Pour the entire contents onto a floured surface and make a dough. Add a little more flour if required so that it is not a sticky dough. Knead for 8-10 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, cover and let rise in warm place for an hour. 3 During this resting time, prepare the stuffing. Heat a vessel, add butter and let it melt. Add the garlic and saute for a mt. Add the onions and saute for 4 mts till they turn slightly transparent. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add finely sliced tomatoes and saute for another 3-4 mts. Keep aside. 4 After the dough has risen, pour onto a floured surface. punch down into a small rectangle and roll out to a 12″×24″ rectangle. Place filling evenly onto the rolled out dough, leaving about 1/2″ around all edges. Sprinkle 3 tbsps of grated cheese on top of the filling. 5 Fold over the 1/2″ of the dough on the edges and roll the dough lengthwise into a roll. Seals the ends. Cut the roll into 1 1/2″ pieces. Place each piece into a lightly greased muffin tin. Cover with a kitchen towel and let rise for another hour. 6 When they have doubled in size, sprinkle with cheese and bake at 180 C for 15-20 mts or till they turn golden in color. Let the buns rest for 4-5 mts in the tins before removing them. Remove after 5 mts and cool on a wire rack.
