Roti Unyil (Indonesian Mini Buns)

When I was working in Jakarta, Indonesia, my aunt would take me for a quick car ride (hahahha what a bull crap, Jakarta is always with huge traffic, no car ride can be short whatsoever :P) to Bogor, where these mini buns are known from.

They are smaller than mini sizes, so they are called “unyil”, bite size.

I did not make them unyil size though, rather mini. You can of course make them into unyil size, just weigh the dough smaller than mine 🙂

Bloom yeast:

500 ml lukewarm water
4 tbsp skim milk powder
1/2 c sugar
2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast

Add in 1/2 c melted margarine

Stir in:

2 c AP flour
1 c bread flour

Let rest for an H

Knead in:

1 c bread flour
1/2 tsp each BP, BSoda

Dump dough on floured surface, knead for 1-2 mins, divide into 4

Turn 1 portion into cinnamon rolls (margarine, brown sugar, cinnamon powder, raisin)

Turn 1 portion into banana buns (banana, brown sugar, margarine)

Turn 1 portion into choc chip buns

Turn 1 portion as a regular round buns (once baked, brush with margarine, top with tuna floss)

Once shaped and filled, let rest until doubled in size, 45 mins at least

Bake on preheated 375 f convection oven for 10 mins

Cool on rack
