Goan Breakfast Thali - Sweet Buns

Sharing is caring!

Goan Sweet Buns are breakfast dish made with dough that is fermented overnight. These are cumin flavoured and tastes excellent after fermentation.

These sweet buns are very popular in Goa and Mangalore. Similar pooris are made in Konkan region of Maharashtra. These are mildly sweet buns that are fermented. I adapted my recipe from here and I read that these are popular dish in the hotels and served for breakfast.

When I decided on making some breakfast dish from Goa, I actually first came across the side dishes that are very popular, served with baked buns. However, in due course of searching I landed in this site that talked about these fermented pooris that are also served with these Patal Bhajis.

Since it was a poori, it was so easy for me to decide on this. As much as possible, I short listed pooris as it was one of the easiest I could manage. So along with our regular poori breakfast I make these too.

I have already made Mangalore Buns and know it is prepared with banana and fermented. However, making it with just sugar and fermentation surely appealed to me.

We are starting our Week 4 of Thalis and Platters, this week it is going to be Breakfast dishes from different states, while it is going to be Street food from different cities.  For day 1 of Breakfast Dishes, it is Goan Sweet Buns in the Goan Breakfast Thali

  1. These are beautifully puffed beauties ! The fermented pooris obviously will have a different taste. Also they would pair so well with channa.

    Like that yellow hue and the spices going in there , let me give these pooris a try sometime .

  2. 5 stars
    Interesting poori and looks similar to Mangalore buns, but yes the main difference no bananas are here. The pooris look flavourful and have puffed up well.
