Mangalore Buns

I am a Mangalorean and everytime I visit Mangalore I ask my cousin to buy these for our evening snack along with Goli bajne (another type of fritter). It taste amazing piping hot with a cup of chai.

I always land up making cake or fritters with over ripe bananas, am so glad I made Buns instead today. Bliss
