Bun Maska


Bun maska is nothing but bread butter, with a little twist here. This Banarasi Bun maska is one of the best bun I have had in my life, simple and sober.

Banaras has a very unique way of toasting their buns, the charred taste of the bun with dollops of butter applied on it makes one craving for more.

With my recent visit to Varanasi I did get the opportunity to taste all the famous stuff Varanasi is famous for. One of them is this Bun maska. To be frank this was my husband’s favourite and I use to wonder what is it…..now after tasting this Bun maska I am in love with it.

So thought of recreating the Bun maska which I had in Varanasi with you guys, so that you can enjoy if not possible to reach 😉

Let’s get the recipe
