Burgers are great fun to make at home because you can stash in all the wonderful things you like, leaving out the stuff you aren’t particularly fond of!

Try this recipe and you will realize that it is even more fun to make it from scratch, including the buns. These Homemade Burger Buns are super soft and taste much better than the buns you get in stores.

Burgers made from fresh, warm buns also turn out to be tastier than those made with readymade buns! Just perfect, these buns are definitely worth a try. They stay fresh in a dry, airtight container for two days.

Use these buns to make burgers like the Veggie Burger and Rajma Burger .

      Hello Ma,am, I tried the recipe, and everything went well, apart from that, the bottom of the buns burnt . I used the bottom heating element. I had to again switch to the top heating element to brown the buns. Which heating element should be used while baking buns and breads?

      Tarla Dalal    Hi, always remember while baking both the heating rods, the bottom and the top should be kept on.

      Tarla Dalal    Hi, you can use approx 12gms fresh yeast, which you can get from any local bakery shop. You can try making them on the stove as well.

      Tarla Dalal    Hi, you need to make sure that the yeast has bloomed well. The softness and the rise depends upon the yeast.

      I made these and followed recipe to the T. Buns came out soft but they didn’t rise. They were more like bread slice. My mixture before that was risen nicely. Any idea what went wrong? I however made them in convection.

      Tarla Dalal    Hi, If your bread has risen well, and not risen after it is baked. The reason might be, a slight bang while putting the tray in the oven and not the right temperature while you put for baking.. try it one more time, and bake for little more time like 5 minutes to get the colour on the buns.

      Hu, I tried your this recipe with wheat plus plain flour. The buns didn''t bake in 15 min as specified. I had to keep another 10 min. As a result they were not very soft. I bake pizza base of your recipe. It comes out well. In fact I have been following you since 1980.,a big fan of yours.

      Tarla Dalal    Hi, Every oven is different.. as this is the bun.. the portion size is little bigger.. the time might vary..
