These buns are also known as banana buns. You need to let the dough ferment for minimum 7-8 hours. So, if you want to make them for breakfast, you can prepare the dough overnight and let it ferment. I have used Idhayam mantra groundnut oil for deep frying these buns. You can also try out these Vegan Banana muffins using Idhayam Mantra groundnut oil.
