Method For The Home Made Bread Buns :
With your fingers, mix the white flour, salt and dried yeast in a bowl.
Rub the softened butter or lard into the flour mixture until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
Add the milk mixture to the flour mixture and mix together with your hands until the dough is well combined. Bring the dough together into a ball.
Using floured hands, knead the dough on a clean, floured work surface for 20-25 minutes, or until the dough is elastic and smooth. If necessary add a little more warm water to loosen the dough.
When the dough has risen, return it to a floured work surface and knock it back.
Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 220C/425F/Gas 7.
When the rolls have expanded, dust them with the rice flour and transfer them to the oven. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until golden-brown and cooked through.
