Cooking Onion Buns:
Step 1: prepare the dough.
First of all, we need to prepare the yeast. We turn on the stove on medium heat and put on it a stewpan with 200 milliliters of pure water. We heat the liquid to 37 - 40 degrees Celsius and pour it into a deep bowl.
Pour 50 milliliters of milk at room temperature there and add 1 tablespoon of dry granulated yeast. Mix these ingredients with a tablespoon until smooth. After we introduce 1 glass of sifted wheat flour into the same bowl. Re-mix the dough and place it in a warm place (near the stove) on 5 to 10 minutes.
Step 2: prepare the dough - stage one.
After 5 - 10 minutes, use a knife to break the egg shell, pour the yolk and protein into a small bowl and lightly beat everything with a table fork. After we separate from the beaten mass 2 - 3 tablespoons of the egg mixture and pour it into a small bowl, these eggs will be needed to grease the buns. The rest of the egg mass (from a deep plate) is poured into a bowl with dough.
There we add 50 grams of softened butter, 1 tablespoon of granulated sugar, 1 teaspoon of salt, 1 cup of wheat flour and knead the batter. After we tighten the bowl with the dough with plastic wrap. We put her in a warm place on 20-30 minutes.
Step 3: prepare the onion.
While the dough is infused, peel 3 to 4 heads of onions from the husk. Then we thoroughly rinse them under cold running water and dry them with paper kitchen towels to prevent excess moisture. We put the onions on a cutting board and cut into medium or small cubes. Leave the cut on the cutting board and immediately proceed to the next step.
Step 4: fry the onions.
Turn on the stove over medium heat and put on it a frying pan with 2 - 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil. When the oil warms up, dip the onion cubes into it. Stew them, stirring with a kitchen spatula 45 minutes to a light golden crust. Then transfer the fried onions to a clean deep plate.
Step 5: prepare the dough - stage two.
After the batter has been infused for 20 to 30 minutes, we proceed to the second stage of its preparation. Add the fried onions and 1 cup sifted wheat flour to the bowl with the dough.
We start the batch with clean hands, gradually adding the remaining flour. When the dough becomes dense, plastic and slightly sticky, cover the bowl with a cloth towel and place it in a warm place on 1 - 1.5 hours.
Step 6: form the buns.
After 1 - 1.5 hours We cover the non-stick baking sheet with a sheet of baking paper and using a baking brush, grease the sheet with 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil. We knead the dough with clean hands, roll it into a sausage, put it on the countertop and divide the metal kitchen spatula into 9 to 10 equal parts.
From each piece of dough we form a small ball. We lay them on a baking sheet prepared for baking. Attention: there should be some free space between the balls in 3 - 4 centimeters, as the buns will increase in size during baking. We put the baking tray with rolls in a warm place and let them rise for 20 minutes.
Step 7: bake onion buns.
While the buns are infused, preheat the oven to a temperature of 180 degrees Celsius. After 20 minutes, using a baking brush, grease the risen rolls with a beaten chicken egg from a small bowl.
We put a baking tray with buns in a preheated oven on a medium rack. Bake them for 20 minutes. During this time, the rolls will reach full readiness and covered with a pale golden blush.
After the required time has passed, we put on the kitchen gloves and remove the pan from the oven. We put it on a cutting board, previously laid on the kitchen table. Cool the rolls to room temperature. Then, helping ourselves with a kitchen spatula, we shift the pastries onto a large flat dish and serve.
Step 8: serve the onion buns.
Onion buns are served at room temperature. It is pleasant to eat first and second hot dishes with them. They can also be used as a basis for sandwiches. And with a cup of hot tea or coffee, they will be just great. Enjoy it!
Enjoy your meal!
- Sometimes, before greasing the buns with a beaten egg, cross-shaped incisions are made on their surface so that the crust of the buns does not crack during baking.
- If desired, before baking rolls, you can sprinkle with sesame seeds, fried seeds, poppy seeds or chopped pistachios.
- If desired, water can be replaced with milk or kefir.
- If desired, the following spices can be added to the dough: sage, rosemary, thyme, marjoram, tarragon, cumin, rosemary. And these are just a few of the options available.
