Cooking a lean bun:

Step 1: prepare the yeast.

First, we heat the required amount of water to 35 - 37 degrees. Remember that it should not be too hot or cold, otherwise the yeast may simply not rise. Pour the desired amount of yeast into a separate container, add sugar and with constant stirring with a tablespoon, pour a glass of warm water. Leave the mixture in this state for 5 to 10 minutes, preferably in a warm place. Yeast should swell during this time.

Step 2: prepare the dough.

In order to make the dough more airy and easily knead with hands, as well as get rid of flour lumps, the flour must be sifted. Set a sieve over the plate and sift the desired amount of dry ingredient. Then add salt to it and mix with a whisk. Next, in the raised yeast, pour our salted flour and knead first with the improvised inventory until smooth, and then with your hands directly in the bowl for 10 minutes. Knead the dough into a ball, cover the container with food-grade plastic wrap or a cloth towel and put it in a warm place for 1.5 hours. During this time, it should increase in size by about 2 times.

Step 3: form the buns.

With the passage of the necessary time, remove the cling film from the container. The surface on which we will form buns, sprinkle with a small amount of sifted flour. After that, put the dough on the surface and knead again until a uniform smooth consistency. So that the dough does not stick to your hands, they can be greased with vegetable oil. Then we divide the dough with a knife into approximately equal sized pieces. And from each roll up balls of the desired size. The shape of the rolls in this recipe is not essential. Grease a baking tray with vegetable oil or cover it with baking paper. Next, put the test balls on a baking sheet, leaving a certain distance between them.

Step 4: bake the buns.

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius, and let the test balls settle 10 to 15 minutes. Then grease each swollen ball with vegetable oil using a kitchen brush. After that, in the oven preheated to the desired temperature, remove the baking sheet with the dough and bake the buns for 25-30 minutes until ready. The readiness of the dish can be visually determined, if your pastry is covered with a delicious golden blush, then you can get the pan from the oven. To do this, we use kitchen tacks. Fragrant, hot buns are separated from the baking sheet with a metal spatula and spread on a large beautiful dish.

Step 5: serve the lean bun.

Lean buns are served at room temperature with tea or sweet compote. You can supplement them with homemade jam or jam. Delicate pastry, delicious sun-like buns will certainly please your guests and loved ones. Enjoy your meal!
