Garlic Rolls (without Egg)

Ingredients: (makes 8 rolls)
  • Plain Flour- 3 cups
  • Warm Water- 1 cup*
  • Yeast- 1tbps #
  • Salt - 1tsp
  • Sugar- 2 tbps
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil- 2-3 tbps
Used for making garlic buns, rolls and even can be spreaded on breads before toasting it.
Salted Butter- 50grams
Garlic- 3 grated
Coriander leaves - 2 tbps (chopped)
Bring butter to room temperature.
Mix everything together. 
Can be stored in the chill tray for upto one week.
  • Mix everything together except oil with warm water and knead  until you get a smooth dough.
  • Add oil and knead until the dough springs back when you press with your finger.
  • Apply oil and allow to rise for 40-45 minutes. By this time it will be double its initial size.
  • Make the garic spread.
  • Knock down the air in the dough and divide the dough into two equal portions.
  • Grease a baking pan or loaf tin with butter.
  • Roll the dough using a rolling pin. Apply flour to prevent sticking.
  • The rolled out dough must be at least half inch thick.
  • Try to make it more like a rectangle. Apply one tablespoon of the garlic spread on it.
  • Roll it and cut it into two equal parts and further cut the two parts into two, so that you get 4 equal rolls.
  • Now place the rolls with the cut side up in the greased pan.
  • Repeat the same procedure for the remaining dough.
  • Apply the balance garlic spread on top and apply milk or egg wash which ever you prefer.
  • Sprinkle sesame seeds (optional)
  • Allow to proof for another 20 minutes.
  • In the mean time preheat the oven to 180 degree C.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes until the house is filled with the aroma of roasted garlic and bread..
  • Take a bite into this lovely soft and flavourful rolls. You will surely fall in love with it.
* The quantity of water depends on the brand of flour used. I sometimes use less than a cup, sometimes more than a cup for the same 3 cups of flour.
# I add 1 tablespoon yeast for a quick rise. You can reduce the quantity of yeast(say 1tsp) and let it rise slowly too.
