Peanut Masala Buns

Standard

Traditionally, back in the old days all bakeries in Bangalore were called “Iyengar Bakery”. Any Bangalorean will get nostalgic when you talk about these bakeries and some of the classic snacks served there – the Vegetable and Egg Puffs, Onion Tomato Sandwich, Potato Bun, Sweet Bun, Khara Bun, Dil Pasand, the multitude of biscuits and spicy snacks etc. There are still many of these bakeries today, still rustic and classic in how they are run and what they serve.

The face of the bakery has changed over the past several years. And boy have taken the word bakery to a new level! What with serving the ever growing South Bangalore working class, student population from various parts of the country. On a balmy evening in Bangalore you can see quite a crowd outside these bakeries, all of them sipping chai and eating a samosa or a Samosa sandwich or a Jam Butter Sandwich etc.

Today recipe is from the Bakery Kitchen – a classic tea time snack, innovation at its prime 🙂
