Fried coconut buns

It's basically the same recipe for my microwave coconut bun, but since I know some of you don't cook with microwave i cook it in the stove in a pan. And it turns out well except it has a little sliminess of the psyllium compare to the microwave ones. Also if you are going to bake this it will take a lot of time to totally cook the psyllium, about 50-60 minutes in a 350f preheated oven. 

Recipe: 1 tbsp of coconut flour
1 tbsp of psyllium husk ( home ground) 
If you are gonna use the store bought psyllium powder use less about 3/4 tbsp
1 whole egg
1/4 tsp of Italian dried herbs
1/4 tsp of baking powder
Pinch of salt
2 and 1/2 tbsp of water 

For frying: 1 tbsp of unsalted butter

Method: 
Heat your pan in medium heat 
If you have a pan that is nonstick and have a cover I suggest you use that
just mix everything together really well in a bowl
When it looks like a dough, divide it into 2-3 portion.
Form it into a ball and put it the heated pan
Flatten it using spatula
Fry it without oil, 5 minutes in each side with a cover
Now add the butter, lower your heat and cook for additional 5 minutes in each side with a cover. Now the texture is way different than the microwave version, this one still got a little sliminess fromthe psyllium   where the microwave have none at all.
