And the house smells too good while these buns were in the oven, all because of the amount of the butter went in it. Its a yeasted dough which is rolled as small balls as like cookies but once they sit to proof again, once baked these Surti butter turns as a puffy crisp buns which is completely eggless with a wonderful Jeera aka cumin seed flavor.
