Butterfly Pea Flower Buns#BreadBakers

    For this May 2019 Bread Bakers challenge Mireille Roc suggested Bread with flowers - Bake a bread with flowers in any form . You can utilize fresh flowers , dried flowers , preserved flowers , flower waters. Some examples include preserved rose , dried lavender , rose water , orange blossom water , elderflower syrup.


  I choose to make Butterfly pea flower buns as I had some flowers dried from our home garden . It was my wish to make a blue coloured bread with this flower. Even though I didn't get the bright blue colour on my bread , I was satisfied with the results. 

  The flowers I used in the buns were from homegrown plant and dried in shade, so I could say these are organic produce. 

 I made a tea by boiling the butterfly pea flowers with water and used that blue colour water to make this buns.







Requirements :

 3 cup all purpose flour
 1 tbs Instant dry yeast 
 100 g of Dried / Fresh Butterfly pea flower
 2 tbs sugar 
 1tsp salt 
 One and half cup water
 Few cashews 
 Butter for brushing

 Method : 

In a bowl mix the flour , yeast , salt and sugar together.

Add the dried butterfly pea flower in a pan along with water  and boil for two minute. Let it rest for ten minutes, so the water will be tinted with blue colour from the flower. 

 Use this water to knead the dough. Knead for about ten minutes till the dough is soft and smooth.

 Cover the bowl with a kitchen towel and let it ferment for two hour.

 After the dough is doubled , sprinkle little flour and roll into small smooth buns.

 Place the buns on the baking tray and brush melted butter on top. I placed a whole cashew on top as a garnish.

 Leave the buns for another 30 minute to double.

 Bake in a preheated oven for 20 minutes @ 200*C.

Let the buns cool and serve.

 Blueish Butterfly pea buns are ready to serve....

 Note : 

 I didn't add any flavouring agent to the buns , if you want you can add.

 Fresh flowers can be used to brew the butterfly pea tea. I used dried flower .

I didn't add butter to the dough .
