Whole Wheat Khara Buns | Savory Buns | Spicy buns recipe with step by step pictures and instructions. Khara buns are savory buns flavored with onions, green chilli and spices. My hubby loves savory bakes than sweet ones. So I always make masala buns with different stuffing or simply with onions and spices. I also love to eat like this rather than plain buns. You can make these for breakfast or evening snacks. If you are planning to make for breakfast, you can prepare the dough and keep in fridge after first proofing and bake them in morning.

It is very healthy as I made these using wheat flour and it came out so soft and flavorful. I added the masala along with flour and kneaded them. You can use any seasonings or spices or vegetables of your choice. I added milk powder since I want to clear the stock. You can skip it and make these delicious buns.
