Turmeric Brioche Burger Buns
180 ml water lukewarm water
450 gms flour (more or less depending on the stickiness of the dough)
7 gms dry yeast
75 gms honey
2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon turmeric
70 gms butter
3 tablespoon sesame seeds
1 tablespoon water
For The Dough
For the Topping
Mix the honey and the instant yeast into the lukewarm water. Leave for about five minutes or until you can see foam and bubbles. That means the yeast is activated.
Until the yeast is ready to use, cut the very cold butter with a pastry cutter into the flour, ground turmeric and salt. The butter should be completely incorporated into the flour.
After the yeast is ready to use mix the egg into the brew. Add the yeast-egg mix to the flour and start kneading.
Knead the dough until it loosens from the side of the bowl and isn't sticky to the surface any longer. If your dough is very sticky and looks more like a cake batter add some more flour but don't use to much. If your dough seems very dry add some teaspoons of water, one at the time.
After the dough is ready put it into an oiled bowl, cover it with plastic wrap and let it rest somewhere dry and warm for about 1-2 hours. The dough is ready when it's doubled in size.
After the dough has doubled in size put it onto a floured surface and form it into buns.
Form your dough pieces into even round buns and put them onto a baking pan prepared with a baking sheet.
Cover them loosely with plastic wrap and let the m rise again for another 30-40 minutes.
When the buns are ready and risen preheat the oven to 180 degree C.
Until the oven is ready brush the top and sites of your buns with egg wash and sprinkle with sesame seeds or your desired topping.
Bake for 15-25 minutes depending on the size of your buns.
