I get it right...I'm sending these flower buns to blogging marathon #53 by srivalli under 3 ingredient dish for week 2...She told that we can rule out sugar, salt and oil in count...So here comes the 3 ingredient coconut flower buns...Try out and enjoy...



Ingredients

IngredientMeasurement
All purpose flour/Maida1 1/2 cup
Sugar1 tsp+1/8 cup
Salt1/2 tsp
Yeast2 tsp
shredded Coconut  1/4 cup
Ghee/ butter/ olive oilfor brushing

Method


Take flour,yeast, salt, sugar in a wide bowl....Add luke warm water and form a dough...Close it and let it raise to double the size....


Take coconut slices and sugar in a mixer jar and grind it coarsely...

Punch down the dough and form equal sized balls...Use flour liberally while separating and rolling the dough...

Roll as small rounds and put the coconut stuffing inside...

Close it and again roll out as a small circle...Make cuts from outside using a kitchen scissor in plus shape..

Again cut each piece as 3 segments...Flip each segment so that coconut is exposed out...

You can shape it like this too with just 4 cuts...Place them on greased baking tray...Decorate using jam and sesame seeds(optional)...

Bake at 350F ( 180 C) for 25 minutes or untill golden brown on top...Brush with ghee/ butter...
