"Mangalore buns" or "buns" is a popular breakfast and tea time snack in Udupi-Mangalore region of Karnataka. Mangalore buns are sweet and soft fluffy pooris, having maida and banana as the main ingredients. Unlike regular pooris, mangalore buns require 4-6 hours of fermentation. Mangalore buns are usually served with a spicy coconut chutney and sambar, but they also taste great without any accompaniment. Mangalore buns can stay for couple of days.
I have posted another tasty poori recipe from Karavali region, called kayi vade (spicy rice flour poori). Do try that also.
Maida and baking soda are used in the Mangalore buns recipe. So if you are very health conscious, then replace maida with wheat flour and use sour curd or ferment the dough for more time to reduce the quantity of baking soda. Whatever it is, taste these yummy mangalore buns atleast once because they are very very tasty!!
