10 dough balls will make larger buns, and if you roll dough into 12 balls then you will have smaller buns.
If you have time in your hand then let the dough rest for longer. This will enhance its flavour.
You can sprinkle sesame seed or poppy seed on bun after applying egg wash.
Cooking time will depend on the size of your patties.
