This is going to be a perfect Valentine treat for ur loved ones. I already posted Thengai/Coconut bakery bun and Soft dinner rolls, so mixed these two recipes and came up with heart shaped dinner rolls/ soft buns with coconut filling. If you don’t like coconut can replace it with nuts too…This recipe is really a Healthy low fat version n pure Vegetarian too (See Note). Even I brushed with milk over the top of the buns. I have not added any eggs or butter. The Yogurt, Oil n Multigrain flour combo worked great n tasted good too. Here comes the recipe in detail
APF - 1 Cup + 1 or 2 Tbsp for kneading
Wheat flour/Multi Grain Flour - 1/2 Cup (I used Multi grain flour)
Active Rapid Dry Yeast - 1tsp
Thick Yogurt - 1/4 Cup
Milk - 1/2 Cup

Shredded coconut - 1/2 Cup
Chopped Nuts (Almonds/Pista/Cashew/Walnuts) - 1/4 Cup
Tutti Frutti - 1/4 Cup (Optional)

•Chop the nuts to small bits.
•Heat oil n fry the nuts till golden brown, put off the stove and then add shredded coconut.

Method for Making bun

•No need to wait for the mixture to ferment.
•Mix the flours (reserve 2 Tbsp for later use), make a well in center.
