Simplicity is beautiful, they say. Can there be anything simpler than a couple buns smeared with generous amounts of butter along with a cup of piping hot tea? That is exactly what makes this recipe simple yet brilliant.
Bun maska is a Maharashtrian staple and has made its way through numerous Indian households due to its comfort food quality. Bun doesn’t need an introduction, but the masks here is no ordinary butter but a mouthwatering blend of fresh cream and butter. Drooling, yet? Go ahead and satiate yourself with this recipe.
Cut the bun into thin slices. Each slice should be about 2 slices of normal bread held together. Do not cut the slices too thin or t0o thick because then the maska (butter & cream) will not be able to absorb it properly.
Apply a layer (or two) of fresh cream on the white side of the bread. The more cream you add, the creamier your bun will be.
Spread some sugar over the cream. If you are already using sweet bread, then add just a bit of sugar as too much of sugar will ruin the flavour of the maska.
Place the slices of the bun with the creamy side up in the microwave and warm it for 3 minutes on medium heat.
Meanwhile, slices the cold butter. The slices of butter should be approximately the size of the bun slices.
Now place a slice of butter between two bun slices.
Serve with hot tea.
For a crispier bun maska, toast the sweet bun before putting cream on it.
