3 1/2 cups of plain flour (or bread flour)

1 sachet of yeast

1 teaspoon salt

1 cup hot water

Mix all dry ingredients lightly, slowly add in the water and start mixing from the centre till a dough starts coming together. Knead a few minutes, then place this dough in a lightly oiled bowl and cover with cling wrap or a tea towel to allow it to rise. After a couple of hours check it again and it should have doubled. Place this on a lightly floured board and knead lightly again. Place this in a lightly oiled loaf tin and bake in preheated medium heat oven for about 30 mins. The bread should be a light brown.

From this dough, you can divide into 6-8 bun sizes and bake it on a greased tray.
