Homemade Burger Buns

The good thing about homemade breads are that there are no additives. Lecithins or improvers. The other thing I find helpful is that the size and shape can be customized. Be it breads or buns or dinner rolls. And the same recipe when aesthetically different, makes such a huge difference. These are homemade burger buns but I have made it the size of sliders. They are delightfully soft yet have a bite and have the strength to hold anything you choose to stack in them. No more flimsy soggy Burgers.

Hi. I am Subalakshmi Sundar. The face behind The Petit Bite. People gathered around a table, good food, great company and fun conversations are the things that make me the happiest. This blog is an attempt to share one part of that with all of you. Great Food. Indian palate is going through a huge culinary journey right now. We are rooted in traditions but want to explore the world cuisines as well. That's what I enjoy the most. A slight Indian twist given to world recipes to suit our palate. You will find easy recipes for busy days, slightly long recipes for days when cooking is therapy and recipes that take time to come together when you want to immerse yourself in to the fine art of cooking. Whatever recipe you choose, I hope it's a pleasure to cook and to eat. Do tag me on Instagram or facebook if you try any. Nothing makes me happier. Happy cooking, y'all.. Much Love, S.
