Cooking Air Buns:

Step 1: breeding yeast.

Mix dry yeast, warm water, sugar and 4 tablespoons flour. Stir everything until smooth and let the mixture brew for 15-20 minutes. It will be a starter for your buns.

Step 2: prepare the dough.

After the leaven has risen, add vegetable oil and egg white whipped into a thick foam. Start mixing everything, most conveniently with a mixer, of course.
Then gradually sprinkle flour and knead a uniform, slightly sticky dough. The main thing is not to pour flour, the mass should not turn out too steep. Add salt at the end. Knead the dough yet 8-10 minutes.
Cover the mass with a kitchen towel and leave it to climb 1 - 1.5 hours in a warm place without drafts.

Step 3: form the buns.

When the dough rises, shape from it 8-10 equal balls and slightly flatten them on top.
Put your bun blanks on a baking sheet covered with parchment and let the dough rise for another 5-10 minutes.
Preheat the oven until 180 degrees.

Step 4: bake the air buns.

Lubricate the buns with beaten egg yolk and sprinkle them with sesame seeds or poppy seeds, and then send them to bake in a preheated oven (180 degrees) until golden.

When the dough gets a beautiful ruddy color, your airy buns will be ready. Remove them from the oven and cool to room temperature.

Step 5: serve the air buns.

Serve air buns instead of hot bread or as a basis for sandwiches and bread snacks. Very tasty and homely food.
Enjoy your meal!

Recipe Tips:

- The readiness of the rolls can be checked with a toothpick. Just pierce one of the buns. If pieces of dough remain on the toothpick or it comes out wet, the pastries are not yet ready.
